So I'm new to the gardening scene and just wanted to ask some with more experience a question. I just harvested 20 vegetable seed plants(12 Brass/8 Porcelain), planted on lightsday, checked once every darksday daily, fed dark crystal on darksday, harvested on darksday, Moon at planting and harvesting was around 70-78% so WXG I think(sorry can't quite remember).I ended up with 8 screaming fungus out of 20 plants, was slightly dissapointed. Was this a normal yield or did I do something wrong/could've done something better? Mostly got dark rocks/light crystals, and like 2 mushrooms. Thank you!

That is actually normal to high.

There's a reason they are 100K+ a stack ;)

Agreed, seems normal. I've been doing the same using ceramic pots and always seem to get an even split between light crystals, scream fungus, dark rocks, woozyshroom.

I'm in a similar situation. I used to garden back in the day and I still had all my furniture to do so on mule. I

  • Bought 10 Arcane Pots (they're so cheap now)

  • Planted vegetable seeds on darksday

  • Check my plants at least twice a day morning and evening (not on any particular day)

  • Feed dark crystal on darksday

  • Harvest on darksday, preferably close to full moon



I've got a total of 5 scream fungi out of three harvests. :P What gives? Can't help but feel that they've changed gardening somehow. I used to get more consistent results with it. Now I mostly just get light crystals and black rocks. >_>; Jokes on me?

Oh and here's pikko pots data:

She apparently got fairly consistent fungi with the vegetable seed/dark crystal regardless of the type of pot used. :P

Edit: The 4 fungi per harvest is apparently untrue for arcane pots since I've got a total of 5 scream fungi. Don't be fooled :P

Just as an update, I finally had a harvest a 11 scream fungi today. 300k a stack seems like too little for all this effort. ;) I honestly don't know how there are always elshenas on the AH at this rate...

Effort for me because my POL crashes 40% of the time when switching chars, lol. 80% of the time when checking my dbox. >_> Last update really screwed with my windower.
