How does your Garden grow?
May 4th, 2014, 8:09 am

Gardening in Eorzea. It's a beautiful thing. Does anyone else appreciate how deep this system is? Kind of amazing to me what all goes into it.

For example, my ultimate goal with it is getting Jute and Glazenuts. I've been working on the Glazenut side for a while now. To get it, I need Kukuru Bean seeds and Apricot Kernels, both of which need to be interbred to obtain. It took me 2 full growing cycles at constant fertilizing (which is about 8 days) to get 4 apricot kernels, and I just today started on attempting to breed Kukuru seeds.

As a preparation for it all I had to get my miner geared enough to harvest the grade 3 Thanalan topsoil, which only spawns at an unspoiled node, and you can only get 1 each time. So that's 1 topsoil every 72 minutes at the most, per person. Then I had to gather Honey Lemon Seeds, Dzemael Tomato Seeds, and Prickly Pineapple Seeds, all of which are on unspoiled nodes and one each time as well. Those 3 together started the Apricot production.

...and I didn't even start on the Jute side yet at all, which will require the same sort of effort.

With all of that... no wonder the top tier grown materials sell for over a million on the market boards.

So how y'all doing with it?

Yes, it is amazing just how wondrous this system is. That is why we have a gardening team that is studying (and putting into practice) all of the cross breeding methods available to date. Plus we have a whole company of gatherers to help obtain the soils and such. Therefore we can operate it all in a fair and organized manner, including the distribution of those uber rare mats within the company.

Happy to say that so far we have successfully crossbreed plants and produced the following deluxe seeds: Azeyma Rose, Nymeia Lily x2 and Shroud Tea. We should have results of these endeavors in a few days.

Very nice!

I just had a batch produce some Royal Kukuru Bean seeds yesterday, once it's planting time today I'll have a field full of potential... the potential for Glazenut seeds.

If that works out I'll look into Jute production.... I'm sure that'll be exciting!

Jute will be awesome, but major grats on the kukuru and hopes of glazenuts as well. :TBfired:

The gardening is a ton of fun and when you start to harvest and get a bag of seeds, it is a thrill. :hkclap:

Congrats on the seeds! It's always good to get something for your efforts. Hopefully with those seeds and the Nymeia Lily seeds you bought you should be able to produce something wonderful. Good luck to you.

I really can't believe how expensive the seeds are on the market. Part of me hopes the prices come down but the other part hopes they stay high so we can eventually sell a few and make a profit.

I understand. Those prices make it tempting to sell, but right now everything has to go back into our garden. I wasn't expecting those results this early, so I am scrambling to study our next plants. I got kicked off last night before I could get anything done.

I have all my study sheets and garden diagrams in front of me. lol

lol, I know what you mean, the market is so up and down though.

The nice thing is that the gardening system should be harder to 'bot' than shard farming for example, so the sellers should all be humans, which I hope will make the market more stable in the long run.

Awesome! I am so happy for you guys!

We were able to get our anise seeds yesterday (our success for the moment) and one of our steps toward our major goals. It is so much fun!

All for a minion that will be "Ever ready to shield your buttocks from the hardest of places". Can't wait to see that! Then we can get started on growing the stuff for my magical broom!

Lol...I know. It is kinda funny, but still. That pillow looks awesome.

We have gotten as far as the jute and broom bush and are working on kukurus, so glazenuts aren't too far away.
