    I've been gathering white seeds from the naturalist quest to try to find white campions, but so far when I ID the seeds I only get the modern type plants such as Orfluers, Foxgloves, Hedges, etc. Is this "bad" luck or a bug where I'm only getting modern type plants when IDing the white seed from the naturalist quest? I've been at it for at least a month, so I'm starting to worry lol.

    I've not noticed that the white seeds were only giving the new flowers. I'll test it out today and see what happens.

    If you're specifically looking for campions it might actually be easier to grow a bunch of campions, cross-pollinate them and hope for white mutations. At least that way you'll get 8 white campion seeds at a go.

    Yeah that's true, I didn't think of being able to get 8 white seeds at once rather than just one at a time. Both ways I'm sure will take a good while, but like you said at least I'll get 8. So I'll give that a go. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

    Venora, I have 8 white campion seeds on Origin that you can have if you have a way to get them to Atlantic. Shoot me a PM if you want them.

    Venora, i've attached a spreadsheet of all the seeds available in the naturalist quest..

    Note that the spots in red are the seeds that i've not attained yet but do exist.

    This should help you see whats available. (click on pdf to open below)

    Good Luck,

    -jill

    How exactly do you get White Seeds from a plant. I am new to this and I thought the only way to get them was from the quest. Thx!

    cross-pollination, but it's a hard road. I have 2 garden beds and x'd my plants for in excess of 2 months before I got a black plant

    Do you just cross pollinate any 2 plants, or does it have to be two types of the same?

    The parent plants determine the offspring type. If you want a specific type then you had best use two of the same parents and cross them.

    It might be an urban legend, its been too long for me to say I remember for certain, but I thought the wisdom on both white and black seeds was to stress the plants after cross pollination.

    I grow mine in raised flower beds and have received several batches of mutant seed since I last replied to this thread.

    I think that is just an old wives tale.
