Farming Basics[edit]

To start farming, the player will need a Gardening Hoe, and some Seeds to plant. Right click on a dirt block with a Gardening Hoe so as to till the land. It is then possible for the player to plant crops by right clicking in the center of the tilled land while holding the correct Seeds. If done correctly a small green seedling will appear on the tilled soil. Seeds can be obtained by simply placing the relevant vegetable into the center of the crafting table or by chopping down trees. The exception to this are Coffee Beans which can be planted as is.






  • Some dirt looks to be tilled, but actually are not. This may result in some plants uprooting itself out of tilled dirt (may be a bug).
  • Plants require sunlight to grow - torchlight will not permit growth underground. You can get around this by building secure skylights directly above your growth areas when growing underground. However, this means that plants will not grow at all during night.
  • As of Alpha 9, water is no longer required for farming.
