Something needs to be changed. Unless I play every day, sometimes twice a day, by the time I come back to the game, all or most of my plants are dead. That means that if I want to garden at all, I have to make sure that I play every day. A lot of players are adults with responsibilities and cannot always find the time to play every day. It would be nice if the plant life-clock only ran while a player is logged on, so we don't feel obligated to play when we really don't have the time.
