As of the current version (1.3), the type of pigment you receive is based solely on the level of the seed you start with. The type of seed has no effect. For example, Honeycomb Extract can be produced from any Level 1 or Level 25 seed. The following table summarizes the information.
|Apothecary Skill||Name||Makes||Seed level required|
|1||Honeycomb Extract||Golden Yellow Dye||1, 25|
|1||Resinous Brown Extract||Scorched Brown Dye||50, 75|
|1||Verdant Leaf Extract||Goblin Green Dye||100, 125|
|1||Blue Bottle Fly Extract||Seaguard Blue Dye||150, 175|
