People are always complaining about how when you go on a trip away from computers, all of your plants die. I think KI should create a free app for smartphones that lets you take care of your plants on Wifi or data. It could show all of your plants, all of your gardening spells and how much energy you have. That way you could take your garden with you .

This is a great idea... or if KI doesn't want to do that, they should make a spell that keeps your plants happy for a day, week, etc. The only problem i see, is that since the plants are in your house, it may require for them to let you be in your house too. If this happens, then people may wonder why the app can't be multiplayer. I can see it snowballing. Great ideas though!

Plant needs are event driven based on you arriving at your house. If you take care of all plant needs at a house, then leave quickly before any new needs arise you can stay away for as long as you like. Weeks or months. New needs will not be activated until you return to your house. Just don't revisit your house unless you have enough energy to satisfy all the needs again.

Excellent idea. I would gladly pay for an app like this and im sure many others would as well.

I don't ever recall this being true for me, but maybe I'm mistaken. KI, is this how it works?

You can be well assured that my previous post regarding gardening is correct. You must ensure that ALL plant needs for a given house are taken care of before leaving. Note that the inside of a house is treated separately from the outside. If you accidently visit a house then leave the plant needs will be triggered again. So it's a good idea to have a designated general purpose non-gardening house for general use (storing stuff, crafting, porting to/from, etc).

I use my old Tranquile Cottage as a general purpose house. It's my primary house. Then I set up crafted portals nicely organized for quick and easy movement to my other houses. Because I rotate between my gardening houses I place a piece of junk at the base of the portal I am about to go through and garden. This acts as a token reminding me next time which house garden was the last one I visited. For nice flexibility place return portals at each house so you can easily return go your primary house.

Never visit a gardening house if you don't have sufficient energy to take care of all plant needs.

Thank you for saying that. I did not know that. Thank you so much.
