    My imbuing addiction has me burning through resources. Most aren't hard to collect or sell at a reasonable price. But I haven't figured out a good way to collect seeds of renewal.

    So here is my question... Is gardening an effective way to collect seeds of renewal for the effort?

    I've never done any plant growing. So I'd have to learn the system. Is it worth my time for these special seeds? Or should I do something else, collect gold, and keep buying them?

    Thanks for the advice.

    I grew plants maybe 6 years ago, and then when i found out i could get seeds i thought id set up another grow room.
    Well, i planted maybe 40 plants, and at the end of the 10 days i think i got maybe 6 seeds. Maybe it was just bad luck, but after that i was just like "well thats not worth it." Just checking each plant and adding the needed potions is very time consuming. I know people who care for 100s of plants, i dont know how they can do it.
    If you enjoy UO gardening, and like to grow plants not just for the seeds (as i did) but also to cross-polinate to get rare colors you can make into dyes then i would suggest it, but otherwise i think the quickest way is still to bash rats with your favorite rat stick in cavern of the discarded. (or do anything to make gold / buy the seeds)

    I had the same thought so over easter while i was off i grew ~1000 plants. It took about 4 hours each day to water and care for them, every day for 3 weeks! I ended up with just over 300 seeds.

    Doing the maths, thats ~30mill for 70+ hours of watering, plus all the regents it took to make all the potions.

    If you have the time each day to care for them its a stady supply of seeds and rare seeds for dyes. The only issues is it kinda gets addictive and youll find yourself growing all the rare seeds to make the dyes and so on...

    I grow a lot of plants for green thorns, orange petals and seeds of renewal. The seed of renewal rate is around 5% of all seeds created by your plants.
