GREEN THUMB help thread

In case you’re like me and the only achievement you have left to do at the end of the game is Green Thumb, I’ve started this thread to put all of the information in one place and to allow for discussion / help requests.

I lost track of what I needed because I bought a lot of reagants and collected a lot from trunks and fallen enemies. Those don't count. You have to harvest them from a plant for them to count toward the achievement.
Note however that multiple people have reported getting the achievement when taking Essence of Fate off of fallen enemies, so looting off of enemies might count. We know it counts for Essence of Fate. Just be careful if you choose to count pick ups off of enemies for other reagents, because that is not confirmed.
I didn't start keeping track of what I picked up until the end of the game. I noticed I was low on essence of fate, prismere dust, leechwood bark, sativa, and seaflax. So I started with those. (Turns out though that Tindertwig was the last one I needed. Apparently I only picked up one through the course of the game.)

I simply copied the list below into a word editor and typed 12345678910 in front of each one until I collected 10 again.

Here I'll make it easy for you. Copy this list into word or excel:

Bloodroot
Seaflax
Scarlet Flowstone
Scarwood Bark
Sky Blossom
Essence of Fate
Tindertwig
Black Cohosh
White Flake
Eel Petal
Scarab Salts
Star Thistle
Softscrabble Powder
Sativa Fibers
Cripplespore Caps
Edelweiss
Ysa's Breath
Embereyes
Leechwood Bark
Prismere Dust

First of all, take note that if you want a plant to respawn simply go to one of your houses and sleep for at least two days or wait two in game days.



Let's start with h4mm32's Achievement Guide. It has some pretty good descriptions.

Quote:
Green Thumb: Harvest 10 of each type of reagent.

You need to harvest (not just find/loot) ten each of the twenty reagents in the game. Putting points into Alchemy will increase the chance of harvesting. All harvest points will respawn after some time. Names and locations are as follows:

Bloodroot - Seawatch, located to the left of Caeled Coast on the map, player house, must rebuild first.
Seaflax - Seawatch.
Scarlet Flowstone - Seawatch by alchemical lab.
Scarwood Bark - Seawatch.
Sky Blossom - Seawatch.
Essence of Fate - Go to Araid Camp and make your way back towards High Fulgen, on the way you will see a small cave on the left, fate is inside.
Tindertwig - Seawatch.
Black Cohosh - Allestar Tower, start of the game, also found basically everywhere.
White Flake - Shardfall, top left of Cradle of Summer, inside cave.
Eel Petal - Allestar Tower, at least 2 on the way to first town in the game.
Scarab Salts - Shardfall.
Star Thistle - Seawatch.
Softscrabble Powder - The Court of Winter, final warp point in the game, just warp and turn around.
Sativa Fibers - Seawatch.
Cripplespore Caps - Stonecandle Mines, first mine at start of game, also found in most caves.
Edelweiss - House of Valor, 2 inside warp point, big white bush, also all over the desert.
Ysa's Breath - Seawatch.
Embereyes - Seawatch.
Leechwood Bark - Seawatch.
Prismere Dust - The Court of Winter.

What I did
Another quick note before we begin: A lot of people have been saying they needed White Flake and Scarab Salts. I personally needed Tindertwig. So you may want to search for those first.
Prismere Dust

I started on Prismere Dust by quick traveling to The Court of Winter and traveling backwards toward Alabastra/Amaura. I had ten before I made it out of the House of Vengeance

Essence of Fate

I next had trouble with the Essence of Fate. Here are some more locations (and a better description of the one in the guide) that will help you get to ten faster.
High Fulgan (Alabastra), Go to Primordia South of Camp Moondown. Go south. As you go around the bend, on the right side, there will be a little area to go into (but you do not leave Alabastra). Alternatively Start at Ariad and go north.

Caelled Coast (Klurikon) - Go to Damalroc in the south. From Damalroc, go south. Go over the bridge and take a left into the little boot looking area.

Ettinmere (Dalentarth) - Go to Ballads Oratory. Go south across the bridge. Go west and then go swimming to the little cove on your left.

Hollowlands (Detyre) - Go to Cloudrest. Travel East from the Hollowlands toward Menetrye. Make sure your detect is high and look for the hidden door on your right.
Seawatch

To finish off I went to the garden in Seawatch. You have to fully rebuild Seawatch first by making the three staff return to the castle. I don't recall the starting quest line but I'll post it if someone posts its name in here.

I would harvest all of the reagents in Seawatch and then run to the beds in another part of the castle, sleep for two days and start over. Sometimes I had to exit the front door and walk back in to make the reagents physically appear. If I did not I could still harvest the reagents, but they looked as if they were already harvested.

The following Reagents are in Seawatch:
Bloodroot
Seaflax
Scarlet Flowstone
Scarwood Bark
Sky Blossom
Tindertwig
Eel Petal
Star Thistle
Sativa Fibers
Ysa's Breath
Embereyes
Leechwood Bark
If you want additional help with Sativa Fibers and Seaflax here is a thread on those: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=357526

White flake

If you still haven't gotten the achievement by now, head to Shardfall to pick up White Flake.


Edit: I need to acknowledge Diamondz. I didn't notice when I started this thread that another thread of discussion had been started quite a few days ago. I hope this thread helps and that I didn't step on anyone's toes. The thread had dropped off to page two or three and for some reason didn't pop up in search. Most of the info in h4mm32's achievement guide came from a post by Diamondz in this thread: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=356583

Quoting his post which he updated with pictures of locations:
