Gardening Recipes/Herb Seeds

Herb seeds in bloom, in an Arcane Flowerpot

A herb is a plant grown for culinary, medicinal, or in some cases even spiritual value. The green leaves are typically the portion of the plant that is harvested. While mostly used differently between culinary herbs and medicinal herbs, sometimes the two come together, making delicious culinary delights with medicinal properties.

By contrast, spices are the seeds, berries, bark, root, or other parts of the plant, (sometimes leaves}; although any of these, as well as any edible fruits or vegetables, may be considered "herbs" in medicinal use. Culinary herbs distinguish themselves from vegetables in that they are used in pinches and provide flavor rather than substance to food.

Herb Seeds take about 4-5 real life days to grow between planting and harvesting. This time can vary depending on which pot they are planted in and whether or not a crystal is fed.

Herb seeds' growing time is approximately four to five Earth days, and the Vana'diel moon cycle is approximately three days; to harvest near the full moon, for example, plant an Earth day or two after Vana'diel full moon. Herb seeds are thought to have a wind elemental affinity.

Following are the possible results when planting Herb Seeds. Results will vary depending on many variables, the following chart will show the commonly accepted "recipes". For now, the list is by no means complete, so please add any results you find yourself.
