You are able to sense the presence of diseases in plants and creatures of the plant type. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study the particular area or subjects.

1st Round: Detect the presence or absence of blight.

2nd Round: Learn the percentage of diseased plants within the area of effect.

3rd Round: Learn the condition and location of each infected plant. In areas where there may be hundreds or thousands of individual plants, you “see” swaths of disease and its varying conditions. You know the type of infection, the incubation period, and the damage the blight causes.

Conditions: For the purposes of this spells, the categories of condition are as follows:

Incubating: The plant has the blight, but is not yet showing symptoms.

Infected: The plant has the full-blown blight, and is visibly wilting, shriveling, rotting, etc.

Immune but Transmitting: The plant is carrying the blight and it can spread to other plants, but for whatever reason does not have the disease itself.

Harmless Unless Consumed: The plant has a disease that causes it no harm, but will cause harm to any creature that consumes the plant.
