MYSTERY SEEDS can be purchased in the store for $1 pot buck each. (See below for other ways to get them for FREE.) They take 3 minutes to grow, give 4 xp for planting, and randomly give either one of the premium items listed below, OR an ordinary plant from the main seed chart.
There are even a few items in the game that generate Mystery Seeds. You can see them all on the Repeaters Page.
JACKPOT SEEDS have better odds of giving premium seeds compared to Mystery Seeds. Jackpot seeds are purchased in the store for $3 pot bucks each.
They have a 3 minute grow time just like mystery seeds. Protection is -3 while growing. Then, you get whatever protection the mystery seed you've grown offers (shown in chart below).
People seem to think they should be getting dollar for dollar what they put into it, but completely forget that you get some HUGE awards for harvesting the premium plants. (We're talking 5 MILLION COINS for your first 3 bacon plants.) The others plants have some awesome rewards too. See details on my Awards Page.
SNACKPOT SEEDS were added August 13, 2013. They grow only premium (munchie) seeds that sell for at least $1 pot buck. They're in the store for 2 facebook credits each. These have a 3 minute grow time. Protection is ? while growing. Then, you get whatever protection the seed you've grown offers (shown in chart below). (Pot Farm's announcement.)
POTLUCK SEEDS were added March 1, 2013. They grow ONLY premium (munchie) seeds that sell for at least $4 pot bucks. Potluck seeds are available randomly from the Barfing Dragon contraption (you get either surprise seeds or potluck seeds). They are also occasionally available in the store.. These have a 1 hour grow time. Protection is ? while growing. Then, you get whatever protection the seed you've grown offers (shown in chart below).
HASH MIXES were added August 6, 2012, and are under the seed tab in the store. They all have a 12 hour grow time and randomly grow one of the following 4 plants:
The Blonde Hash Mix gives a better chance than the other mixes of growing Acapulco Gold.
The Red Hash Mix gives a better chance than the other mixes of growing Panama Red.
The Black Hash Mix gives a better chance than the other mixes of growing Black Widow.
Protection: Indicates protection this plant will offer when fully grown.
Harvest XP: XP earned when you harvest this plant.
Yield: This is the number of plants, jelly beans, bacon, etc. that you receive when harvesting ONE of these.
Total Sale Price: Since all of these plants sell for $1 pot buck each, the total sale price is equal to the yield. (For example, Bacon Trees give 12 bacon that sell for $1 pot buck each, so it's listed as a total sale price of $12 pot bucks.)
Cost per protection: This isn't truly cost. It's what you would get for harvesting divided by amount of protection you would have if you didn't harvest. (You can keep the Bacon Tree and have 25 protection or sell it and get $12 pot bucks. That a "cost" of $0.60 per protection.)
Sharing when you harvest premium seeds:
When you harvest one of the premium seeds listed in the chart below, you'll get a pop-up with the option of offering mystery seeds to your friends. (You'll only get this option once per seed per session. So, if you want to share more than once per type of plant, you'll need to reload the game before harvesting again so you get the pop-up to share again.) The first 5 of your friends to click the link on the post will get a free mystery seed of their own.)
If you click the AUTO PUBLISH button in the lower right corner of the game (the Facebook "F"), it will ask for your permission to auto-post to your wall. This can change how you post mystery seeds and other sharable items. You will get the initial pop-up asking if you want to share your mystery seed, but not the second one. This can be easier and some people prefer this.
To turn off auto-posting, go to your profile page. Click on "Account" in the upper right. From the drop-down menu, select "Privacy Settings." On the Privacy page, go to the lower left corner and select "Edit your settings" under Applications and Websites. Find Pot Farm and click on it. Find the option for "Post on my Behalf" and click remove. This should put things back to normal.
Collecting Mystery Seeds (and limits): You can collect free Mystery Seeds from your friends posts. You can find these these posts on their wall or on your Facebook news feed.
As of Sept 10, 2013, mystery seed collection limits are divided into just two groups, "common" and "uncommon" (rare). You can collect 50 from each of these two sources per day. See the chart below to see which sources are common and which are uncommon/rare. (Note: The mystery seeds you get are the same no matter which source you get them from.)
For limits on other types of newsfeed posts, see info on the PFI INFO PAGE.
NOTE: Just because your friend got a bacon tree, posted the mystery seed, and you were fast enough to score one DOES NOT mean that your mystery seed will also grow into a bacon tree. Mystery seeds are called "MYSTERY" seeds for a reason and their output varies.
Mystery Seed Feedback: Here's an example of the notice you get when you claim a mystery seed. Messages like this show how many Mystery Seeds we have claimed off of the two kinds of plant posts (common and uncommon/rare as shown in the chart below.) Limits reset at 10pm pacific time each day.
MYSTERY SEED COLLECTION LIMITS AS OF SEPT 10, 2013
"Daily Limit" Number you can collect per day
"Claim Limit" This many players can collect from any of these posts
HUGE AWARDS: We get some HUGE awards for growing premium mystery seeds (such as 5,000,000 coins for growing just 3 bacon trees!) See my AWARDS page for complete details.
Remember when we could identify a plant during it's grow cycle?
(The devs made them all the same to make the game run smoother.)
