|Examine||A butterfly flower seed - plant in a flower patch|
A butterfly flower seed is a Farming seed from which butterfly flower plants can be grown by players with 88 Farming. It can be planted in a Flower Patch. Picking the flower gives 3 ruby harvests. Butterfly jars are not needed. Note that the experience is only given once instead of three times for three harvests.
It also has a chance to make a Guthixian butterfly appear near the flower patch. When this happens, the chat box will display the message "A Guthixian butterfly appears."; this message is not filtered. The Guthixian butterfly will only be visible to the player, and appears on the minimap. Like during the Tribute to Guthix event, the butterfly has a large wander range. If not caught, it will stay for 10 minutes before disappearing. In a test conducted with 500 harvests, the probability of a Guthixian butterfly appearing was estimated to be around 1.2%.
Butterfly flower seeds can be purchased for 3000 points each in the Vinesweeper minigame. The seeds can also be obtained through high-level pickpocketing - such as dwarven traders, gnomes or elves. They can also be gained through hunting jadinkos.
