How Long Until My Crops Die on Cletus’s Farm?

We’ve all been there, or seen a neighbor there.  Forgot you were growing a crop on the farm and walked away for too long only to come back to a bunch of dead crops!  It’s a pretty crummy feeling, especially because you have to pay money to grow crops.  Almost as if you just wasted good money for a pile of junk, should have grown weeds!

So just how long do you have to walk away from the game, until a crop dies?  Well the answer is pretty simple:

  • Weeds- 45 seconds to grow, 45 seconds to wilt (if only real weeds died this fast!)
  • Perfection- 45 seconds to grow, 3 seconds to wilt (stupid Perfection!)
  • Tomacco- 60 minutes to grow, 24 hours to wilt
  • Silvertounge- 8 hours to grow, 24 hours to wilt
  • Triffids- 12 hours to grow, 24 hours to wilt (And no they won’t end your game)
  • Moonshine- 24 hours to grow, 24 hours to wilt
  • Corn- 90 days to grow, 3 days to wilt

As you can see, Perfection is the biggest pain in this game and dies quick.  So my suggestion is if you’re going to plant Perfection watch it grow so you can harvest it right away…otherwise you might be cleaning up a dead pile of flowers!

Afraid you’ll be away too long to Harvest a crop?  Well if you have some kind neighbors they can always click on a wilted crop and help bring it back to life.  Remember to be kind to your neighbors, if you see their crop has wilted help bring it back to life–and they might just return the favor for you!

If I Plant Triffids, Will They End My Game?

TSTO triffids
A common question comes up among new TSTO players whenever they see the grow list on Cletus’s Farm, and that’s ‘What happens when you grow Triffids?  Why does it say End of Humanity?  Will it end my game?’ (ok so that’s 3 questions)

Don’t worry, Triffids are not going to wipe out villages like the plague, and I promise it won’t even end your game!  Humanity will be just fine, well for one more day anyway.  If you decide to be brave and grow Triffids all that will happen is you’ll gain a lotta xp after the 12 hours are up, however they do not yield cash.  To prove to you it’s safe to grow them, here’s a screen shot from my town just this morning after my Triffids were ready to be harvested:

So if you’re thinking growing Triffids be brave, take a deep breath and push the button!  Then relax and while you gain xp!
