Description

Mashuu-Ajuu (k-6) wants you help with his horticultural homework assignment. He asks that you use "Herb Seeds" to grow something that will impress his classmates, such as a "Sobbing Fungus." and gives you a bag of herb seeds.

You go buy a flower pot, and plant the seeds, in about 3 days real time you have a plant.

I couldn't grow sobbing fungus, I grew ice crystals with the bag that he gave me, so I went to the AH and bought some Sobbing Fungus for 500gil.

Well when I returned to him and gave him the sobbing fungus he replied with. "Humph! You only brought me what I asked for... I guess it would have been expecting too much for anything more than that, huh? Stick to adventuring next time..." and gave me 500 gil and a "Stationery Set." which is a furnishing for my apartment. (identified as "A Bastokan stationery set."

If you grow him a Deathball he will give you 700 gil.

Stationary Set is Exclusive . You cannot buy this at the Auction House. It cannot be traded to you. This quest has no level minimum. It may have a level maximum, or cap, of fame 2-4. If you do not complete this quest before Windhurst fame 2-4, you may -never- be able to obtain the Stationary set. Your results may vary.
Data: (more testing required) Bastok resident with Windhurst fame 4, level 25, unable to get quest. Windhurst resident, no fame, level 1, got the quest.
Examples of other quests with level caps are:
Bastok Markets: The Signpost Marks the Spot, Father Figure.
You can of course buy Scop's Operetta at the AH.



Multiple edits are my sig. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

If you have done Teachers Pet, or started Let sleeping dogs lie quest, You probably wont be able to get this quest.

I believe Let Sleeping Dogs Lie event is triggered by Teacher's Pet. If you've done Teachers Pet quest, you cannot get the quest with Mashuu-Ajuu for stationary. If you haven't done Teachers Pet quest, you can. If you HAVE done Teachers Pet, follow through with Let Sleeping Dogs Lie quest, zone, and if you have rank 4+ Fame in Windy, you will recieve the quest from Mashuu.

Might wanna edit the infortmation concerning all three Quests, Alla.

quick note on gardening, its gotta b a randomizer. I've had 6 mules growing for about 8 months now every kinda pot and plant every combination. From cactus to seeds to arcane pots. Planted and crystalized just the same. 9 times out of 10 different results. You can minimize the bads but never eliminate them. Nor can you predict results.

After I fed the seeds a fire crystal, and all I grew were hot peppers, I bought a deathball at the auction house and he didn't seem to notice. I didn't get a full return on the 1000 gil I spent, but I did get a tedious quest done.

I bought a deathball from the AH and gave it too the kid and he seemed pleased by getting one despite the fact that I had not actually grown it. In fact he didn't seem to notice. Good thing I removed the exp date lol.

True, I didn't get the full return for the $1000 gil I paid, but it did finish a tedious quest and I had tried to grow one with the seeds he gave me and a fire crystal, but all I got were hot peppers.

For all of you having a hard time gardening, you really should get the spring edition of the statagy guides in your book stores. It gives a full list of everything you can grow and how to grow it. For those trying to make Sobbing fungi out of Herb seeds with a dark crystal... it's not going to happen. The crystal you feed it is more important than anything else.

Herb seeds + dark = Light crystals, Black Rock, Deathball, OR Amaryllis only

If you want to make sobbing fungi you have to use a lighting crystal ..I've done it three times and it works. These are the possible things you can get from it.

Herb seeds + lightning = Water crystals, Sobbing Fungi, OR Mhaura Garlic only

Maybe the day of the week, or the type of pot how everyone is talking about factor into which one of the three or four come out but it's the crystal used that decide which group of items might come out. Hope that help, and for the full three page list, go get that Strat guide ; )

I once repeated this quest many times. That was a couple months ago at least. I bought a bunch of fungi today, and a deathball, but he no longer seems interested in anything. Do you eventually lose this quest when your fame gets higher, like the ring quest in Bastok?

I was determined to garden this baby and decided that death is dark so lets go completely dark. I planted herb seeds on darksday, fed a dark crystal on darksday and then harvested on darksday. I used 5 brasspots. I ended up with 2 black rocks 10 amarylises (sp?) and tada Smiley: yippee 1 deathball. Hope this helps. It's still luck with 1/5 success but it's something.

Does anyone know if u get alot more fame for bringing the deathball instead of the sobbing fungus??
Deathballs are 1k at AH on Ifrit and sobbing is 500
so if i get the same fame for both items i rather raise my fame a bit with sobbing fungus cause it makes me brake even ;)

I've done this quest for a couple of characters and have not noticed a difference in the amount of fame this gives between the deathball and sobbing fungus, so if there is a difference it's very very slight.

heres what I did
# Feb 25 2004 at 9:57 AM Rating: Excellent
I did herb seeds, feed a dark crystal and got a deathball, He gave me 700 gil and the stationary set, I did hear someone had bought the stuff and brough it too him, he wasnt too thrilled, I have another one growing to see what else I can get. didn't really care about the gil, but if you want to cost it, earthen pot costs about 900, seed he will give you, you can pick up the dark crystal from the mad fox that spawns in E. Saru next to the canyon, he always drops a dark crystal. Okay, now if you have a hard time getting 900gil for the pot together, the teacher's pet is repeatable, and required before you can do this quest, and it gives you 250 gil a pop, just have to do it 4 time, or that quest with a couple of others. The stationary set I also think looks kinda neat. if you just do this quest twice it will pay for the flower pot and you can do other things with it afterwards. Dark crystal slows down the growth of herb seeds so it does take 3 days to do.

I see that some of you say "sobbing fungus" is a rare grow... but seems that it's pretty easy to me... this is how it went: i've tried to grow some with the herbal seeds that i loot off saplings, and because of trying to train my char in Valkrum Dunes, i've come to neglect the plants time and time again... seems that i always missed the crystal feeding time... but funny thing is, i'm always just in time for harversting(?!) and i got 4 sobbing fungus off those two bags of herbal seeds... might be a coincidence?

this quest is repeatable as long as you zone everytime, which isnt hard because the zone point for another part of the city is right there by the mog house entrance and for rambling windy its a short distance away.
i bought a stack of sobbing fungus for 3k and he pays 6k for 12..nice 3k profit and fame as well.
i was able to buy 1 deathball in san,d for 200gil, again 500 gil profit,...deathballs seem hard to come by.
if you dont mind spending the time, this is a very nice repeatable which actually pays off

oooooh! I need to VENT!

I did this quest finally.. Started out with one pot, ended up with 5. Went through 2 growing cycles with a few. After 2 weeks I finally got my Sobbing Fungus today!

BUT (this burns me up) I hand it in to Mashuu and he feeds me this line:
Hmph! you only brought me what i asked for ..etc..etc....(see top of page) HOW INSULTING!

I feel ripped off! I worked hard to grow this and I think I have just been accused of cheating -(when Mashuu himself is the one who is cheating, I would like to add!) He thinks I strolled over to the AH for it I guess!

hehe ok.. maybe this is just the normal response but jeesh it was pretty insulting! I worked hard to make that for him and was sooooo excited when I finally grew it! :p

he didn't accuse you of cheating. he said "you only brought me what i asked for"

that means you grew exactly what he said he wanted you to grow, instead of growing something spectacular like a deathball.

if he was accusing you of cheating he would have said "you just BOUGHT me". "brought" and "bought" is not the same thing, though very easily confused.

I grew a crystal with the seeds he gave me, but when I planted some herb seeds I got off a sapling, I actually wound up growing a "Deathball," so I figured I'd take it to the little fella and see what he said. I got a very favorable response:

"Wow! Well done! What kind of crystal did you feed it to grow something like this? I might even be able to beat Kirarara with this. You deserve every gil of your reward!"

Then he gave me 700 gil and the stationary set. So I guess the response the other folks got was implying that he wanted you to bring something impressive, and gave Sobbing Fungus as an example. Maybe anything that you take him from an herb seed planting works? (with perhaps even more gil for other items?)

Any thoughts?

After completing this quest, you can place the Stationary Set that you get as a reward in your mog house (it is furniture).

After the Stationary Set has been in your mog house for approximately one week (earth time), your moogle will tell you that he wrote a song for you using the Stationary Set, and you will receive a scroll of Scop's Operetta (Bard song).

This quest is repeatable it seems - if you go back to him later, he says he's requesting your help again (though he doesn't give you any more herb seeds). I only gave him a sobbing fungus the first time so I don't know if giving him anything else would affect being able to repeat it.

I have not yet had time to grow another fungus (or anything else) so I'm not sure what his next reward will be.

To correct the below posts, it's called a Deathball not a deathshroom =P

Payed 700 on auction house for it (sobbing fungus cost 900, so I went with the deathball).

Deathball was 900 gil at auction house. I was mislead by the quest description to think he would give an additional 700 gil for the deathball. Additional being over the 500 gil for the sobbing fungus. For a total of 1200 gil. No, I just recieved 700 gil, so I lost 200 gil. But I got a stationary set. Never checked sobbing fungus price.

I've been experimenting with planting quite a bit. (have a garden of 7 pots right now) I am not ready to post all the results but I will say this, the type of pot also determines what you get. I have brass, ceramic, and earthen and get different results from each.
And to the person who asked how to use crystals...it's an option that comes up after a couple days.
To the person whose plants wilted...you much examine your plants often. The more you examine them, the healthier and faster they grow. If you go on a long trip, and cannot examine them, they will die. Hope that helps.

Using Deathshroom

I bought one of the Deathshrooms from the auction house and gave it to the kid. He was thrilled saying he might just be able to beat the class pet with it.

His payment for me was 700gil and the stationary set. The shroom purchased was only about 500 so I got a 200gil profit.
When to use Crystals?
# Nov 22 2003 at 6:26 PM Rating: Default
When do you use the Crystal on the Plants? BEFORE you plant them? or is there an option when it's "ready"?

I tried growing the plant from the herb seeds, by the 2nd game day it was growing nicely. I was away for 1 Real Day (about 36 hours), and when I came back, the plant was wilted! :(

I never found an option to use a Crystal on it in the "Gardening" Tab via Moogle.

Help?

The option probably was available while you were gone, so by the time you got back it was too late.

I used a fire crystal and grew a whole bunch of Kazaam Peppers, but the kid wouldn't take them. Next batch with a water crystal grew fire crystals. Growing it now with a Dark Crystal. I'm hoping that there's something he's looking for that's better than a Sobbing Fungus...

Well, i've got 4 pots of herbs going to use lightning on all 4, see if they pop out the same thing. If they do, means it's probably the moon. If they don't, probably random chance.

I placed the stationary set this guy gives you in my mog house. A few days later, out of the blue, when I go to talk to my mog, he's all happy to see me. Seems he wrote me a song to remember him by, 'cause he missed me. Lvl 19 bard song. Thought it was cute ;)
