Poison ivy bush are berry bushes that may be grown with the Farming skill. Level 70 farmers may grow a poison ivy bush by planting a poison ivy seed in a bush patch using a seed dibber. There is no need to pay a farmer to watch a 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 and no compost is needed.

A poison ivy bush will take 160 minutes to mature. Once mature, the bush will produce a minimum of 4 poison ivy berries at a time. Once any of the Poison ivy berries have been picked, the bush will slowly produce more until all 4 or more are available again at a rate of 1 berry every 20 minutes.

Planting a poison ivy seed in a bush patch grants 120 Farming experience. Checking the health of a poison ivy bush grants 675 Farming experience. Harvesting each berry grants 45 Farming experience, for a minimum of 180 experience for 4 berries. This works out to a minimum of 975 experience from start to finish.

Growing a poison ivy bush is part of the hard tasks from the Ardougne Diary.
