A spirit seed is a rare seed that members can use to grow a spirit tree at level 83 Farming. Although the assist system cannot be used at any point to help others grow spirit seeds, boosts can be used, allowing players to grow the tree as early as level 78 with a pork pie.

There are four spirit tree patches, one each at Port Sarim, Etceteria, Brimhaven and Manor Farm. After completion of the quest Prisoner of Glouphrie, players may plant and grow up to two spirit trees with level 86 Farming (81 with pork pie, 82 with stranger plant boost, or 83 with garden pie). After completion of both Plague's End and Prisoner of Glouphrie, with level 89 farming (cannot be boosted), players can unlock a third spirit tree by talking to Glouron inside the Crwys district of Prifddinas. Finally, the fourth Spirit Tree Patch is unlocked upon reaching level 114 Farming and the Apprentice Farmer rank. Players must pay each farmer separately to watch each of their spirit trees. Multiple spirit tree seeds may be planted in plant pots and grown into spirit tree saplings at the same time, but the number that can be planted from a sapling into a patch is limited by the number of patches that are unlocked by the player. Once a spirit tree is grown or dies, it can be removed, and another sapling can be planted.

Players must first plant the seed in a plant pot containing soil, water it from a watering can or magic watering can (can be added to the tool belt), and then wait for the seedling to germinate. They must then plant the spirit sapling in one of the four spirit tree patches, which are located south of the castle on Etceteria, in north-east Port Sarim, in north-east Brimhaven, and north of Manor Farm allotment. These patches are attended by the following gnome farmers: Yulf Squecks (Etceteria), Frizzy Skernip (Port Sarim), Praistan Ebola (Brimhaven), and Wilfred Butternut (Manor Farm). These farmers will each watch over a spirit tree for 5 Monkey nuts, a Monkey bar, and a ground suqah tooth.

After The Prisoner of Glouphrie, Golrana wishes to learn about Spirit trees and will offer storage for spirit tree seeds.

How to obtain[edit | edit source]

  • Players can buy a spirit seed from Mrs. Winkin for 55,000 Vinesweeper points. Growing a spirit tree yields only 19,501.3 Farming experience, so players desiring experience would do better to trade Vinesweeper points for 55,000 Farming experience instead.
  • Players who have completed Royal Trouble may occasionally receive a spirit seed from managing their kingdom (workers allocated to farming).
  • Dropped by ganodermic beasts
  • They may be obtained from Bird's nests, including nests from Miscellania and Etceteria (workers allocated to woodcutting maple or mahogany trees).
  • The Motherlode Maw has an uncommon chance of awarding a player this seed.
