Pot of Blooming

(Base 15, +1M Touch, +2M Sun)

Yes, I know this is similar to the Prodigious Plant Pot. But I was trying to modify it in a way that focused on Creo more. This takes an existing plant and brings it to fruit, rather than growing a whole plant. I took it from the Tree focus in the Covenants book, which states that Trees give a bonus to Cr or He.
