If I place a villager next to my crops, will it grow while I'm gone?

  1. Currently I'm trying to make a farm in the frontier. But I want my crops to grow while I'm gone, so I thought of placing a villager (or an neutral mob) next to the farm to make the crops grow. Will this work?

    Thanks for responding if you do.
  2. Everything like redstone, crop growth, mob movement and other things that are running, do not run when the chunks aren't loaded. So for example, having a redstone line go too far will not work in chunks that aren't loaded. Same applies for crops growing, they won't grow if a player isn't around them.
    PenguinDJ, TomvanWijnen and FDNY21 like this.
  3. Nfell is right about the chunks - this means that to get your crops to grow, either you, an alt or another player needs to be in the chunk where the crops are :)
  4. Of course I'm right. I'm always right.
