Xibalba spoke - free food

A voice was heard in the Amazon, wailing in loud lamentation, the natives weeping for their loss of food. So the Xibalba spoke:
"I shall open the gate to the land of plenty! Find food in trunks, spread across the maze. Only for this moon!"

Seedlings are available at a cost of 2 coin from the fishing hut in Baia Santa Rosa.

** You must be a Supporter to use this plant. **

Rez the plant and position it where it is to grow, then click it. Once you have planted your plant you must NOT move it. If you do so it will die (i.e. once planted, do not take it…
