    I posted this in the garden section, but it seems pretty dead over there, so I hope to get more feedback here:)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have a large 9 plant raised garden bed and I normally get at least 4-5 seeds of renewal from each harvest of 72 seeds from my orange poppies. In the last 2 harvests, I have got zero, none, nada, 0! Is this just bad luck or did they change the garden beds in the last publish?

    Thanks:)

    Nine plants aren't very many. I'd guess it was probably just a run of bad luck for that particular harvest.

    Its probably just bad luck. The RNG is almost always streaky for me.

    Well, I added a second raised garden bed, so that gives me a total of 144 seeds per harvest--I will see if my lick gets any better. I was happy with my 4-5 seeds per harvest from my 9 plants as I only use them for my own imbuing---I am not a seed seller and do not realy want to have to grow 1000 plants just to get a few seeds.

    i have 2 x 9 sized beds, have since day 1 when they came out.
    and the RNG is killer.

    some harvests i get none, some i get like 5-7 between the 18 plants.

    i think if you worked it all out youd be down to like 1 per 9 plants.
    its a very very low number from what i can see.

    but hey, you get a lot of orange pedals!

    You are cross polinating them? Just checking. I get SOR from my 9 plants but with only 9 they are few and far between. Just keep at it. Oops never mind the cross polinating thing that is for mutants

    How about 3 levels of this? :love:

    As long as the plant makes seeds... you have the same odds of getting SoRs as you do growing them by hand. This pic is a special "grow house" and cost way-big money to set up. The plant beds as singles, 9 units max, are just a drop in the water to what you can grow on 1 of your guys. I have 3 guys that grow 110 plants each, every day. Eats potions, unlike the grow house... but time and time again I can see low and highs with the SoR output.

    Its a grow house, and its obviously what she loves to do, so it must of been a good idea for her at least.

    I was going to attempt to put together something similar but didn't have any ideas on where to start. Thanks your screen shot gave me a good amount of Inspiration. Soon Operation Green-House for Baja

    I have 18 strips of twenty plants and harvest/replant one strip a day. 20 plants (160 seeds) give me anywhere from 0 to 9 SoR with the trend about 4 to 7 SoR each day. It does run in streaks.

    Tricky Pixie Tricks...

    Clearly, you see 13 in this one shot, however only has the 3 levels packed. Each level can actually have more, but I was going for a little more pleasant house design then a big ugly box. The friend I designed this house for spent a lot of money on those upgrades... just for the beds and I think it was a little bonkers, but that’s what he wanted to do. I just end up filling the house over and over again as he’s too busy to mess with it. hehe

    That house that has 13 full size beds on all 4 levels will give you 468 plants at a time. I sure don’t sell that anymore. It would have come in handy 2 years ago. My town Garden Center is packed with plants for sale, but I don’t cover all the odds and end colors. Champions of every color, for dyes and baskets... décor. That’s all.

    If you are bonkers enough to try something like this... please, please, please... don't it a big ugly box. :D

    Wow, that is pretty cool, but $350 in raised planters (if you buy the theme packs) is way out of range on my little military pension....lol

    Thanks for all the info....I guess it is all in the RNG!

    "Too bad ya cant grow some high grade recreational stuff, hehe" lol too funny:)

    It is streaky but percentage wise seeds of renewal tend to drop at a rate of four to five percent of all seeds harvested.

    I have to say I really like the garden layout there. It's too bad the only way to get the raised garden bed is for rl$. There's only one I found for sale on any shard for 29 million gp.

    Trust me... poor as I am in real life, I could have used that 350$ for a LOT of good stuff other then throwing it into the EA bin. Some people have money to burn... not me. I have worthless game money.
