Garden FAQ & Reservation  (Read 1510 times)

Outrack
This thread is to provide information on our gardening system, and to keep track of what's been planted to avoid any potential confusion. Even though we have a small community, we only have 16 slots available to plant crops so I believe it would be fair to ask players to reserve slots so that everyone gets a chance to plant what they want!

If you'd like to plant seeds, please post a message in this thread or contact Faintning Aleidian in-game as she's currently in charge of our garden.

Gardening Guide

To get started, you'll need seeds and soil. There are three different types of soil with three varying grades that produce better results (grade 3 being the best), though the type of soil will influence the type of harvest - La Noscean Topsoil will increase the chances of a HQ harvest, Shroud Topsoil increases the garden yield, while Thanalan Topsoil will promote crossbreeding between seeds which will be explained later on.

Once you've planted your seed/s, you'll need to then tend to it to ensure you don't lose your crop - though Faint and other players tend to the crops frequently, you may want to pitch in yourself to make sure everything's going smoothly and help everyone out. The amount of time it takes for crops to fully mature depends on each crop, though you can speed up the process by using Fertiliser - Fishmeal is inexpensive and reduces the overall time by an hour with each use, so grab a couple off an NPC.

Crossbreeding

Crossbreeding is a method of obtaining rare seeds by planting two different types of plants beside each other, which may produce an otherwise unobtainable item or seed. Though the system is fairly basic, the results you can get from mixing-and-matching various seeds are extensive - fortunately there's a list of possible results up on Google Docs here and a planner on the FFXIVGardening.com website here that will help in making sure you get exactly with as little wasted time/gil as possible.

Efficiency & Planning

While we could just toss in any random seeds we get, I think it would be more beneficial to get organised and maximise the potential for our guild. Personally, I think we should dedicate one garden to crossbreeding while the other is kept for general growing purposes, and our priority should be on planting things that would be the most useful to our members such as Chocobo feed, and that a portion of our FC funds are used to ensure the best possible upkeep (such as getting Grade 3 Thanalan Topsoil for crossbreeding and starting seeds). This is of course open for debate so please let us know if you have any comments or inquiries on how we should handle this :smile:

* this guide is a work-in-progress and will be expanded on at a later stage

Notification's a bit late, but I bought a bunch of Chamomile and Krakka to help Scrib out and planted it in the second bed. Needed to withdraw 80k from the FC chest to get enough Grade 3 soil and will replace it together with profits (hopefully) - we really need to get soil ourselves as it's stupidly expensive.

Also harvested two lots of Krakka in beds 1 and 2, and put them in the chest (3rd page).

Just positing notification that I've harvested two lots of Krakka Root (36) and put them on page 2 of the FC chest.

I've also just withdrawn 144,015 gil from the FC chest to purchase 8x Grade 3 Thanalan Topsoil for crossbreeding, and filled the second bed with Krakka/Chamomile again for Curiel Root Seeds. They sell for at least 80k each on the MB so just getting two would recover the costs - I'll of course put all profit from the sales into the chest once they're ready and sold :smile:

Updated the patch info, and added a section for garden reservation if any of you would like to grow something.

Right now we're pretty lax on rules, so I'll just ask that everyone making use of the garden use Grade 3 soil and be considerate of others that may want to use it as well :smile:

So, this last days I donated:

Wizard Eggplant x5,
Chamomile x5,
Midland Cabbage x7,
Pixie Plum x1,
Krakka Root x5,
Paprika x1,
La Noscean Lettuce x4,
Ala Mhigan Mustard x1,
La Noscean Orange x2,
Mandrake x1,
Garlic Cloves x2,
Black Pepper x1,
Popoto x1,
Millioncorn x1,
and some random seeds I had in the retainers.

Hope it is worth it, at least to sell them and get some extra money to the FC !  :smile:

In my retainers I have x2 of each: Xelphatol Apple, Doman Plum, Mamook Pear, O'Ghomoro Berries and Valfruit so if in the future is needed just ask and I can plant them (they are untradable).

I gave x1 Thanalan Topsoil Grade 3 for crossbreeding the seeds I asked help for. Still will try to get more.

I will try to donate more seeds in some days !! Thanks for the help  :love:

Thanks so much for the donation Lena!

Lena's Krakka Root seeds were ready, yielding the following:
  • 36x Krakka Root
  • 2x Wizard Eggplant Seeds
  • 1x Tantalplant Seeds
Instead of planting the Tantalplant immediately, I'm going to see if we can get more of them and have planted four more Krakka Root Seeds between the Wizard Eggplant's still growing to see if they'll yield anything. Can't get a definite answer on whether the seeds need to all be planted at the same time so this is kind of an experiment for me, so I've paid for the soil and seeds myself in case it doesn't work.

EDIT: So used to planting all 8 seeds together for crossbreeding that I wanted to hold out for more Tantalplant Seeds, but of course you can't crossbreed them with anything else so I went ahead and planted the single batch for Lena.

Got three Wizard Eggplant Seeds and one more Tantalplant from successful crossbreeding, and I've just harvested 18 Tantalplants for Lena and 18 Curiel Roots for myself.

I've lost track of how many Krakka/W. Eggplant seeds Lena's contributed though I think I've gone through her whole stockpile now, so I'll start crossbreeding the seeds she provided to get Pasana fruit now.

Sorry for the long post but this way everything is organised and cute !  :smile:

I hope this helps and if something is more needed than other seeds or soil just tell me or post here please, that way it's easier to me to gather specific things a little each week instead of blindly farm seeds!

And I still have x2 of each Xelphatol Apple, Doman Plum, Mamook Pear, O'Ghomoro Berries and Valfruit,  if needed!

Thanks !  :love:

Hm, I'm really not the type to get involved in gardening (I'll leave it to you, the pros), but is it possible we try to get some jute? Just in case you don't know what to grow next, haha. I don't need it urgently right now, but as a weaver I might need it at some point and it would be awesome to have some. It's only available by gardening, so I'd be much obliged.  :sweat2:
I also keep putting seeds in the chest, so that's my part of contributing to our garden.  :sparkle:

Yes of course Val! We will try to get you Jute but it may take a little while, still, we will do our best  :sparkle:

About the seeds you are getting to us, many thanks !

If you can (and want) do the same as I did, make a reply here about what you contribute to FC (seeds) so we can know what you get us  :smile:  or just send a moogle message to me and I register here or in some paper so you dont have the work to come here !  :love:
