to consider reasonable suggestions and tweaks to the gardening mini-game, how about considering modifying the number of FD it takes to grow one plant? I'm thinking maybe 8 to 12 FD would be a reasonable number per plant? In the end, using FD usually gives us a net of about 1 bonus day (if we remember to use extra Strength and Heath potions daily so on average we get our "Pop" stage seven on day 5 (23 hours after you plant and the first time you water, that little green spec is stage 2) and we can deco on day 8 if appropriate... if growing with seeds we'll generally get one extra bonus over the life of the plant meaning two bonus days out of the 15 total days it took. When you think about only Earth Eles (and Ore Eles) and Ant Lions drop FD and normally between 2 to 4 pieces with occasionally 5 pieces, you are looking at about 12 to 16 kills or there abouts per plant right now... seems a bit over done to be able to grow one plant. I know we can plant Green Thorns in dirt and grow regs which sometimes include FD and you can get 20 or so FD off a single Green Thorn sometimes... on the other hand, you can only plant 1 Green Thorn every 3 or 4 minutes and it's really boring and stupid to just stand around waiting until you can drop a second thorn. Very frustrating so I never bother with that way at all. Anyway, I'm hoping you will consider changing the balance of how much FD it takes to grow a single plant... I'm thinking 3 to 5 kills worth of FD is plenty IMHO... but that's just me.
