Tica Species in Mirateia | World Anvil

Tica

The Tica plant is local to the Tusmait region and can only be found there in the wild, it is possible to find them in gardens at some of the more wealthy nobles. It can for example be found in the Royal Gardens in Pearlhal    When the Aloc people settled in the mountains of Tusmait, they quickly found out that the Tica plant was, with very little work needed, well suited for clothing and other uses like baskets.   Because the Tica is not well suited for normal agriculture and because of the place it would otherwise take if they where to be planted in fields, the Aloc people have instead opted for what they call natural farming where they let the plants grow wild but gives a hand with removing sick leaves or removes sick plants if its needed so that the people always will have a healthy supply of Tica plants for their needs.
