Stages of a Garden Pot

Gardening Purity

Three factors influence Gardening Purity. The Purity of the Humus icon.png Humus, the Purity of the Plant, and the Purity of the Gardening Pot icon.png Gardening Pot. The Harvested Plant will be the average Purity of these three factors weighted towards the Humus. The formula is: Resulting Plant = ((Humus*2)+Pot+Initial Plant)/4. Any time the Resulting Plant's Purity is higher than the Gardening Pot's, the Gardening Pot's Purity will permanently increase by up to 2.56%. You may check your Gardening Pot's Purity by right-clicking it.


A Gardening Pot icon.png Gardening Pot can't be Destroyed by normal means, Pests can instead be applied to Gardening Pots by selecting a Pest and right-clicking it on the Gardening Pot. Each Pest added will reduce the Gardening Pot's Purity until it reaches reaches 0, then each additional Pest will do damage instead, at 100% damage the Gardening Pot will break.
