Help on growing hedges

    I am in a shard where nobody sells plants at all in the vendor stalls. I have no recourse but to try grow my own crop.

    I followed the procedure on softening the dirt then planting the seed. After one day however the seed withered? Something I must have done wrong in the watering because the dirt turned soppy and squishy?

    Any tips on how I can succeed on my future tries wasted sonme valuable orange petal bearing seeds in my experimentation :blushing:

    TIA for any help.

    Stratics has an newly updated gardening page

    Tower of Roses also has easy to navigate charts for cross-pollinating

    Don't over-water or over-potion your plants, do only what is required by the plant gump. A yellow minus sign by the pitcher or the potions means only one dose is needed. I've never been successful in recovering a plant that's over-watered, tho there may be a way to do it.

    i have recovered a few, I just add heal & strength, a few times i added 2.. some times they still dye, sometimes they live, thats a gamble once they get to wither

    but its weird that after one day it withers :( usually it goes to unhealth then withers.. but with plants ive found that anything is possible :(

    if they dirt turns squisy or sloppy then uve over watered them... ONLY water em if they have the yellow minus on it,

    what i do to start
    add dirt to bowl (firtle or normal)
    add 2 waters to make dirt soft
    add seed
    then I add ONE heal & one strength to help ( ppl differ on if u should do this at start or not, but it works for me)
    then take care of it by addin what it needs & the pages DO provided help out better than i could explain :)

    You can dump the seed out of the bowl and try again, it doesn't waste the seed if you can recover it before the plant goes green (I think).
