Description[]

Ask not a man what goes into his compost heap. That is his business alone. It is what a man removes from his compost heap that matters.

Notes[]

  • The Compost Heap turns decayable items into Icon fertilizer.png Compost that can be used in Icon planter t2.png Planters to grow basic crops like Icon aloe vera.png Aloe Leaves from the corresponding sources like Icon aloe seeds.png Aloe Seeds. Compost can be further enriched into Icon potent fertilizer.png Potent Compost to grow rarer crops like Icon grey lotus flower.png Grey Lotus Flower from Icon grey lotus seeds.png Grey Lotus Seeds.
  • Compost Heaps will accelerate the decay rate of anything placed inside by a factor of 20. Icon ice.png Ice, as an example, will have its decay timer reduced from 10 minutes in the player inventory to 30 seconds in a compost heap. Decay acceleration always happens, even when no compost is present in the heap. This can be used for items unrelated to farming, such as hatching pet eggs.
  • If compost is left inside the heap, it will produce a single stack of Icon fat grub.png Fat Grubs at a rate of one grub per 30 seconds. This does not consume the compost: one compost in a heap can generate grubs indefinitely. The replenishment rate of grubs (30s) slightly outpaces the accelerated decay rate (30s + 5s grace), meaning the stack of grubs will slowly grow until it reaches its maximum of 50. No further grubs are generated once the stack is full. These grubs can be used in conjunction with an appropriate tanner to create a Icon silk.png Silk farm by setting up a large number of compost heaps and using an Icon Artisan workstation.png Artisan Table.
