    Has anyone more informations about?
    - How does it work?
    - Is it similar to bod books? (5 seeds = 1 item count, each seed gets its own tray)
    - Does an identified seed stay identified after taking it out of the box?
    - How many different seeds can be put into? (The known picture of the box had 20 trays)
    - What are unique seeds? (Do they count 2 for 1 item count?)
    - What about stacking seeds?

    Good questions. I'd like to know, too... this is the first vet reward I've been excited about in a long time!

    The seed box contains 20 seed per page (max 10 pages).

    It can hold 200 kind of seeds (that's what does it mean Unique Seeds) and 500 seeds in total (because you can add stack of seeds).

    Because of these limits I don't think real gardeners will use them for storing their seeds. (My stacks of seeds are more than 500 each.)

    It's only useful for identifying seeds and we already have poppy seed dust for that.

    So I don't think I'll be wasting a vet pick on one of these.

    well if you put 200 different seeds inside, it will takes just 1 storage in your house... I will use one of this for my seeds collection :D

    Thanks Pinco for the info. I have thousands upon thousands of seeds. The 500 seed limit is the deal breaker for me.

    True, but I am very happy I don't have to go hunt / grow / wait for poppy seed dust to ID seeds. Just drop them in the box and away you go.

    Think I may have to grab one as a vet reward - or see if they come up for sale on vendors

    A couple of questions for anyone who has already acquired one of these boxes:

    If you put a stack of 10 seeds of the same color/type into the box, do they all go in one slot/section, or do they end up spread out in 10 slots?

    If you put unidentified seeds in the box, it sounds like putting them in the box identifies them. Do they keep their new identity when you remove them from the box or do they revert to some generic label once you pull them out?

    If you put a total of 500 seeds in the box or 200 types of seeds in it, how much does the box weigh? (1 stone per seed in the box?)

    Can you put a seed box with seeds in it in your bankbox and if yes, how many items does it count for in your bankbox? Can you put a filled seedbox into another container in your house?

    Can you put seeds into a seed box or remove them while it is in your bankbox or while it is within another container?

    Does a seed box have regular container security settings when it is secured within a house?

    Thanks!

    if you put a stack of xx number of seeds in they go into one spot.

    if you put a unknown seed into the box if I remember right, after removing it does keep the id.

    unknown have not filled it up.
    unknown never put it in my bank just my house.
    don't know.

    Yes you can set the security like anything else.

    Hope it helps.

    :)

    It is a page of the explanation of the seed box though is easy.
    Though English only has to be able to be read.
