A limpwurt seed is a seed used in the Farming skill. They can be planted in a flower patch and require level 26 Farming. They take 20 minutes to grow, and when fully grown, the harvest is three Limpwurt roots. Reaching the Practiced farmer rank in Manor Farm will double all limpwurt root yields.
A nearby gardener will not watch over your limpwurt roots.
Limpwurt seeds are dropped by many monsters, or bought from the Vinesweeper minigame for 70 points each. They can also be obtained by pickpocketing Master Farmers or Martin the Master Gardener. There is also a chance of getting them from a bird's nest.
By far these are one of the most valuable of the standard flower seeds but seem prone to disease. Remembering to add Compost or Supercompost to the flower patch before planting will help to avert disease. Interestingly, the limpwurt plant is brown when healthy and bright green when diseased.
Harvesting limpwurts in the patch near Port Phasmatys is an easy task for the Morytania task set. Harvesting them in the Western Ruins is also a hard task for the wilderness task set.
