This is what the RuneScape Wiki states:

"Crops have the possibility of becoming diseased at the end of each growing cycle. The number and length of growing cycles varies with each crop.
For example, herbs grow in 4 cycles of 20 minutes each, providing at least 4 opportunities for the crop to become diseased
. Therefore, this aura can prevent disease in one of those cycles for each crop, but cannot prevent disease completely."

Yeah, I read that too, so the odds of this aura working is pretty slim if 2 dead @109. I think I'd have the same chance without the aura of getting two dead - So the aura doesn't help really.
I am a A List :D WOOT WOOT for me :D

Just check your herbs regularly if you are concerned over disease.

The aura is clearly working as intended.

I feel I would have the same results without the aura. I have never had three dead patches without the aura, two is pretty slim without the aura. The only good thing is if you get a higher aura you can yield more product <- so I am going to give this a go since auras are on special at the moment.

The aura prevents crops from being diseased for the duration you've got the aura activated, meaning for a maximum of 20 minutes.

Herbs specifically have 4 growth cycles consisting of 20 minutes each and at the end of each growth cycle there is a chance that your crops either advance to the next growth stage or become diseased.
Thus, the greenfinger aura only prevents your herbs from becoming diseased for the first out of the 4 cycles, meaning they can still become diseased then later die during the 3 next growth cycles.

Compost (and watering in the case of flowers and hops) reduce the chance of disease, but doesn't make your patch immune to it.

The only way to be certain that no herbs will die is to frequently check their status with the lunar spell "remote farm" and cure the patch if it has become diseased. Otherwise it's down to luck.

Having several herbs patches die isn't uncommon regardless of level - it happened frequently to me as well when I used to farm herbs a couple years ago. :P

That's what I am saying, the aura isn't helping when it comes to herbs, you'd get the same luck without it - that is how I feel. But I have brought higher auras since this thread to help get a bigger yield. At this stage, I am only after more of one particular herb as to buy them is close to 3k each.
