|Examine||A Torstol seed - plant in a herb patch.|
A nearby gardener will not watch over your growing torstol.
Planting torstol seeds can be profitable, so therefore players are advised to make sure that the herbs do not die. Supercompost (or Fertile Soil spell) is strongly recommended, as this is the best way of reducing the chance of your herbs from becoming diseased, as it is not possible to water the patch or ask a farmer to tend the herbs.
Some players only grow Torstol in the disease-free herb patch (unlocked after My Arm's Big Adventure) and fill the other herb patches with less risky herbs to minimise potential losses. Using a Juju farming potion can also be useful to maximise the number of herbs harvested.
The following table shows the profit yield, assuming all the herbs and seeds are purchased/sold at the Grand Exchange for the guide price. If the herb dies, you will lose -70,221 coins.
|Herb yield||Profit/loss||Herb yield||Profit/loss|
Note: Supercompost yields a minimum of 5 herbs.

Torstol seeds have increased in price significantly in the Grand Exchange since the Herblore Update in October 2009 due to Torstol's use in making Overload potions. Torstol seeds currently cost 70,221, whereas in September 2009, Torstol seeds were worth about 17k each. In the same time frame, Clean Torstol weeds have increased in price from about 3k each to 10,871 each.
Farming Torstol has become more profitable than it used to be, but at the same time, risky, since herb crops can always die and the seeds have a high cost. The possible profit, however, had grown near Snapdragons and even surpassed it.
