Many of these strategies can be done together at the same time; be sure to plan your strategy well. For quick cash, farming is not the best option, but will be a good option for players with much patience.

Notice: The Juju farming potion will give you a one in three chance of picking two herbs at a time while harvesting herbs, and lasts for 5 minutes. For the more valuable herbs, this will make a SIGNIFICANT increase in profit, and can be made from materials acquired while playing the Herblore Habitat activity.

Note: Profit depends highly on the number of crops each plant yields and if one is using the 4 allotment/herb/flower patches only. Also, profit column assumes nothing died.

Plant torstol seeds (23,347 coins) in herb patches. You can harvest 5-12 Grimy torstol herbs per seed, translating to a profit between -23,347 to 90036 per seed. Be warned though, as the average herb yield is 6.5 herbs per seed, which means a 33k loss per seed. It is recommended to use Juju farming potion to increase the average herb yield by 33% (8.6 herbs per seed vs. 6.5). With this amount of herbs almost guaranteed every time, you should get ~300k per herb run, which takes about 5 minutes of your time every hour and a half. It is also advised to get the scroll of life beforehand, as it will save you a lot of money.
