I had a bug related to Plasma Fruit after each game start that could be get past by placing them in the inventory of a different sim before putting it back. Maybe someone with this bug want to try out if this is a general work around for this bug as well.

Everything that was painfully grown (over generations) to perfect quality is gone in my game too. I've never used any mods or cc so all I can blame is the patch.

I have been noticing the same for all my perfect death flowers. 
Even when I reload a previous save. 

I have also tried making copypasto copies of death flowers and they too will disappear upon travelling to a different lot. 

Another glitch I have seen after the new patch is my "give potion" options appear multiple times in two action wheels.

@crinrict Happend just with the harvestable things in inventory with better then normal quality. Normal quality flowers and plants stayed. Worse is the fast decrease of needs of all sims, especially toddlers. I see there is so many mistakes after november patch, I hope they will make some fix soon...

@CGrant56  I tested this on my save by regrowing my plasma fruit tree, death flowers, and various potion ingredients as normal quality. I can confirm in my save, that the normal quality harvestables stay, but anything above that still disappears. So potions and plasma fruit are back on the menu, albeit at a lower quality.

@SBabbin I added a bunch of info from my tests (comment #12) and some of it may help with your issue for workarounds, etc...

  • If you leave the (above normal quality) flowers & harvestables on the plants or in the household inventory (not personal inventory) they don't delete.
  • You can take (above normal quality) harvestables with you in your personal inventory, but only for one 'jump'/load. You must sell them or use them before traveling again or they will delete.
  • To help the toddlers you could leave plates of items that spoil slowly or not at all for them to grab. Produce, gourmet fruitcake, I was told popcorn in the popper doesn't spoil (maybe test if the toddler can grab a serving from that?), leave out food for the day that spoils slowly for the toddler to grab a serving from, and at level 10 of the chef career there is an aspiration reward trait available where they can make food that never spoils. Do you have any level 10 chefs in your households? If not I do and can upload her to the gallery for you, if you let me know. 
  • I have a death flower room, a death flower plant room, and a room with ambrosia in the EA Gallery if you want to download them.

I know none of this is anything but a workaround and that it's frustrating and a hassle, but I hope it helps as a Band-Aid for now.
