Guam seed detail

Guam seeds can be planted in a herb patch in order to produce grimy guams. This requires a Farming level of 9.

A nearby gardener will not watch over your growing guam.

Guam seeds may be bought from the Vinesweeper minigame for 10 points each, by pickpocketing Farmers and Master Farmers, as a drop from various monsters, and from Managing Miscellania.

When planting a Guam seed, it is recommended to use any type of compost in order to maximise potential yield and to reduce the chances of the patch becoming diseased and dying.
