White Tiger and Amber, what do you need?

I am confused, the Professor stated White tiger lily had the best drop rate for Amber.
I have harvested over 20 of them, and not a single drop. I have also harvested Red Bell Pepper,
Red Huckleberries, and King Parsley with no a single Amber drop.
I have added what they like, hoping that would help the drop rate, but no luck at all.

I have seen a vid that says the drop rate is normally 1 in 5, but I'm 0 for all plants.
I have three level 8 farmers and one level 10 farmers, so they can all plant White tiger lilies now.

The question I have is, do I need to add something else, to get them to drop an Amber?
Do I need to reach a certain number of plants that I have harvested, before they start dropping?

Anyone have any idea, as I'm thinking of just quitting crafting spells completely now.
After almost a 100 and no amber, just doesn't seem right to me at all.
If I have to plant and harvest 1000 of plants or more to get 12 amber, it's not really worth it for anyone.

I have to say, this is the first thing in W101 that I find is just not right, out of a 100 you should at least get a few.

Did you plant orange dandelions, pink dandelions, or regular dandelions?

Do you have a potted cattail?

Do you have a blue ball of yarn?

Do you have the red barn farm?

Do you have a pixie on one of your plants?

Do you have a tropical garden gnome?

These are all the things that White Tiger Lillies like. Did you miss something?

I started harvesting White Tiger Lily with no luck. The same difficulty with Potent Trap and Agave Nectar. I've just about had enough of this game. I understand making it difficult, but I shouldn't have to spend weeks trying to get one ingredient to a recipe.

Drops of amber are random, but planting a plants "likes" will make it grow faster. So less time until it hits elder.
I ran KPs for my amber, and had 2 gardens of 32 each IIRC. It took a couple of months to get the needed amber, but King Parsleys at least dropped a seed at mature sometimes, so you can have large gardens very quickly.
WTL has a better drop rate, but I could never get enough to compare with the KPs.
I would suggest planting KPs with all their likes, including the crown item Bubbling Cauldron. You can farm it or buy it, I bought it.

answers.....

Did you plant orange dandelions, pink dandelions, or regular dandelions?
Yes.

Do you have a potted cattail?
No...

Do you have a blue ball of yarn?
No....

Do you have the red barn farm?
Yes.

Do you have a pixie on one of your plants?
Yes.

Do you have a tropical garden gnome?
Yes,

But I guess that none of that matters, as I just read Rottenhearts posting, and it
gave me a rotten feeling for gardens.....

He says he has 300 King Pars growing and only get two amber a week. Insane to me,
just insane, I don't need a spell that bad, no way. I would never spend that much of my time
putting sun and water on a plant, just totally, and absolutely insane I tell you......

These are all the things that White Tiger Lillies like. Did you miss something?
I would miss the time I wasted on something like this for sure......
I could never get that back......
