    It seems that very few players are using the planting system established for Magincia, and I suspect that part of the reason is the fact that plants must be tended every day in order to keep them from wilting or dying. I've started a few plants there, but because I'll be away from home for several days over the Christmas holidays, I will not be able to keep them going. Since my purpose for planting them was actually to add a bit of beauty to a particular area, I would have liked to have been able to keep them there indefinitely.

    My suggestion would be to make it only necessary to tend the plants every few days or so once they are mature. I think this would give UO's serious deco-gardeners more incentive to make use of the system.

    Not only tend them every day, but they are far more trouble then it's worth!

    They can't be set to the landscape… even when grown, everyday tending just drains your potion stocks. 1 plant can be plated per day by 1 character… just part of the disappointment, thus why no one bothers. Even then, only a few true gardeners even care about growing the plants… in mass… for sale… for everyone.

    I tried doing a simple 3x3 9-plant garden feature on the corner of a crossroads. It became more trouble then the every day 330 plant dailies I do.

    On Atlantic, they are being used by on group as a gang tag. Got to love it.

    When I plant a seed, the system makes me wait three days befoe I can plant another with the same character. It definitely discourages gardeners.
