Minecraft grass growth tutorial step by step
Growing grass in Minecraft is genuinely not rocket science. Yes, it is true, it took me quite some time to figure out, but you can do it quite quickly once you learn the trick how to.
Grow grass in Minecraft with these five easy steps
If you want to grow grass within this game, your following criteria has to meet. Otherwise, you won’t be able to do it, no matter what you try.
- The dirt block has to be exposed to light at level 4 or even higher.
- There also has to be a dirt block, which already has grass, so technically, you need a grass block and adjacent to the dirt block.
- For the grass to grow, the grass block can’t be more away than just two levels away from the block where you would like to grow the grass.
- This is common sense, but there can’t be any lava blocks or water above the block with dirt.
- And lastly, the dirt has to be attached to the grass.
If you would like to speed up this process, you can. If you want to grow grass faster, all you need to do is surround the dirt with several grass tiles around it, and it will grow so much quicker. The time to grow will still be random, but it will take less time than if this trick is not used.
If the map has no grass blocks, can I grow grass?
I was researching this question last night. And it seems that unfortunately in Minecraft map, where there is no grass present, in the beginning, you are not able to grow grass with any method. Unless you use cheats, of course, but without tricks, there is no way how to grow grass in Minecraft map with no grass.
Minecraft how to grow underground grass tutorial
Several times I have thought about lightening somehow my underground base. Because it was dark and kind of depressing. I wanted to lighten it up. I have tried so many things, and none of them worked the way I would like to. Until a friend of mine showed me how can I in Minecraft grow grass in the underground, and I thought it would be cool to share this also with you, so you can get more out of this game and enjoy even your underground farms and bases.
How to do it?
First, you need to find your spot, where would you like to grow grass. Once you have that area, make sure it is all covered in dirt. Otherwise, you won’t be able to grow grass there.
Now you have to dig down, and this will take a while and preferably dig down a staircase. There is probably no work around this. So dig deep stairs until you find grass.
There is a good chance that you will found sand, which is not ideal, but not a deal-breaker. In case you find sand during digging down, you will need to replace the sand with dirt.
Finally, when you are deep enough and have found grass, start replacing your whole staircase with dirt blocks. Once you are done with this, the only thing that is left for you to do is waiting. Unfortunately, if you want to grow grass in Minecraft, you have to “play.” You will have to stay next to the grass for grass to grow and spread around the staircase. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the length of your staircase.
