Tinctoria is a plant that is used to dye the clothes and hair of a pawn to a set color, preferably the favorite color of a pawn.

Use the resulting dye at a Styling station.

NOTE: Since it needs only a 31% light level to actively grow (as the other "flower" crops do), Tinctoria will grow indoors with simple standing light or even by torch light. However, due to its short lifespan, and the lowered growth rate from 50% light, tinctoria will rot by the time it reaches 50% growth if planted in 100% fertile soil, and 70% growth in 140% fertile rich soil. Planting it in hydroponics will allow it to reach full growth under 50% light however.
