I was thinking of sticking it in Day three, but after some thought, I decided to recommend day 5 for 1 major reason. The guide is about time management. Every flower you pick is one less item of another you don't. It gives more Sanity than you'll loose under normal situations, couple this with the fact that it rots even when not worn means that if you make it before need it, you end up "wasteing" part of it's effect than needed.Again though, this is all about time management, making the best of what you have. In the end, it really is up to the person and what they want to do (I'm with you by the way, I personally usually make them on the go, at least on normal runs).
