Potato plants are a Farming plant, requiring level 1 Farming to grow. Potatoes are grown by planting 3 potato seeds in an allotment patch using a seed dibber. Once planted, the nearby farmer may be paid to watch over the allotment. Payment is 2 compost.

Planting the Potato seeds gives 8 farming experience. If the farmer does not watch the allotment, then disease in the allotment may be removed using Plant cure, or using the Cure plant spell in the Lunar spellbook with level 66 Magic and completion of Lunar Diplomacy (albeit more expensive, this can save inventory space when doing farm runs). However, if left alone, the diseased allotment will die.

Each potato plant, when picked, give 9 farming experience. Once all potatoes have been picked, the allotment will be clear for new crops.
