Kronos seeds are a type of anima seed requiring level 76 Farming to plant. They are obtained exclusively from the Hespori, and can only be planted in the anima patch within the intermediate tier of the Farming Guild. Planting a Kronos seed gives 100 Farming experience.

From the moment the seed is planted, the Kronos plant provides a chance for farming patches of the same type to skip a growth stage (e.x. all tree patches will skip a growth stage simultaneously), excluding itself. The plant will provide this effect for approximately 3.5 days (8 x 640 mins) before dying. To maximise the duration of the plant's effects, it is recommended to plant it ~10 minutes after the farming tick occurs in the following times (UTC):

  • Day 1: 12:00 AM, 10:40 AM, 9:20 PM
  • Day 2: 8:00 AM, 6:40 PM
  • Day 3: 5:20 AM, 4:00 PM
  • Day 4: 2:40 AM, 1:20 PM

The next growth stage will occur in approximately 1 hours and 4 minutes (refresh).

Once the Kronos plant reaches its eighth growth stage (~74 hours after planting), it will begin to take on a withered appearance, indicating the plant will die in the next growth stage, though the benefits will remain until death. In order to reap the Kronos plant's benefits again, players must clear the anima patch and plant another Kronos seed. The plant cannot be resurrected with the Resurrect Crops spell.

Date Changes
17 January 2019 (update) Anima seeds no longer give hints about growing them in plant pots, as that is not how they grow.
