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 (excluding itself) to skip a growth stage during their next growth cycle; this chance is shared between all farming patches of that growth cycle. For example, if a 20 minute growth cycle is skipped, both herb and bush patches (which advance a growth stage every 20 minutes) will skip a growth stage.

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 9 hours and 41 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.

(update)
Anima seeds no longer give hints about growing them in plant pots when attempting to plant them in non-anima patches, as that is not how they grow.
