This mod will make all flora behave more realistically by changing their appearance when you harvest them (whether you are successful or not). When you harvest a plant if its ingredient is a flower then the plant's flowers will disappear and so on, through some plants ingredients are roots which they don't have and you can't see them anyway so the flowers disappear instead (think of it as you snapping them off to let yourself know you've already collected the roots from it).

Add-ons
NoMushroomStalks
This will makes mushrooms disappear entirely when harvested instead of leaving stalks behind.

Installing: Copy the contents of the NoMushroomStalks folder into your Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data folder.
Uninstalling: Delete the HarvestFlora folder located in Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data\Meshes.

Notes, Known Issues & Incompatibilities
-Behaviour of Nirnroot remains unchanged.
-Pitcher Plants have no ingredient so they will now become un-harvestable (next time the cell resets you'll be unable to attempt to harvest nothing from them).
-Attacking plants like the Spiddel Stick will no longer attack you once harvested.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Question: Something strange is happening, plants aren't appearing harvested or it's happening very slowly, what's wrong?
Answer: What you have is the animation bug (not caused by Harvest [Flora] or any other mod), it usually happens in gamesaves over 200 hours and affects anything animated. To fix this problem you'll need to use zBobGuy's Animation Fixer on your afflicted gamesaves.

Q: Will I loss my plants if I remove Harvest [Flora] or upgrade to a new version of Harvest [Flora]?
A: No and No. Since Harvest [Flora] v3.0.0 plants are no longer disabled and it also acts as a STOP plugin from the previous versions of Harvest [Flora] undoing any disabled flora thus it is safe to enable/disable Harvest [Flora] whenever you like without fear of losing flora.

Q: Harvest [Flora] broke my plants in the Vile Lair!!! what do I do?
A: Was a nasty little bug but has since been fixed in Harvest [Flora] v3.0.0, to get your flora back you'll need to disable DLCVileLair.esp load any afflicted gamesave and resave them then enable DLCVileLair.esp again. Warning: make sure you take any items you want out of the Vile Lair or you'll lose them, also you'll have to purchase all the upgrades again!
