Botanist Traits
The botanist's profession encompasses the procurement of resources from all forms of plant life. This includes harvesting vegetables and grains, tending fruit-bearing trees, cultivating fibrous plants, logging timber, and more.
Botanists also endeavor to educate others about the need to maintain a symbiotic relationship with Eorzea's plants, rather than carelessly stripping them of their useful parts. Owing to their intimacy with nature, botanists are known to revere Nophica, the goddess of abundance.
—Game Description

Botanist is a gathering or Disciples of the Land class that harvests resources from plant lives of Eorzea. They gather raw materials for various crafting classes, including Carpenters, Weavers, Culinarians, and Alchemists.

The Botanist Guild is located in Gridania.

To become a botanist, talk to the botanist guild receptionist when you're level 10 or higher on another class.

There are two types of gathering nodes that botanists can interact with: Mature Trees (yellow icon on the minimap) via logging and Lush Vegetation Patches (blue icon on the minimap, require a secondary botanist tool equipped, first available at level 11) via harvesting.
