    i can't give exact numbers, but according to KR sources it seemed like a very small buff that was hardly noticeable.

    yea, that would be nice. also I agree with the seed stacking in inventory, I mean unless that's the way they get you to buy more slots.

    Why they do this I do not understand. I've raised plants in real life. Most of them you get hundreds if not thousands of seeds per seed plant. 1-3 is frustrating. That they take up an individual slot each is, well, ridiculous.
