Sorry for the new thread but i wanted a place for tree sapling info that wouldn't get burried under the plat nugget recipe 20 times. (tree cutting light/light, everybody knows, stop posting it) Anyway, i harvested my first sapling today.

Brass pot
Tree Sapling
planted on firesday
fed fire/fire both on firesday
Harvested on earthsday (logged in an hour too late this mornign and didn't want to wait any longer)
Results were: 32 cinnamon sticks.

I was just happy it didn't turn into worms or rocksalt like my cactus.

I wonder what you get when you use a dark crystal?
also, i had read somewhere before that you could grow gold beastcoins by using the same recipe as platinum only in a brass pot, can anyone confirm this?

I currently have two cactus and a tree cutting(which i hope to grow into a sapling) planted, so it will be awhile before i get another sapling planted. The one i grew already too a long time to bloom, but once it did i only had to wait about a day for the harvest to be ready (as opposed to the 3 days i had to wait for my cactus) But i do intend to continue experimenting with saplings. my next will probably be a lightning/lightning or a light/light.

Depends what level they are because it requires going logging in Yuhtunga Jungle. I ran around on my chicken like a chicken without a head for almost 15 minutes before I found a logging spot to get the Fallen Star.

So, I planted my saplings about a week ago (maybe a day or two more) and still haven't been prompted to fertilize them.. Anyone else had this experience? I've been checking them daily, and am positive that I haven't missed an opportunity yet (as it doesn't say Crystal Used: None)

I have 4 saplings currently planted, aiming for elemental ore (two geared towards dark ore, two towards ice ore)*holds breath*.

Took about a week for the first feeding to become available, and tonight will mark the second week (so hopefully another). I'll post results ^^

Yes, but that is not the only source of it. It can also be grown, and i've heard rummors that it can be dug up with chocobo. All of the sources of elemental ore are very rare.

yes, it takes a PAINFULLY long time for a sapling to grow, don't worry, eventually it will ask for a crystal. On the bright side, i think saplings look the coolest of any of the plants, (well after the stick phase atleast)

How do you get saplings out of tree cuttings and can you get other seeds from other plants too?

I remember reading a post some time ago that said you could get seeds of plants if you dry them...

Tree cuttings sometimes grow into sapplings if you don't feed them a crystal. So far it is the only source of tree sapplings i've heard of.

Drying plants does not give you seeds, but sometimes when plants die you'll get seeds back from the dead plant. To the best of my knowledge they are always the same as the seeds you planted.

Elemental ore comes from 3 sources: bcnm60, choco digging, and gardening. The gardening part was recently introduced, though, and that's why the price of ore has dropped so much on many servers. On my server there's one guy that bought 14 STACKS (at 250k/piece) of saplings. I was able to feed my saplings a second time friday night...so sometime this week I should know!

A couple of days ago i harvested the the cuttings i mentioned and they did indeed grow into a tree sapling. I fed it none/none. It took about 2 weeks. i imediatly replanted the sapling and it is growing well. i also have 2 more cuttings i'm going right now, one is past the first crystal and the other is almost there. I plan to stagger them so that i have a weekly tree cutting harvest, i'll be planting two more cuttings to grow into saplings.

pharadox is right, the result wud be element ore. Check the AH to see how sells those ores and see also who buys tree sapling and you should figure that pharadox is right

Would you be willing to share what pot you used for the Cuttings -> Saplings? I would really appreciate it :)

Also..Won't the plant just die if you don't feed it any crystals?

If you want to get a successful ELEMENTAL ore yield, it's best to plant in a porcelain pot. When you plant/harvest(attribute of day) doesn't matter, just make sure you feed it with crystals opposite to the day's attribute. Overnutrition will ruin the plant.

Cheers

Using an Earthen pot and NO crystals, I was able to get 2 tree saplings from one cutting! Don't ask me how I did that because I have no clue. My other "blank" cuttings gave me one cutting in a Ceramic Pot. Your plant will not die without crystals as long as you keep examining it. It does however, take much longer to grow with no crystal support.

I've got two saplings growing now and boy do they take FORever to ask for a crystal!

Well, I harvested all 4 saplings. They were set up like this:

Porcelain pot + Tree sapling, all planted at the same time. My plan was to gear 2 towards Ice Ore and 2 towards Dark Ore. Thus, when it came time to feed them, I fed them their respective crystals (Dark + Dark, Ice + Ice) when they were read to be fed (not necessarily on iceday or darksday, in fact it wasn't on those days). All 4 were harvested on the day of the ore I was trying to get. Results were...

Terrible. Dark plants gave me 17rock salt and 4persikos; Ice plants gave me 2 wind clusters each. 100k down the drain =(

edit: total time taken was roughly 20 days from planting to harvesting.

But, I guess that's the way it will always go. 20 days sure is a long time!! I think once my little bundle of joy arrives I'll retire to just gardening and farming. Won't that be fun! ^^

Hojoo can you explain me what will make the difference between having a ice ore or a wind ore (ice and wind use only as example) using your theory.


Thanks!

Well after weeeks of waiting for my saplings to sprout i got alot of crap - basicaly lost LOTS of gil 8.[...

all 10 in procelain pots
all planted on light day 90%full moon
1-fire + fire (fire day)= 32 cinnamon
2-nothing + fire (fire day)= 36 cinnamon
3-light + light = 12 rock salt
4-nothing + light (light day) = 4 light crystals ><
5-light + light = 14 gold leaves
6-dark + dark = 3 cuttings !!!!! <=== @_@ (wtf)
7-nothing + nothing = 12 gold leaves
8-ice + ice(ice day) = 4 plat leaves
9-wind + light = crappy feathers ><
10- lighting (lightng day) + nothing = 14 silver leaves

if these leaves EVER sell i might have only ~100-50k loss
/cry
i am going back to normal plants - i cant afford to spend 300k and 2 months for an or that is now at 500k but will soon drop to 300k - and STILL not have much of a chance at getting one - from what i have read you have about a 1 in 15 chance of getting an ore no matter how perfect you plant - and if you pland crappy (wind+light good example) you get no chance.

(ps - the planting nothing on specific times was a planned and known strategy)

My garden seems to defy the information out there. I did NOT use a Porcelain Pot, I did NOT feed the opposite element, and my Ice/Ice in Ceramic Pot tree sapling gave me a nice $$chunk of ice ore$$ when I harvested it yesterday. ^^

my 3rd tree i will probably go water/water or earth/earth, any suggestions on what day i should feed the crystals on?

you sure you don't mean leaves? Tree saplings seem to grow leaves not nuggets. Or maybe you're talking about cuttings.

Another "successful" harvest to report.

Tree sapling
fed earth/earth both on lightningday
harvested on light day

results: 9 Kitron (lemons)

I did some digging, and what i've found out so far is i need to do more digging. other than cursed drink, i haven't found a recipe that uses these, and i have no idea what cursed drink is for. -.-, but it sounds expensive, no of these kitrons had ever been sold in bastok, so if anybody could give me an idea of their worth, i'd greatly appreciate it.

Well here i am finding myself in the limbo known as ... wiat for it ... server maintenence ><. Well anyway about 3 days ago i got really ambitious lol listen to this i have 20 brass flower pots growing cuttings (planted on iceday, yes i have a mule :P) gonna feed them none/none. hopefully get 20 tree saplings to grow. i am gonna plant on darks day feed dark/dark on darks day and harvest on darksday. So if i get any ores i will share my results when it happens but that is a long way down the pipeline. If i get one or more dark ore i will be able to post a percentage yeild. anyway i have nothing else better to do i farmed all my cuttings growing all my own saplings farming all my own dark crystals. so if this tanks its nothing big my only loss will be 20k in flower pots that i can sell at AH for a profit actually so oh well. i will keep you poseted on how many saplings i get from 20 cutting and what those saplings turn out to be.. or maybe i will do 10 light/light saplings and 10 dark/dark saplings tell me what you think guys :P

You might want to be careful with too much of one element. all 4 of my cacti turned out badly using the "all the same" element aproach. since i switched to saplings i've avoided overloading, and haven't gotten any worms or rocksalt. from what i've read here an on other threads, you should try feeding the crystal on an opposite day, (ie, light crystal on darksday).

I went to jueno to check the price of my lemons, they're 10k each, (^.^) or, they're 10k for a stack (-.-) so i put a few up for 5k each, and we'll see how they sell.

So, a summary of my results so far:
fire/fire...........cinnamon
light/light.........gold leaves
earth/earth.........Kitrons

i currently have a dark/dark that i just fed its 2nd crystal to, so expect another update next week.

This is purely theoretical because I only have ONE experiment to base it on, but it's possible that the ores require lots of strength in order to produce ore. I planted and fed my ice crystals on days that ice is strong on.
#50chukwan, Posted: Apr 28 2004 at 11:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I dont know if u guys knew this or not. But gardening do have lvl. You have to level your gardening skill by planting lots of stuff. And dont think of getting Ore in all the plants. At high lvl gardening. you normally get 6-7 Ores from 50 plants.

Let me be the first to tell everyone what an idiot chukwan is.

1. No such thing as leveling Gardening. You can and will get the same results the first time as the 100000th time. It's random.

2. Those are not the best recipes to get ore.

If you don't know, or are tossing out some "theory," say so. Stop posting like it's a fact. It's quite the opposite.
