    Harvest from sunsong ranch more than once a day?

    I notice that the Patch 5.1 PTR Notes have the following change about the sunsong ranch:
    Growing crops now display the duration until the crop is ready to harvest.
    And I saw a thread that said the duration until harvest is 6 hours whenever you plant the seed. If that is ture, we will be able to harvest from sunsong ranch more than 3 times a day.

    Can anybody confirm this on the PTR realm?
    Thank you.

    Doubt it. The person in the thread probably just planted them six hours before midnight, server time (aka around 6 pm).

    Edit: I often plant my crops at 11:50 pm, then harvest them at 12:00 am — doesn't mean they only take ten minutes to grow.

    would be good if we could. 24H is too long time for crops. imo it should be 8h

    Yeah, and we shouldn't be allowed to play our characters 8 hrs a day because they are sleeping.
    One day is fine for crops, it's basically 3 free SoH every 2 days. Besides, I couldn't bear the thought of clearing my crops to growing stage 3 times a day every day.

    What do you think your character is doing while you're logged off? Catching up with it's sleep deprivation you selfishly have caused.

    Dear god, no. I couldn't stand logging in 3x per day planting 16 songbell seed and then removing crap from all of them. I think I've yet to see a songbell which just grows normally.
    If they would make me do this three times per day, I'd rather burn down farmer yoons ranch instead.

    Since I can only make premades on the PTR I can only plant veggies, it looks like they only take 2 hours to grow now. The rare seeds may take longer. Can't check since they never fixed the character copy issue.

    Haha, I haven't even planted any songbell for a week now. Feel so relieved not having to clear them.

    Hope not, it's already pretty tedious to do it once a day.

    This, especially when I get like 6 of those damn tentacles.

    Imo they should add more things like the water and pest repellent at exalted, that get rid of all of the plant problems.

    There is a disturbing lack of self restraint hidden within this comment. If you don't like doing it, don't do it. Nobody is making you do anything.

    actually it does ... (irrespective of the fact that you can only harvest once per 24h cycle though)

    This right here. It follows the same rules as using crafting CDs or transmutes. If you planted and tended all your crops so they are listed as "growing (insert name)" at 11:59, they will be ripe and ready to harvest at 12:00.

    There's no such thing as a crop that grows normally, every single one is bad (and half of them are guaranteed to be birds, rabbits or wild vines)...unrealistic and downright pathetic IMO.

    I'd prefer it if they sync'd up harvest time with the daily reset. Jogu's prediction sync'ing up with the reset but not midnight confuses people.

    Although the ability to double-dip is nice when it's a crop you really want.

    Bursting!

    ... it's only a 1% chance, but still.

    Right because a vegetable growing from seed to harvest in 24hours just sets the precedence for realism.

    OT: Cooking mat seeds should take 6-12 hours to grow and specialty seeds should take 12-24 hours to grow.
