Botania is a magic tech mod based on nature. It’s still being developed. This thread is based for discussion, so help yourself to some. It’s inspired by other magic mods, such as Thaumcraft or Blood Magic.

The Heisei Dream, one of the flowers currently implemented, turns mobs against eachother.
To get started in Botania, one needs to find magical flowers around the world, they spawn in one of 16 colors. These flowers can be made into petals, which are the main crafting material in the mod. An ingame documentation book exists, in the form of the
Lexica Botania. It tells you how the mod works. You can make it by combining a book with any sapling. Botania features a power system called Mana, which is a somewhat original power system, compared to most others out there. It’s a power system that requires aiming and time coordination, as the power does not go where you want automatically or instantaneously, for more info, see the following video:
The Mana can also be applied for other tasks, such as Runic Infusion (see video below), enchanting, repairing tools or powering magical artifacts.
