I have decided to show the total cost to grow the plants once everything is set up so people can appreciate the value of the Transgen Fruit.

Elaborated below, the total cost to grow a single transgen plant is currently 34.26 PED with markup. This yields on average 8.25 PED of transgen fruit. This places transgen fruit at about 400% markup value, not including the investment or time put into building the garden and growing the plants.


Planting & Growing Seeds: - (NOTE: each level takes 1 hour wait period in order to open next level)

Level 1 - (Seed Germination)

Seed - only 1 of your choosing from Papplon, Bombardo, Caroot, or Haimoros (vibrant Sweat and Fruit refined makes seeds)
Basic Fertilizer - 50 (Refine by adding Fruit first then add Melchi Water to make Basic Fertilizer)
DNA Fragment A - 3

Level 2 - Nourish (stems thickens and grows)

Basic Fertilizer - 10
Energizer Crystal Cell - 2 (refined from Energized Crystal)
DNA Fragment B - 1

Level 3 - Nourish (plants keep growing)

Basic Fertilizer - 10
Dianthus Crystal Powder - 2 (refined from Dianthus Liquid)
DNA Fragment C - 1 (drops from Araneatrox)

Level 4 - Nourish (fully matured fruit)

Basic Fertilizer - 10
Light Liquid - 2 (refined from Lumis Leech)
DNA Fragment D - 1

Harvest - retrieve transgen plants, gain XP (shows in plot management window), and get alot of unprocessed water, lol.

So the total cost here, for all materials is as follows with markup included:

80 Basic Fertilizer: 2.4 PED (80 PEC MU from the Fruit)
2 Energized Crystal Cell: 1.27 PED (at 106% markup)
2 Dianthus Crystal Powder: 3.36 PED (at 280% markup)
2 Light Liquid: 1.93 PED (at 115% markup)
3 DNA Fragment A: 16.50 PED (at 550% markup)
1 DNA Fragment B: 2.50 PED (at 125% markup)
1 DNA Fragment C: 2.82 PED (at 110% markup)
1 DNA Fragment D: 3.46 PED (at 110% markup)

So the total cost to grow a single Transgen Plant to harvest is 34.26 PED with markup included.*
*Those are at current rates as of 21-Jan-2017

This yields about 8.25 PED on average of Transgen Fruit. This number is elaborated below:

Each Transgen Fruit has 1 PED TT in value. Unprocessed water is currently just a TT filler material similar to wood shavings.

9 Transgen Fruit + 11.34 PED Unprocessed Water
7 Transgen Fruit + 6.57 PED Unprocessed Water
5 Transgen Fruit + 8.84 PED Unprocessed Water
8 Transgen Fruit + 6.89 PED Unprocessed Water
9 Transgen Fruit + 13.47 PED Unprocessed Water
7 Transgen Fruit + 9.89 PED Unprocessed Water
13 Transgen Fruit + 3.73 PED Unprocessed Water
8 Transgen Fruit + 9.03 PED Unprocessed Water

As seen in these videos:

As I harvest more (and remember to record it) I will include more datapoints here, if others could share that would be appreciated. Video or Screenshot evidence only please.

I havent't seen DNA Fragments C and D for less than 125%. How are you getting them for 110%

From players and on auction. I am sure the price will rise soon though and i'll have to update the thread here. If you are having trouble I offer a growing service:


https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?291306-Special-limited-time-deal!



Growers 1 Pack: 35 PED for 1 Plant Harvest

Growers 4 Pack: 135 PED for 4 Plant Harvests

Growers 8 Pack: 265 PED for 8 Plant Harvests*


*Please note I take a loss on the Growers 8 pack, you are getting a better deal then making it yourself even if you own your own garden. I am looking to level up my plot so I am willing to take that loss for the experience for my avatar and plot. This is a limited time offer.

So the total cost here, for all materials is as follows with markup included:

80 Basic Fertilizer: 2.40 PED (80 PEC MU from the Fruit)
2 Energized Crystal Cell: 1.27 PED (at 106% markup)
