As watering a patch makes it resistant to disease for the next growth tick, it functions very much like a white lily. The watering occurs whenever a plant advances a growth stage, so it could be possible for the plant to become diseased right after planting. As the sprinkler only reduces the risk of disease, rather than eliminating the risk of disease entirely, it is still possible for plants to die while one is planted. The sprinkler has the advantage of not requiring any time to grow before it becomes functional. It can also be removed from the flower patch by using a spade on it, returning it to inventory to be reused. A spade held in the player's tool belt will not work.
