For example, tomatoes can be harvested after four days, then twice more with two-day intervals before vanishing. Blueberries, however, have a nine-day cycle followed by every three days for 18 days. Apples are in it for the long haul, lasting 30 in-game days (hours).

When it comes to fertilizers in Palia, optimizing a gardening strategy can significantly impact yield and profits. Here’s a ranking of the available gardening fertilizers in Palia.

  1. Harvest Yield Fertilizer: The cream of the crop. Boosts are produced by one additional item. Always worth using for maximizing profits. However, it doesn’t stack with partner plants’ harvest yield.
  2. Weed Block Fertilizer: As the name suggests, it prevents weeds. Useful if you’re away for an extended period. 
  3. Hydrate Pro Fertilizer: Good for lazy gardeners. It’s ideal if you’re going offline for a while or can’t attend to your garden regularly.
  4. Quality Up Fertilizer: Valuable early on for boosting produce quality. However, it becomes obsolete as gardening levels increase and you acquire higher-quality seeds.
  5. Speedy Grow Fertilizer: Skips a growth day occasionally. It sounds good, but the randomness can lead to uneven growth, making it costly. Not recommended.
