@ANTONJPSTER Is this the only fertilizer you have issues with ?

Sounds similar to this: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Multi-queued-plant-fertilization-appear-to-only-fertilize-firs...

Yes. As I mentioned  it is when trying to  fertilize a plant with sims's dog poop. It does not fertilize the plant. The poop is stil in sim's inventory  and is not used. There is the normal animation  of plant  being  fertilized. But the fertilize text on clicked plant  is not greyed out as normally  happens.Therfore  plant has not been fertilized.Thank you for replying crinrict.

@ANTONJPSTER Yes, but if you use something else than dog poop, does it work ? Especially when you queue stuff.

I can't help but wonder if this change is By Design, since in real-life, you're not supposed to use pet poop as fertilizer (something I've read before, if I remember correctly).

Yes it does work with  normal harvested  plants when queueing fertilising plants.I can queue several  plants for fertilization with plants that  I have already harvested. Pet poop from dog was aways  available  as fertilizer  until latest patch. If  sim has any dog poop available  in sim''s inventory.Clicking  plant  and fertilize  brings up menu with dog poop  available as fertilizer if  in sim's inventory.

Not as  far as I know. Pet poop is still selectable  item for fertilization with plants.It is also stated as best fertiliser  for plants on forum's.

I have the same issue with poop fertilizer and this issue here as well: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Fertilize-several-plants-with-the-same-item-doesn-t-work/...

The option to pick the dog poop as a fertilizer appears in my choices, but when I choose the option, my sim performs the action, but the plant does not fertilize and remains with the option to fertilize.

I am having this issue too. No problems when I use fish to fertilize even if I que it to fertilize more plants, as lon as I don’t use the same product on more than one plant in a row
