Ultimate Herbalism

Wiki Note: These tables are intended to be copied, then printed, and used as a quick reference for how many herbs of each type you have while you're playing at your gaming table. We encourage using tally marks in the quantity space, rather than constantly writing and erasing numbers. Keep in mind that some plants are found in multiple biomes. (If your copying doesn't seem to be holding the formatting, try screenshotting the page and printing it as a picture instead.)
