How to Make Compost in OSRS?
To make compost, you will first need a compost bin. Fortunately, you can find compost bins right next to farming patches, which means you don’t need to build one yourself.
Inside a compost bin, you must place 15 items and leave them for about 60 minutes. After placing the items in the compost bin, closing it, and waiting for 60 minutes, the stuff you have placed into the bin will have converted into compost.
Once the compost is created, you can collect it using buckets. It means that once you are done making the compost, you need buckets to be able to use the compost at a farming patch.
Fortunately, getting a bucket is not that difficult in OSRS. In fact, a bucket is probably one of the most widely available items in OSRS. You can purchase a bucket for very cheap at nearly all general stores.
If you have waited 60 minutes for the items to convert into compost, you can get about 15 buckets of compost from one compost bin.
When you fill one bucket with compost, you get 4.5 Farming experience. If you collect all the compost from the compost bin, you get 67.5 Farming experience (or 4.5 x 15).
Here is a list of some of the items you can use to create compost:
- Curry leaf
- Grimy Marrentill
- Watermelon Slice
- Woad Leaf
- Krandorian Hops
- Edible Seaweed
- Potato Cactus
- Grimy Tarromin
You must make sure that you fill the bin with at least one compostable item of a different type if you decide to add tomatoes inside the bin. If you don’t do that, you will end up with rotten tomatoes instead of compost.
