Magic seed detail

Magic seeds are the highest level tree patch seeds. At level 75 Farming, magic seeds may be planted in plant pots with a trowel and watered to become magic saplings.

A magic seed, when planted in a tree patch, may grow into a magic tree. Planting the seed gives 145.5 experience and checking the health gives 13768.3 experience, for a total of 13913.8 experience per seed (unless the tree dies while growing).

A fully grown magic tree can be cut to yield magic logs (and grant Woodcutting experience). After the tree has been cut down, it will eventually regrow; however, with level 80 Summoning, a hydra may be used to instantly regrow and cut down trees in tree patches. Using a spade on the cut tree roots before the tree has regrown yields magic roots and makes the tree patch available for planting a new tree. Alternatively, players can right click and clear the tree. This instantly removes the tree whether or not it has been cut down from the patch, making the patch available for a new seed to be planted, but no magic roots or logs are obtained.

The farmer next to the patch will protect a growing magic tree from disease, in exchange for 25 coconuts.

Magic seeds may be found rarely in bird's nests, which can be obtained randomly while Woodcutting or from Managing Miscellania. Magic seeds may also be obtained by freeing a dragon impling, and as a drop from monsters with access to the rare drop table. Players can also obtain a magic seed as a reward from the Evil Tree Distraction and Diversion. This seed is one of the few tree seeds which cannot be obtained through the Vinesweeper minigame.
