[Gardening] Dumb Greater Strength Question?

Discussion in 'UO Botany and Nutrition' started by Timothy_SP, Feb 23, 2010.

    Is it wise to always apply 1 Greater Strength Potion to plants every growth cycle? Or does that cut into profits too much?

    Take note I'm on Siege and prices for reagents, kegs, etc might be a bit different price.

    Thanks in advance.

    I only use greater strength if my plant is withered, saves alot of resources that way.

    Do you notice more plant illness that way?

    I've never bothered to do them otherwise but I do go through a ton of poison potions so maybe there's something to it.

    I noticed I need very few Greater Cures and moderate Greater Poisons I'm doing 80 plants right now. Each cycle I need to use roughly 25-35 Greater Poisons and maybe 3-5 Greater Cures. That is with 1 Greater Strength the prior cycle.

    Maybe I'll have to take more accurate notes and use greater sample size.

    I always use 2 greater str on all of my plants. The only other potion I need is greater poison. I have tried not using GS and had trouble with multiple ailments such as insect and fungus at the same time. Never happens when GS is used.

    No need to use Greater Strength unless your plant get low in health. Cactus need less potions and water than flowers.

    I used to apply 2 greater strength to every plant. I would sometimes need to apply poison but never cure. Now I grow way too many plants to do this, so I only apply potions as needed. If you are growing plants mainly for stains, I recommend growing cactus. They are very tough plants and require fewer potions than other plants.
