    Is there a logical reason why the plant care timer is set at a hard 24 hrs?

    Instead of the check coming at server up, and resetting every morning?

    That way, if we were late one night, we wouldn't miss a check, we could do it anyway. The way it's set now, you work em for days at/about 5 pm, and then if you have to work late one day, have someone sick, or for any reason are late getting home and can't tend em till 9pm, you are locked into that late of a time for the rest of their growth cycle...gets old especially with resource bearing plants :)

    But if the reset timer was at server up, it wouldn't matter, you could tend em once a day, at any time of the day, without having that time be set for the rest of the growth cycle. Surely this can't be too ahrd to program in?

    Try Try and Try some more gardening
    i am not the most mindful of gardeners
    i do my watering between other stuff when i remember
    so yes i loose whole batches of plants to bad watering habits

    your posts idea would make things easier because then i would not be checking on them all the time when i have no idea when they will be at next check i tend not to look at clock when i play games so i never know when i did them last.

    but seriously
    i just rather they make a gardener npc i can hire to tend to my plants given the right materials it takes care of them all for me and gives me an update as to what has happened to my plants and i can ajust the required materials tell it to give big doses of potions and the like. Just add it into the things the npc barkeep can turn into. I like the options it has and think when you do go clean them up from the fallen rubble of many past homes they should get a little love and attention!!

    If you are growing on a beetle or a character, then this is where your issue comes in. If you lock them down in your house, they will run a check at server reset and you will then have all day long to tend to your plants.

    It's also WHY I grow on my character - if I can't log in for whatever reason one day, I don't miss the growth check =) It waits til I log in, then starts the counter again.

    I prefer it the way it is =)
