Sapling detail.png

Spirit saplings are used to grow spirit trees, with 83 Farming. This can be boosted from level 78 Farming with spicy stews. When boosting, note that planting the seed in the pot and planting the sapling requires 83 farming. They can both be done in one boost if timed correctly. Saplings grow on a global tick which occurs once every 5 minutes. First determine when this tick happens with a different seedling. Also, check with a different boost if the skill reduction tick isn't too close to the sapling tick. If the ticks don't overlap, you can easily grow the seedling and plant the sapling in one boost.

They can be made by planting a spirit seed in a filled plant pot, with a gardening trowel in your inventory, and then watering the spirit seedling with a watering can or by using Humidify. When watered, the seedling will sprout into a sapling in one crop cycle (0-5 minutes).

Planting the sapling in a spirit tree patch, with a spade in your inventory, will give 199.5 Farming experience. It will grow into a spirit tree after 3840 minutes (2 days and 16 hours), which gives 19,301.8 Farming experience.

At 83 Farming, players can only have one spirit tree planted at a time. Level 91 Farming allows for two spirit trees to be planted at a time, whilst 99 Farming allows for unlimited spirit trees.

Players can ask the gardener to protect their tree from disease whilst it grows, which requires payment of 5 monkey nuts, 1 monkey bar, and 1 ground tooth. This payment can be noted.

As there are limited spots the player can plant spirit trees, any excess spirit saplings the player might have can be traded in at Guildmaster Jane for tier 5 seed packs.
