Poison Ivy bush

A poison ivy bush is grown by planting a poison ivy seed in a bush patch, requiring level 70 Farming. These grow in 2 hours and 40 minutes, granting the player 675 experience points from checking the health, and 45 experience points per berry picked. There is no need to pay a farmer to watch your poison ivy bush grow because "it is pretty hardy stuff, and most animals will avoid eating it." For this reason, poison ivy bushes will never become diseased, so compost and supercompost are unnecessary. A poison ivy bush yields 4 poison ivy berries, which will grow back eventually once picked.

Growing a poison ivy bush is part of the hard tasks from the Varrock Tasks.
