Hibernate Plant Growth?

Dear KI,

Can you please add a feature to allow us to "hibernate" a plant's growth. Many of us love the looks of the plants and want to have them around as decorations, especially in the large MB greenhouse! But they don't last very long. Once they grow and reach elder you harvest and they are gone. For some this can be as short as a day. We don't get to enjoy the fully grown plant very long.

Can we add a feature to pause a plants development? It would stay in stasis (still move with animations/sounds) and wouldn't be harvestable. Please!!!

Either way, again, thanks for this new element. It is quite fun and enjoyable!

Remove all their likes and they will grow slower. Again, you will have to replant...I would suggest Dandilions, as they usually give you more seeds.

I like this idea. It would also be great for the times when you can't check up on your plants. Sort of like a vacation mode.

I think the better solution to this would be to decrease a plant's growth and needs rate when not planted around other plants. The closer plants are planted together the faster they could be allowed to grow and the more likely the would become to use energy, but area of effect spells would help care for them. Plants that are seperated could take quite awhile to grow, but players could then plant a few together and remove the others after the plant they desire to keep in an area for decoration matures.

I agree that for some people who have busy lives, that a vacation mode would be good. However, if you want the plant for just decoration, then why not put in a copy of the plant as a decoration item. There are flower beds, and even some single flowers like the lotus flower. So just make it a housing item that can be gotten through drop/reward/bought.
