Our master gardeners treated a few of our plants so they no longer reset to a previous growth stage randomly. If only life worked that way…

Fixed in Patch 1.76.81/ 1.4.

 

I don't find the notes very encouraging. Sounds like not everything was fixed but we shall see.

 

If you still have issues, please create a new thread. Make sure to list the plants you're having issues with and post if they are sheltered or inside.

 

Out of seasons plants that are outside turning to dirt piles is not a bug.

 

EDIT: New thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Plants-reverting-to-dirt-pile-after-fertilizing-Patch-1-76-81/... . please make sure to answer the questions posted in the second post.

Which plants do you have issues with ?

Please try a game repair.

 

Is this a save you started after or before the patch ? Newly planted after the patch ?

 

 

For everyone posting in this thread, please provide the following info

 

  1. Do you own Seasons ?
  2. Do you have large gardens ?
  3. Does it matter which plant or does it happen to all of them ?
  4. Did you plant the plants before or after Nov 11th Patch ?

If you also have green clouds emitting as if the plants were dead but they're not, please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Plants-playing-dead-emitting-green-cloud/td-p/9751...

I was relieved that this was finally fixed with this patch, or so I thought. After playing about 2 sim weeks in my game, my plants started reverting once again to a pile of dirt. This is a new save might I add. From what I remember, so far it has happened to my daisies and strawberries. I will jot down and update if it starts to happen with other plants. 

ETA: I only have 6 plants. So not as many as the OP.

@SimmerMars As OP hasn't come back yet and I don't know what it's for them (before the patch it was sage and basil and issues with the cowplant), could you create a new thread for the time being until OP comes back and make it about those two ?

I might remerge if they confirm it's also these for them.

@SimmerMars I forgot to ask: Do you have seasons ? Both of these are in Seasons spring.

I had some of my plants disappear today when I was watering them. Strangely, not all of them did disappear. I do not have seasons.Plants disappearing.png

The mushrooms were fine. Unfortunately I don't have any other plants to test with at the moment.
