Bloodweed seed detail.png

Bloodweed seeds can only be planted in the Wilderness herb patch in order to grow grimy bloodweed. This herb patch is located near the Wilderness destination of canoes, north of the Wilderness volcano. This requires a farming level of 57, giving 72 experience for planting the seed and 81.4 experience per herb harvested.

There is no nearby gardener at the patch to watch over your growing bloodweed, but after completing the hard achievements in the Wilderness set, the Wilderness herb patch will no longer become diseased.

Bloodweed seeds can be obtained from the Bandit Duty Free shop in the Bandit Camp, opening the muddy chest, pickpocketing Rogue Enforcers and Rogue Captains and killing revenants. The seeds in Bandit Duty Free shop restock at midnight UTC.

When planting the bloodweed seed, it is recommended to use supercompost (or the Fertile Soil spell) in order to maximise the potential yield, and if the Wilderness hard achievements have not been completed, reduce the chances of the seed getting diseased.
