[Gardening] Mr. Dead Thumb needs help

    Well I read all the forums and the UO site. I planted some plants. After a few days they all died. I watered them every day, and added 2 GH, GS, and GC potions each day. The forums said that the potions would help even if the plant was not sick. Any ideas on keeping these things healthy?

    I'd start with reading this FAQ --> http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=95422

    You don't always want to water every day... some plants like Cactus don't always use a water and so if you add one you will flood the plants...

    Also if you were adding Greater Cures every day to every plant, that's what killed them... you only want to add those when they are needed.

    The FAQ linked above takes you step by step through understanding when each potion is needed.

    Post again after reading if you still have questions.

    Aside fromt he FAQ (which I really do reccomend you read, helps HEAPS to get the hang of it!) this site has a "plant doctor" which is REALLY useful when you are first starting out =)

    I have never had one of the new plants not need water. The old plants do work that way though.

    He didn't say if he planted "New" or "Legacy" plants... I assumed it could be either... but giving a plant GC when it isn't in need of it will make it sick.

    Its unfortunate and hard to know if its what happened, but there is a bug that will age plants a few days in a single growth cycle effectively killing the plants. I have not heard if they have fixed this issue yet or not. Its random I've had it happen to one or two plants out of a dozen in a batch.
