right now i'm trying to grow light ores in porcelain flowerpots. got 5 going, and they're 2 or 3 days past 2nd feed phase so harvest should be soon. i'll post results after. i know its a small sample but i'm just trying to build up some more money from it to exand it to 10 arcane pots on main and 2 mules. 1 growing all ore, 1 half ore/half saplings, and 1 all saplings.

they released some info on a gardening adjustment. characters less than 90 days old can only get 1 thing per attempt at gardening. some RMT counter measure.

I would say they began bans on gardeners & some crafters / chefs because they were involved with RMT accounts, even if they didn't know about it as a regular player as well. The updates of this year show they're banning those that even though they never RMT'd, they were associates even if unaware with illegal RMT.

square enix is *** us all. they did this to clothcraft too. Pre-WOTG it was wicked easy to make money off of clothcraft. I spent 10Million and many many hours working on clothcraft, i made my cursed mitts -1 off of clothcraft alone, crafting small +1 items like mohbwa sash/scarf and qiqirn sash+1 to perpetuate the losses. after wotg, this died. HQ rates were jacked up.

they've PISSED on us all by nerfing HQ rates and taking our well earned in game advantage over other players at making money. They are doing the same to gardening also.

What it is, with the announcement of XIV, less people are playing, more are quitting, selling their accounts etc, they are trying to keep us glued by making gil harder to earn and more precious. This is one of those such nerfs.

From what I heard from a friend, there was a glitch when doing gardening before, where if you only had 1 space of inventory, you wouldn't be able to garden. So in turn, you keep trying til it gives you an ore. This may be the reason you're looking for.
Needless to say, but that char that did this was banned. Goodbye 10 billion gil and 150 fire ores. O.x
