Cotton plants have a base growing time of 8 days, need a minimum soil fertility of 50%, and have a fertility sensitivity rating of 70%. The following table details how long it takes for cotton plants to grow in each growable ground type, factoring in the plant resting time and being in ideal growing conditions:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Fertility (%) 70 100 140 280
Grow Time (days) 17.49 13.82 10.8 7.23
Base Yield/day[1] 0.74 0.94 1.2 1.8

Food Production

Cotton plants don't yield any human-edible products.


The cotton plant's raw product is cloth, which has a market value of 1.9 silver. The refined product with the largest profit margin is a duster, having a 1.32%[1] profit margin. The following table details silver per day, per plant. It only factors in the 50% selling markdown, the market value of the products, and the yield per day:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Raw 0.71 0.89 1.14 1.71
Refined 0.72 0.91 1.16 1.73

Normal quality cloth dusters are actually profitable when compared to devilstrand dusters. This is because cloth dusters have a higher work:ingredient value ratio compared to devilstrand dusters; a larger market value gain relative to the total value of the ingredients.
