  • Autocare - If the autocare checkbox is set in properties, when you click on a pot it will automatically be watered/fertilized to the optimum level.
  • Long Time Care - If this checkbox is set you will overwater and overfertilize the plants. Useful, if you can't care for your plants a longer period of time.
  • Auto fill/buy water/fertilizer. While at the water/fertilizer merchant you will see a highlight of which water/fertilizer PlantCare wishes to purchase based on the selected level. You can increase this level using the arrows at the bottom right of the vendor window. If you click on the Buy Water/Buy Fertilizer button, any existing stack of the same will be filled. If there are no existing stacks, or the existing stack is already full then you will purchase a whole new stack.
  • Auto-planting. Click on an empty pot to bring up the planting window. Then <CTRL> click on a seed in your backpack. That seed will automatically be planted in the currently selected pot. You may also <ALT> click on a seed in your backpack to permanently select that seed, then you can just repeatedly click on the various pots you wish to plant that seed in. If you have autocare turned on, that seed will also be automatically watered and fertilized. If you wish to select a different seed to auto-plant, simply <ALT> click on a new seed. To stop auto-planting, <ALT> click on the previously selected seed.
  • Status. To see the status of your plants, click on any pot then click the Show Info button near the bottom right of the planting window or enter /apc or /plantcareng in any chat window. You can click on any of the plants in the list to find out the details.
  • Warning. You can also set a value in the settings dialog by which the water and fertilizer level can fall below the optimum before you get a message that you should care for your plants

Wenn die Auto-Pflege eingeschaltet ist, werden die Samen anschließend automatisch gedüngt und gewässert. Um einen anderen Samen zu wählen, klicke einen anderen Samen mit <Alt> an. Wenn Du den gleichen Samen nochmal mit <Alt> anklickst, wird das automatische Pflanzen wieder deaktiviert.
  • Status: um den Status all Deiner Pflanzen einsehen zu können, klicke auf einen beliebigen Topf und anschließend auf den Info-Knopf unten rechts oder gibt /apc oder /plantcareng in ein beliebiges Chatfenster ein. Du kannst jede Pflanze anwählen und erfährst dann Details darüber.

    This *should* be fixed in the latest release. Please file a ticket on if it is not.

    I've been using PlantCare for a while now. I looked at Greenthumb, but it provides less information and doesn't provide tracking across logins.

    There are 2 things I'd like to see added to PlantCare to polish the addon.
    -Eliminate the watering/feeding spam similar to Greenthumb.
    -Don't treat ore plants differently from the rest in the PlantCare:calcCareCount funcion. Currently it doesn't provide enough water/soil to keep the plant healthy, and my ore plants steadily degrade while my other plants stay generally above 90% with the same care schedule. I went into the LUA and manually changed the true branch of the "if ( best == 90 )" statement to "best + 10" and now my ore plants are completely on par with my other plants.
  • #20
    #1 - The spamming of water/fertilizer messages has been fixed in the latest release.

    #2 - We are still working on refining these values.
  • #10
    Oh, and 5/5 for saving my carpal tunnels!
  • #4
    I love your AddOn. I especially love the info panel that tells/predicts what your alts planting levels are at. I made a small change to this screen which other users might find useful.

    On line 158 of the lua, I added a 3rd argument to how the item name is displayed:
    buttonItemName:SetText(string.format("[%d] %s (%d%%)", ,, (100*

    This makes it so that it shows the current growth rate on all your alts. It makes it easier to see the overall progress on your characters. Furthermore, this could be improved to add more specifics, such as estimate harvest time, current water/fertilizer rates, etc. without needing to click on each seed to see the details.

    Ie. (progress, water, fertilizer, harvest time)
    [1] Some Seed (45%, W80%, F80%, 9:00 28/09/09)
  • #5
    I didn't realized only refers to the last input of the grow rate and it wasn't a calculated value based on time that has past. Do you think this calculation can be made?
  • #6
    Ok, so I worked on this a bit, if anyone wants to have it themselves...

    It makes the info panel show names as:
    [Furniture slot] Seed Name (Current Growth, Current Fertilizer, Current Water)
    ie. [1] Some Seed (45%, 80%, 80%)

    On the PlantCare.lua, Line 154-ish (after the else):
    local buttonItemName = getglobal(button:GetName() .. "Item_ItemName")

    local currentTopdress = (os.time() -
    currentTopdress = currentTopdress*
    currentTopdress = - currentTopdress

    local currentWater = (os.time() -
    currentWater = currentWater*
    currentWater = - currentWater

    local currentGrow = ( + ((os.time() - * ((1 - / ( - * 100

    buttonItemName:SetText(string.format("[%d] %s (%d%%, %d%%, %d%%)",,, currentGrow, currentTopdress, currentWater))
  • #8
    And a big thanks for your feedback to the addons.
    I'll take a closer look at your code later, maybe i can use is too.
  • #7
    Serveral days ago i implemented exactly the same. I needed time (really rare at the moment) to test the functions, so the new version came so late.
  • #3
    Wie ich gesehen habe, habt Ihr meine Datenflut gut genutzt - Hut ab - echt geil! Paar sachen sollte man aber noch ändern bzw hinzufügen - is ja noch genug platz :)
    In der Auflistungsseite sowas wie Wieveiele Duedrops habe ich - wieviele (omg hab den Namen vergessen ... ) Spezial pflanzen also die für lvl 40 habe ich.

    usw ... Funkt mich einfach nochmal an :)

    btw. auto Bewässerung soll irgendwann nächsten Monat (ende) kommen ... wenn die Quelle zuverlässig ist ..... das weis man ja leider nie genau
  • #1
    Auto-planting isn't working.
  • #2
    You are right. Only works for few seeds. Will be fixed in the future. For now i updated the description ;)
