For a game of survival, vanilla minecraft is still fairly light on things you can grow. Sure there’s a bunch of stuff you can shove in the ground and wait for, but any gardener worth their salt will tell you that there’s more to growing trees and edible vegetables than just smushing bits of plant into the soil.
This mod allows you to do all sorts of things a real green thumb person can do – like seed minecraft grass from a block of dirt. All it takes is four pieces of bonemeal and four seeds and baby, you got yourself a lawn going. The mod also adds the ability to craft mycelium blocks which are usually only found in incredibly rare mushroom biomes. To craft a mycelium block you need four bonemeal, two crushed red mushrooms and two crushed brown mushrooms.
Which brings us to the new items this mod adds to the game. Crushed mushrooms are craftable items. They are crafted with a piston, so be careful to get the bits of stone and wood out before growing your mycelium culture.
Craftable saplings are also included, as is the ability to reverse craft a sapling, resulting in one block of wood and six sticks.
This mod also includes a bunch of other craftable blocks, none of which have anything to do with growing plants or having a green thumb. Download this mod and you’ll be able to craft the following items usually only available in survival mode:
