Why start Gardening?
Seedling: A seedling is the plant as soon as you’ve planted it. It won’t develop needs, and there’s not much to do but wait.
Young: The first stage of growth. It will take longer to reach the next stage and will have needs you have to attend.
Mature: This stage takes the longest, has the most needs and requires the most work to maintain. In this stage you also start collecting rewards from your garden.
Elder: At this final stage your plants will no longer require any tending and can be left for as long as you like. It is here that you get the best rewards.
Wilting: This is the first stage of a dying plant and it occurs if you fail to meet a seed’s needs. You can correct this stage by meeting the seed’s needs, but the plant will reset to the Young stage.
Dead: This is the stage your plant will reach if you completely ignore it. It will cost 30 energy and the Revive spell to get it back if you let it reach this stage.
Concepts to Understand
House: Some houses provide an immediate Like to plants. The current houses to offer this benefit are the Red Barn Farm and the Botanical Gardens.
Energy: Do not try to plant a large garden without energy gear. Large gardens drain a ton of energy, and you’re going to need all you can get.
Liked plants can be dead: This is a weird one. A plant that you use only as another plants “Like” doesn’t need to be alive to give the “Like” benefit.
