Anyone know how to use a sunlight potion on a blighted plant?
Struggling to figure out how it works.

Tried to find help, only to find your request for help. I am stuck as my cotton plant was blighted right away, I can't advance in the game.

after you make the potion go to the plant and where you would use compost the potion should be on the slot!

I think I know what happened (to me, at least).

I waited a couple of days for the blight to pass, but it was still there. Crafted a Sunlight potion and couldn't find how to apply it.

Reloaded the save, now the plan is unblighted (without using the potion). So what I believe happened is that the plant did unblight itself after a few days but the game did not fully register it. This is why the plant looked blighted but the sunlight option couldn't be used at the plan really wasn't blighted.

Basically it's a bug, and quitting & reloading should fix it.

Edit: It is still blighted after the relog. Also the "cutting" didn't change anything.

10 days have passed in my game and my corn is still blighted. Can't use the potion but when I try to move it with F it says it's blighted (although it doesn't look blighted). I saved and exited the game, but still won't work :/

My corn seems to be permanently blighted. Won't take the potion, but I've slept, saved and reloaded, and nothing changes it.

I have the same problem and the plant no longer looks blighted but still acts as if it's blighted, and doesn't change after quitting and reloading either. As it's the cotton plant, I can't progress either since I need this for the mask upgrade

I have two cotton plants and still haven't been able to upgrade the mask, so there's a possibility you'll find another one :)

Just posted here to say same. Cannot grow corn and I have restarted my game multiple times and I cannot use the potion because compost is still in the option

I'm having the same problem with my cotton. Reloaded my save and now there isn't purple smoke on the plant but it still wont grow.

Well, looking at this publisher's other titles, we'll be lucky to get even one patch, so I'm thinking this is one to avoid if you're not on Gamepass.

How are you getting blighted plants? I've been playing for awhile now and my plants have never blighted
Stygian1 Apr 22, 2023 @ 1:54am 
I accidentally blighted my first corn plant before I knew what blight was, since the game does a poor job of explaining things at the start. Now that plant is permanently blighted (maybe because I harvested from it to further the tutorial mission?) Unable to use the potion on it to fix the issue, so now it just takes up a precious spot under the tree that could be used for a plant that isn't bugged out.

@Sahako, how did you find a second cotton plant?
Kali Archon Apr 22, 2023 @ 4:57am 
I guess I never channeled my plants more than twice. you can see when it's going to blight when the light is purple so I just don't do it. You also do end up getting more plants than you need because I have a bunch of spares that are sitting in a chest not doing anything
