The Druid now has it's own Prestidigitation as well! And, of course, lots of other new spells too...

Druidcraft
Transmutation cantrip
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Instantaneous
Whispering to the spirits of nature, you create one of the
following effects within range:
You create a tiny, harmless sensory effect that predicts
what the weather will be at your location for the next
24 hours. The effect might manifest as a golden orb
for clear skies, a cloud for rain, falling snowflakes for
snow, and so on. This effect persists for 1 round.
You instantly make a flower blossom, a seed pod open,
or a leaf bud bloom.
You create an instantaneous, harmless sensory effect,
such as falling leaves, a puff of wind, the sound of a
small animal, or the faint odor of skunk. The effect
must fit in a 5-foot cube.
You instantly light or snuff out a candle, a torch, or a
small campfire.

"You cause the pod to bloom. Poisonous spores erupt. You have awoken the baby Ochu. Roll for initiative." :smalltongue:

I like the weather predriction thing, that is very druid. The color coded glowing orbs, not so much. It should be something more subtle and personal that only the druid can see and interpret, a "feel it in my bones" kind of thing, more of a natural instinct than a flashy arcane looking special effect.

The firestarter feels wrong as well. I'd replace it with two seperate abilities, calling up gloworms as a lightsource and drawing warmth from the earth itself. Just straight up making fire from nothing is literally capital I Invocation.

I doubt you would find many DMs who would disallow your version. I mean, that's subtle enough that it would be fine in organized play.
