So a couple of weeks of normal behaviour after planting, my 60+ greenhouse sheltered plants have ALL reverted back to dirt piles. They were all fully grown and ALL were ready to be harvested.
I'm convinced it has to do with Eco Living and the N.A.P's, because they reverted practically the same moment the new voting started for NAP's at 8am on Friday, 48 sim-minutes ago. Maybe its connected to the Green Gardening thing, what do I know.... We need to get a fix for this ASAP!
This is game breaking to me, and one of the biggest reasons I stopped playing in July. I feel I might as well take another break, because gardening is a big part of my game. Practically EVERY one of my families have big gardens. Its relaxing and de-stressing, and I find great joy in watching the plants grow, and find uses for them in cooking and what have you. But now, its just frustrating and irritation, and certainly not fun

I just bought the game 2 weeks ago, and now I have to plant multiple version of everything in the hope that at least one will survive the glitch.
I've been experimenting with this bug for a while, on and off, and have all the problems as reported here, plants suddenly reverting to just planted, etc.
Only two, sage and basil, revert to the 'seed' form. So a few days ago I started a new game and haven't planted those two. Without them on the lot, I've had no problems, everything is growing as it should, nothing has reverted to 'just planted' suddenly. The plants are currently all outside so I can't yet say whether it's the same for sheltered plants, but I'll be checking that out later.
No idea if it will continue as the game ages, of course, so far it's been five seasons with no problems, just putting it out there for others to try, maybe, and see what happens.
Good job basil pesto isn't a Sim recipe.
