Magic bean seeds

Just a quick question about an observation i've made when trying to plant special seeds. My magic bean seed slot has a counter on it, currently calling it limited and counting down from 152 hours.....what does this mean? Am i going to lose my magic bean seeds? Is anyone else seeing this?

    As I recall, there are some deco's that are like this and they are only available during the related weekly event.
    I think that in the very early days of the game these event seeds were similar but that was changed before I started playing (4.5 years ago lol)
    So, no you are not going to lose your seeds   :¬)  (I've never lost mine)

    John has it.

    During the weekly event (Fairy Tale, in this case), certain seeds are made available to purchase.

    In the old days, this was for people who wanted an increased drop rate on items (Bread Crumbs & Fireflies, in this particular event). and didn't want to spend hours and hours planting regular corn. (I don't think many other seeds were available back then, like Sunflowers - or if they did they were *extremely* rare prizes. Now they give them out like candy on Halloween :))

    If you don't HAVE any seeds it will let you buy these special seeds during the event.  The timer is how long until the event ends. If you already have 1+ seeds, then it won't let you buy any (and just gives you the option to plant the 1 or more that you already have).

    I haven't figured out why I would plant any flower other than roses that give me XP for a 30 min run time. I don't seem to get more drop per min w/ any of the others.  I had *hoped* the magic beans would "magically" drop something of great value... nope!  LOL

    Depends on if you're using seaweed, or will be away from the game longer than the 30 min run time. If using seaweed, I look at the total drop per harvest, not the drop rate per hour.  This was posted a long time ago, and I copied it for reference during events:

    That chart was for hats & clovers though (and it also works on Japanese Golden Week for Blossoms & Pellets), it wasn't designed for the weekly events.   The drop rates for the weekly events change from event to event, although the pattern is usually the same; sunflowers always drop the most, followed by wheat, followed by bean, then usually rice, violets, roses, etc., etc.

    Take A Fairy Tale as an example, Beans will drop 30 Bread Crumbs per field, (if they drop, that is - there's always a chance that you don't get any), whereas Violets will drop 13 and Roses will only drop 10. Of course Beans are a 80 minute harvest, Violets 45, and Roses 30. So even on a "drop per hour" basis, Beans win. :)  (Course, Special Alfalfa is still the best @ 37.5 Drops per hour).

    CBF has all the drop rates for each individual event on her page, it's always handy to take a gander at that to see what gives the best drop rates (unless you're using Seaweed of course, then it's always Sunflowers.. At least until we know what kind of drop rates these new seeds give us. I'm not subscribed so I won't be collecting that data).

    @Southern (US1)  yes, I was speaking in general in answer to Deb's statement about not planting anything but roses. And yes, I do use the chart mainly for special events, not the themed ones, although the roses, violets, etc., do drop at a higher rate than regular seeds ... at least mine do.

    That's what I thought they would do the first time I planted them. I waited and waited and waited .... nothing! :)
