Farming question?
« on: April 28, 2014, 10:04:57 PM »
Built me an indoor farm and was wondering if crops will only grow with natural light or can I use a sunblock or powered light to make crops grow?

light is not a factor in growth time at all, they can gorw in complete darkness.

the only issue is water, with out water they will not gorw at all ^_^

My point has finally been made ^_^ (viva la Agy!)

anywho

Under construction ^_^! (probably something spring/Doom Bee related XD) ^_^

I experimented and the crops away from the windows in the shadows did not grow. I put up sunblocks and they grew.

Luck of the moment? What's that supposed to mean? Anyway,  I know Agy was right and I remember Craig said all you need is water to make crops grow. But that doesn't explain what happened on my world.

For a crop to grow there must be:

1. At least one block of empty space above the crop.
2. Water no further than 4 blocks away.
3. At least level 8 sunlight or at least level 9 block light (torches, sun boxes, lava etc).

Not meant to be rude, haha. I mean it was a coincidence, but i guess Craig cleared things up.
