Healroot

A slow-growing plant which yields herbal medicine when harvested. Sowing and harvesting healroot are both very labor-intensive tasks because of its delicate shoots.\n\nHealroot was selectively bred for centuries by settlers. It is sometimes also called "healer's hand" by tribespeople - a nickname it owes to its five major medicinal virtues.

This plant was selectively bred for centuries by settlers. It is sometimes also called "healer's hand" by tribespeople - a nickname it owes to its five major medicinal virtues. Planted in the growing zone or hydroponics basins and yields herbal medicine.Sowing healroot requires a minimum growing skill of 8, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them.

Each healroot plant yields 1 herbal medicine when fully grown. Harvesting it early results in a chance of failing to receive anything from the harvest even though it is not marked as failed.

It may be worth walling off your healroot, as wildlife is more than inclined to consume it, hindering your overall herbal medicine production. A herd of Thrumbos (or even a single for that matter) will be destructive to your Healroot farm if left unprotected.

There is a variety that can be found naturally growing in boreal forests, cold bogs, temperate forests, temperate swamps and tundras, known as Wild healroot. It is statistically identical except it can't be cultivated manually.
