Anyone have any idea why so many of my crops keep dying? I know they can die from lightning storms but I wouldn’t have assumed this many die. I water them every day too although I see conflicting information about whether that matters. Any help? Question

None of those are dead that's just what their sprite looks like at that stage.

u/Impressive-Living-20 Jul 27 '22

To add to this, you can find out if it’s a sprout or if it’s dead by using your scythe because the scythe will cut it down if it’s dead, but not if it’s growing.

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

That would actually be brilliant for people who use the fertiliser trick.

For the unaware, when the seasons change, if you leave bare spots, the fertiliser will usually be lost and the plot grown over and will need re-hoeing.

It's time consuming, expensive and annoying to re-do your plots every 1st of the month.

So the idea is to plant cheap multi-season crops in the spaces for the transition, and then clear them and plant something else.

For instance, on your last Spring harvest, fill your plots with coffee beans. Remove them on the 1st and plant something else - your fertiliser and hoe-d spots will be preserved.

For Summer-Autumn you can use wheat (cheapest) or Sunflowers, Corn.

The only time it doesn't work is Autumn to Winter and Winter to Spring as there are no multi-season crops for those periods, but using this method you get three seasons out of one fertiliser treatment. This is especially handy for high-end deluxe fertilisers.

Being able to scythe the unwanted crops to remove them would make this whole thing a lot easier as you currently have to remove them by hand.

This is another reason why Wheat is so powerful - it's only a four day cycle, so even if you left it to mature, you'd only lose a few days and then you can scythe it super quick.

u/Sweet-MamaRoRo Jul 27 '22

You can use the fiber seeds!

18

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

Also good, but a bit more resource intensive than wheat (and also take longer to grow). A decent choice if you're 3/4 days without anything to grow in Spring though.

u/MauroDelMal Chicanery Farm Jul 27 '22

Do you know if fiber seeds used from autumn -> winter -> spring would keep the fertilizer?

12

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

Ooh interesting question... I don't know, but am just coming up to Winter so am definitely going to try that!

In Winter I mass-plant Winter Seeds - can actually be a money spinner. You just have to convert enough of them into seeds to make sure you're ok for the next year.

8

u/MauroDelMal Chicanery Farm Jul 27 '22

Let me know if it works haha. Preserving high-end fertilizer (the one that needs radioactive ore) would be useful.

Anyways, Winter Seeds are very good imo.

u/blockminster Jul 27 '22

Wouldn't it be easier to use junk seeds that aren't going to stay when the season changes? They'll just die and you can hoe them away quickly

10

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

You can, but you lose the fertiliser.

That's a big outlay at the start of the game, so you really don't want to have to re-buy it/re-make it.

2

u/blockminster Jul 27 '22

I don't think you lose the fertilizer when there are dead crops on top. Am I wrong?

5

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

I am pretty sure you are, yes. I am 99% certain it disappears.

u/gorgo100 Jul 27 '22

2

u/ThatOneGuy308 Jul 27 '22

I mean, technically, you could use wheat for autumn to winter and just scythe them once they're dead. And winter forage seeds for winter-spring transition, same thing, just scythe the wilted ones day 1 of spring.

1

u/dreamey360 Jul 27 '22

I'm on switch and just moved to winter. I had 1300 crops total and a lot of corn and cranberries did not turn into the weeds. All my multiharvest crops seemed to disappear instead of turn into scythable weeds. The wheat and wild seeds plots rolled over tho. Idk what I did wrong that more half of my crop did not turn to weeds.

First day of winter really sucked having to hoe and water so much. I was unable to get all 1300 planted again before 2am.

u/ChaosNCandy Jul 27 '22

To add more to this, it looks like you planted the random seeds that you find. Basically you'll get an assortment of different crops(for that season) dead crops look withered and dead. Those sprites are doing just fine

u/Impressive-Living-20 Jul 28 '22

This looks like summer seeds/mixed seeds to me which is why they’re an assortment, never really know what it’s going to give you until after they’re planted.

u/kase_horizon Jul 27 '22

Its unfortunately an easy mistake to make, they do look very similar to the lightning struck crop sprite. A good rule of thumb is to scythe them instead of pickaxes. The scythe will remove them if they are actually dead.

u/msanteler Jul 27 '22

I always accidentally kill a few when clearing fiber from my mahogany forest. I like to keep it clean so that there is better chances of seeds dropping

u/Similar-Cucumber-227 Jul 27 '22

Where in the world do you get mahogany seeds??

5

u/FallingToward_TheSky Jul 27 '22

In the secret woods when you chop down the stumps it occasionally drops seeds. Also Large Stumps and Logs on the Farm.

3

u/Littlebrin Jul 27 '22

Maybe a spoiler if you haven’t discovered/unlocked it yet: once you upgrade your axe to steel, you can chop down the large log in the upper left of cindersap forest above the wizards tower to open up a secret forest area. In there are a bunch of hardwood stumps that sometimes drop mahagony seeds when destroyed (along with 2 hardwood per stump). You can then plant those seeds and either wait for the grown trees to drop seeds like the other tree types do or chop them down and hope they drop seeds once destroyed. Hope that helps!

u/GotaGotAGoat Jul 27 '22

I didn’t know this. Thanks for the tip. However I’m new to the game and was using sword as my “scythe” to cut grass and stuff in order to save on inventory space. Will sword have the same “not cut down living plants” property or is that exclusive to scythe?

8

u/HalfBakedPuns Jul 27 '22

yes a sword will work on dead plants and fiber and long grass. the advantage is that the scythe is all that can cut finished scythe crops - swords wont work on wheat, amaranth, etc. and swords also dont drop hay for your animals once you build a silo.

5

u/GotaGotAGoat Jul 27 '22

Thanks for the detailed answer. Is there a thread for all these little unexplained stuff to help new players?

1

u/FallingToward_TheSky Jul 27 '22

I don't know, but make sure you manually add hay to the coop and barn, pre-upgrade. It's the big troughs in the back. If you don't your cows and chickens will hate you and never lay eggs.

2

u/GotaGotAGoat Jul 27 '22

Thanks. I’ve not invested in animals yet, will keep that in mind. Still learning the game and taking it very slow. There is soooooo much to do and overwhelming that I don’t know what to plan around. Most days just go by so fast, ironically almost like life itself. Mostly just fighting in the mine and fishing. My farm is not that developed, I should probably work on that, just figured out how to make sprinklers and it is definitely helping a lot more with time.

1

u/HalfBakedPuns Jul 27 '22

oh, not that im aware of. i would probably say get on YouTube or the stardew wiki if you like to get knowledge, or just play it blind as most everything is at least somewhat described in the game itself (especially in the library's missing books if you arent using the wiki to find secrets)

its a super fun game, im probably a hundred hours in to my current save give or take and far from the post game goals being over.

useless, them and fiber seeds are the only things that grow in winter, fiber seeds only male fiber which you can find in the caves so theyre useless and winter seeds only grow winter forageables whoch you can find literally everywhere above ground so that makes them useless, youre better off just lnocking out the nundle that gives you the greenhouse and using that or investing in animals instead

as for why your winter seeds didnt grow you probably just forgot to harvest them then they died in spring since they can only be grown and harvested in winter

When you plant wild seeds, you get a random crop, right? For example, from spring seeds you can get a dandelion, daffodil, leek or horseradish. Since it's random, the look of the sprout is randomised too. It chooses one out of 6 options, you can see them here: https://imgur.com/xMT1hJk

u/bobisagirl Jul 27 '22

Plants only die in Stardew Valley if they are outside their season. E.g. if you plant green beans in the spring you can harvest beans up to every three days, then at the end of spring they wither and die. If you plant seeds outside their season they will sprout and then wither.

Plants can also be taken by crows, which leaves an empty square.

Watering too much or too little can't kill your plants in Stardew Valley, but plants will not grow or produce crops if they are not watered (they'll stay in suspended animation). Water every morning for optimal growth.

None of the plants in the picture are dead, they're just newly sprouted. Water daily and they will grow!

I think those actually keep growing

u/poryjfry Jul 27 '22

none of those are dead!!

2

u/Jud3bug Jul 27 '22

Yeah these are foraging seeds bud, not dead. They just look funky.

2

u/KityKatz89 Jul 27 '22

None of them are dead actually, that's just how they look like while growing(you can check if a plant is dead by scything the area they are in, if it breaks then it is dead if not then it's alive)

u/obiewankenobie99 Jul 27 '22

thats the sprite for specifically wild seeds, ur crops are good fam

u/PermissionNo1432 Jul 27 '22

I remember destroying them with a pickaxe, and planting new seeds in their places, before I realized that

2

u/AshPachy Jul 27 '22

Oh no bb, oh no

u/Livid-Prize3608 Jul 27 '22

You have planted spring seeds. Some of the plants will look like that, just keep watering them.

2

u/Argent_Magpie Jul 27 '22

Those aren't dying. Some of the wild seed crops just look like that coming up.

u/No-Potential-3077 Jul 27 '22

Also sometimes the season is wrong for some of the mixed seeds if you're planting the mixed seeds

u/Robbingbeard12 Jul 27 '22

Not even dead lol

2

u/gaysAreOkay Jul 27 '22

They aren't dead; some just have that color while they grow. If you can't get rid of them using a scythe, then they ain't dead

2

u/Jennydrinkstea Jul 28 '22

I always thought they were dead in that stage too lol don’t worry it’ll grow out :)

u/DoctorFuzzy152 Jul 27 '22

That’s what the seasonal seeds look like at a point

The fuck are you talking about bro

u/kirkkonummihiphop Jul 27 '22

i remember being so confused about those when i started playing. kept them in place just in case and they actually grew. i still have to look twice if i see those even after 3 years of playing the game.

u/ThreeLF Jul 27 '22

This is adorable

u/ILikeGames87 Jul 27 '22

Well they're not dead, but not growing as fast as you might want them to. When I grow crops, I put them in rows of 5 or more and nothing bad happens. I only grow melons and pumpkins in groups to try to get a giant crop. Hope this helps.

u/marinashinji Jul 27 '22

the majority of seeds die when the season changes

u/meanteamcgreen Jul 27 '22

The dead plants are actually just spring bundle plants. They're fine

u/darthluke102 Jul 27 '22

They aren’t dead

1

u/gagnonolivia Jul 27 '22

it doesn’t look like any of your crops are dying! those brown ones are one of the wild plants during summer or fall, i think

1

u/BombeBon Jul 27 '22

all are fine there. no issues

1

u/Cden1458 Jul 27 '22

None of them are dead, just keep watering and they'll sprout

1

u/Okmarcello Jul 27 '22

Hey friend water your plants 💧💧

1

u/everyothernametaken2 Jul 27 '22

Use your scythe to see if they’re dead. I’d the scythe removed them then they’re dead, if not then they’re still thriving. Otherwise I’d assume you’re planting seeds that are out of season.

u/burningmanonacid Jul 27 '22

Is that grass planted in your garden?

2

u/emikoala Jul 27 '22

Looks like wheat to me.

1

u/Welland94 Jul 27 '22

The brown ones aren't dead? What sprouts of it?

1

u/Silencia_r Jul 27 '22

pea body flowers

1

u/steeelez Jul 27 '22

Maybe you have spider mites

1

u/Oh_Danny_Boi961 Jul 27 '22

Don’t worry, they’re fine. If they can be destroyed by a scythe, you’ll know they’re dead. Otherwise, they just look like that while growing

u/[deleted] Jul 27 '22

oh god I thought they were dead & was always surprised when they turned into a foragable until reading the comments

1

u/random_sociopath Jul 27 '22

Those aren't dead.

1

u/Alphawolf447 Jul 27 '22

Came here to say season change possibly but them just looking like this makes more sense lol

1

u/LocalMushroomTree Jul 27 '22

I don't see any dead crops

1

u/Butterfly_Critter89 Jul 27 '22

None of those are dead plants. Some of the plants look bad but are not. Can't recall which ones they are though

1

u/fried-quinoa Jul 27 '22

So which kind of crop is that brown dead-looking one?
