Crops not growing

Discussion in 'Community Discussion' started by KiashiSama, Jun 10, 2012.

  1. Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well today.

    I did a search first and didn't find anything about this, but if I missed it and there was a thread/solution about this, please post the link.

    I have my crops growing underground in my lot and for some reason a small section will not grow or allow me to plant seeds.

    1. As shown in the wheat picture, there is a small section that, when I plant seeds, they either pop back out or disappear completely. So I can't plant or grow anything in that part.

    2. In the picture with the pumpkins and melons, I planted all those seeds at the same time and that small section will not grow at all.

    It's not like this is a major issue and I can live without that section growing, but was just curious if anyone else had this problem or is it just a glitched chunk/block area.

    Thanks for your time and enjoy your day!

  2. I dont know about the problem but cool texture pack
  3. if its underground and will not allow to plant seeds, trying placing a torch or other light source closer to those areas. It may just need more light.

  4. Exactly! I was having this exact issue where seeds either wern't growing or they would mysteriously pop back out it turned out to be a lighting issue. If you would like to take a look at how I resolved this issue please visit my res; 9088 on SMP4. To find my farm go down the steps ont clock tower, head past the donate chests and continue down the steps until you find a massive farm lit up by gliwstone! DON'T GO DOWN THE LADDER TOMY SHEEP FARM!
  5. Lighting? How would lighting prevent a seed to be planted? I can understand lighting not allowing the seed to grow, but for placing it? I think I have plenty of lighting.... I used jack-o-lanterns for the ceiling (since they are similiar to glowstone value) and I have torches around the area.

    @redwing its the Sphax PureBDCraft texturpack :D

  6. If the seeds disappears or "popup" - its due to lighting or water needs.

    Water must be within 3 blocks of the seed - if not, then you need more light.
  7. this does happen to me. but rarely. i fix it by putting glow stone on the ceiling.
  8. Ok, derp moment. :p

    You guys were right and that's why this community is Awesome!

    Thanks for the help!

  9. One might say, we showed her the light. :D
  10. perhaps the ceiling is too high for the lighting to compketly reach. Setiously check out mine! I am positive it will help!
  11. What texture pack do you use Kia?
  12. @ICC - LOL, kind of opened that one up, didn't I
    @Terr - Sphax PureBDCraft texturpack
    @Stads - Ok, I'll check it out.

    Thanks again!

  13. and if i may suggest, make the ceiling 2 blocks high. so you cant jump and uproot the wheat or seeds
