I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-905
Alchemist Lodge Peak #7191 was now surrounded by tens of thousands of
apprentice alchemists, all of whom were staring fixedly at Meng Hao and
Fang Xuzhong on the platform.
It was especially interesting that there was a wager between the two of
them, and the apprentice alchemists couldn’t wait to see what happened.
Many could read between the lines, and knew that Fang Xuzhong had
intentionally come here to stir up trouble with Meng Hao. However,
considering that it didn’t affect them personally, those people were
even more excited than the others. They wanted to see who exactly was
better when it came to knowledge of plants and vegetation.
If Meng Hao hadn’t just given a three-day lecture on the subject, the
apprentice alchemists would not have hesitated even a moment to say that
Fang Xuzhong would prevail. Now, however… it was hard to say.
Meng Hao looked extremely bashful as he embarrassedly scanned Fang
Xhuzhong’s bag of holding with divine sense. Then he licked his lips
and looked back over at Fang Xuzhong. He felt luckier with every minute
that passed. He had never imagined that, having only been in the Dao of
Alchemy Division for a few days, there would already be someone who came
looking to deliver up spirit stones.
When he realized what he was thinking, he suddenly felt a bit more
Seeing all the eyes focused on him, Fang Xuzhong snorted coldly. He had
been immersed in the Dao of alchemy for many years, and was highly
proficient when it came to skill with plants and vegetation. As the
saying went, his proverbial pill furnace glowed with the bright green of
perfection. Actually, he was already qualified to be promoted to a tier 3
alchemist, and as such, was absolutely confident in being able to win the
Were it not for the fact that he was badly in need of alchemy resources,
he would never have come here. After all, participating in something like
this was really beneath his status.
His expression proud and lofty, Fang Xuzhong raised his hand high and
then smacked his bag of holding. Instantly, a medicinal plant appeared in
his hand. It was green, and looked no different from an ordinary blade of
grass. He waved his hand, sending it flying through the air to hover in
front of Meng Hao.
“I won’t make things hard for you,” he said coolly. “I’ll show
you three medicinal plants. You simply have to tell me their names and
properties. This is the first one.” From his perspective, this plant in
and of itself was enough to stump his opponent. He planned to show this
Fang Hao the height of the Heavens and the depths of the Earth. He would
help Fang Hao to know exactly how vastly separated the two of them were
in terms of qualifications.
As a tier 2 alchemist, he wanted to ensure a quick victory. Considering
his status in the Dao of Alchemy Division, knocking his opponent out of
the competition with a single blow would be the most suitable result.

Fang Xuzhong smiled coldly, swished his sleeve, then clasped his hands
behind his back and looked arrogantly at Meng Hao. “Forget about this
guy,” he thought. “Not even a tier 1 alchemist would recognize this
Meng Hao was smiling just as before as he looked at the medicinal plant.
All of the apprentice alchemists were also staring at it, trying to guess
what it was. The tier 1 alchemists in the area were also digging through
their memories, and yet, none of them could recall even the slightest
scrap of information about a plant like this.
Immediately, a buzz of conversation rose up.
“This can’t be right. That medicinal plant doesn’t look special at
all. It doesn’t even look like a medicinal plant! Is it just an
ordinary plant from the mortal world?”
“I might not have incredible skill when it comes to plants and
vegetation, but I know a bit. However, this plant… is something I’ve
never seen before.”
“He definitely deserves to be a tier 2 alchemist. He pulled out a
medicinal plant that nobody even recognizes!”
Fang Xuzhong looked haughtily over at Meng Hao.
“If you don’t recognize it, then kneel upon this mountain peak for
three days, and then screw off.” Almost as soon as the words left his
mouth, however, Meng Hao suddenly looked up at him and chuckled.
“Alchemist Fang, I never imagined that you would actually possess this
type of Wind Spirit Grass. Such a plant is useless for medicinal
purposes. However, when struck by a strong wind, it will blossom with a
Spirit Flower. That flower can bloom with up to seven colors, with seven
being the optimal number. That medicinal flower is one of the most
important ingredients used when concocting wind-type medicinal pills.

“Unfortunately, Alchemist Fang, this particular plant of yours has a
lot of imperfections. It will only produce a three-colored flower.”
Meng Hao’s words left the surrounding apprentice alchemists in shock.
Even the tier 1 alchemists were astonished. They had never even heard of
Wind Spirit Grass, although many knew of Wind Spirit Flower. At this
point, they suddenly had an epiphany, and realized the origin of Wind
It was at this point that Meng Hao blew onto the blade of grass. Because
of the level of his cultivation base, that breath was like a gale force
wind. A rumbling sound filled the area, and then the blade of grass began
to wriggle and sway back and forth. Everyone watched as a three-colored
flower bloomed at the tip of the blade, and a medicinal aroma filled the
“It really has three colors!”
“Fang Hao’s skill with plants and vegetation is astonishing after
all! He didn’t just recognize that plant, he was able to judge its
The surrounding crowds were in an uproar. The tier 1 alchemists were now
looking at Meng Hao with complete and utter respect. In the Fang Clan’s
Dao of Alchemy Division, powerful alchemists were treated with fervor and
Fang Xuzhong’s eyes widened, then he stared dead at Meng Hao, and a
serious look spread out across his face. The Wind Spirit Grass might seem
like an ordinary medicinal plant, but it was actually a line of
demarcation when it came to determining skill with plants and vegetation.
Even many tier 2 alchemists wouldn’t know much about it. Even more
shocking to him was how his opponent had identified how many colors the
flower would bloom in. That was something that only tier 3 alchemists
should be able to do.
“So, this guy has some skill after all,” he thought. “It seems I
need to take things a bit more seriously.” Fang Xuzhong waved his hand
to pull the Wind Spirit Grass back into his bag of holding, from which he
then produced another medicinal plant.
This plant had more than one hundred leaves, which formed the shape of a
triangle. The stamen of the plant’s flowers were long and almost looked
like tentacles as they drifted back and forth.
A single look at this medicinal plant, and it was clear that it was
beyond ordinary. Everyone looking at it also felt a faint sense of danger.

“In order to avoid any accusations of bullying,” said Fang Xuzhong,
“I will not require you to explain the properties of this plant. Merely
telling me its name will suffice.” He stared icily at Meng Hao.
Although he didn’t say anything further, inside, he was laughing
coldly. In his opinion, he had underestimated his opponent a bit when it
came to the first medicinal plant. However, with this second one, he was
completely confident that he could secure victory.
“When I first got this medicinal plant,” he thought, “I didn’t
have any idea what it was. It was personally grown by one of the tier 5
alchemists, and I had to spend a small fortune to acquire it.
“It’s completely one-of-a-kind. Not a single manual of plants and
vegetation will contain a description of it. It was grafted together from
a variety of other medicinal plants, using the top-secret technique of a
tier 5 alchemist.
“I simply can’t believe that an inconsequential apprentice alchemist
will be able to identify it!” Smiling coldly, Fan Xuzhong lifted his
chin and stood there, hands clasped behind his back as he looked at Meng
He could visualize his opponent with tears streaming down his cheeks,
racking his brains as he tried to identify the plant. He would probably
spout a bunch of nonsense, for which Fan Xuzhong had already prepared
appropriate words of response.
Everything was completely quiet. All eyes were focused on the medicinal
plant. Because of the vague sense of danger it emanated, everyone was now
paying close attention to it. Gradually, the medicinal aroma wafting out
from the plant vitalized the minds of all present.
“What medicinal plant is that!?!?”
“I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen it before, although something
about it seems familiar. How strange!”
Even the tier 1 alchemists were all frowning and trying desperately to
recall what this plant was. Some people even pulled out jade slips
containing information about plants and vegetation, which they began to
search through for clues.
“That plant is even more mysterious than the Wind Spirit Grass from
before!!” As the members of the audience began to speculate further
about the plant, Meng Hao looked at it, and his eyes began to shine.

“I never imagined that the Fang Clan’s Dao of Alchemy Division would
be so skilled with plants and vegetation,” he said. Immediately, the
audience went silent, and everyone looked at Meng Hao.
Fang Xuzhong laughed coldly.
“Can you identify it, or not? There’s no need to be deliberately
Meng Hao chuckled in response.
“This medicinal plant is something I doubt you could grow,” he said.
When the onlookers heard this, they didn’t think too much of it.
However, Fang Xuzhong’s heart began to thump.
“It has no name,” Meng Hao continued slowly. “Or, perhaps you could
say… the only person qualified to name it, is the alchemist who created
When Fan Xuzhong heard this, his face flickered. Meng Hao’s two
sentences were like lightning bolts striking his brain. How could he ever
have imagined that his opponent would be able to pick up on the clues
with just a glance? He quickly prepared to retrieve the plant and put it
away, since Meng Hao’s first two sentences had already revealed the
truth regarding the name of the plant.
He recalled how the first time he had ever laid eyes on this plant years
ago, he had stared in shock. To him, it had seemed like some strange and
miraculous item. It wasn’t until the tier 5 alchemist explained the
plant to him that he understood the truth, and prostrated himself in
“Just how skilled is this Fang Hao?” he thought. “He actually
recognized the plant! Dammit! No, I really have to pull a fast one!”
Feeling more on guard than ever, he immediately had the urge to slander
his opponent. However, in the Dao of Alchemy Division, reputation was
extremely important, and with so many people looking on, word would
Fang Xuzhong gritted his teeth, and was just about to retrieve the
medicinal plant and put it away when suddenly, Meng Hao started talking

“This is a medicinal plant produced by a grafting technique. Let me
see…. It seems to be grafted from nineteen different medicinal plants.
Those nineteen plants consist of Watershed Root, Spiritdream Grass, Mount
Heaven Leaf, Mortality Bloom….” Meng Hao calmly listed all nineteen
varieties of plants.
Fang Xuzhong’s eyes widened, and he began to pant. He subconsciously
staggered backward several steps, his expression one of disbelief. As for
the next plant he had planned to pull out, Meng Hao had just mentioned it
in the list he had rattled off, so Fang Xuzhong had no choice but to
abandon any idea of using it. How could he have ever imagined that this
person could possibly…
Could possibly name all of the plants that made up the graft! Fang
Xuzhong’s mind was spinning. Of course, he couldn’t be absolutely
certain as to whether what Meng Hao had said was completely correct or
not, because only the tier 5 alchemist who created it would be able to
After all, this was… a top secret technique!
Eventually Meng Hao reached his conclusiion and said, “…afterwards,
use the magic of the four seasons, invert Yin and Yang, graft three
plants simultaneously. Combine all nineteen medicinal plants, do not
allow them to be touched by the sun, allow the Yin qi to coalesce, which
completes the process.
“Because this medical plant was created by grafting nineteen other
plants together, if it is used in pill concocting, there are many
possible transformations. An ordinary alchemist would probably be
incapable of using it to concoct anything at all. Presumably, the
alchemist who gave you this medicinal plant also gave you a pill formula
specifically designed to be used with it.
“Tell me, Alchemist Fang, am I correct?” Meng Hao smiled and looked
at Fang Xuzhong.
Meng Hao’s words were followed by deathly silence. Everyone was looking
at Fang Xuzhong, whose face flickered back and forth between various
emotions. He felt like lightning was crashing around in his head, and
without realizing it, he stepped backward. He was now looking at Meng Hao
with wide eyes, as if he were some type of evil spirit.
