Cotton and Bamboo Disappears

Why every time that I grow cotton and bamboo it disappears? I never have the raw materials to create products. Is there a setting that I need to change.

You might be experiencing a known problem where the game keeps switching back and forth between two different systems of planting.

Under the original system, we used up one crop to plant a field, then harvested two of the crop, leaving a net increase of 1.

Under a new system already rolled out to some players, we do not consume a crop to plant, but pay with coins to plant a field. Under this system, we only get one when we harvest, so that is still a net increase of 1.

A small number of players have a problem with the game constantly going back and forth. If you had the coins system when a field was planted, you will only harvest one even if the old plant with crops system is now in effect. You will use that one up when you replant the field, leaving you no farther ahead until you harvest again.

My only tip is to try and figure out which system is in effect before you replant. If it is the one that will use a crop instead of coins, you can try closing the game. It may switch again when you reopen.

Good advice Beth! :) I have the switching crop system issue so I try to capitalize whenever I have ‘Crops for Coin’ by first planting and replanting the staples...Cotton, Bamboo, Pineapples and Coffee. When I have at least 100 or so of each of those; I then plant those crops I’m usually low on like Wheat, Vanilla, Sugarcane or Lavender. ;)
