Saradel has posted a video of a MASSIVE cacti farm. The video claims that the farm can produce 12 cacti blocks a second, and it took Saradel over 50 hours to complete the entire contraption.  

Farms are common place in Minecraft, however we have yet to see one as elaborate and well designed as this one!

You can learn more about cactus farming from the Minecraft Wiki.

No joke, right? I sort of wonder at which point did he say, "Alright, I think this might be enough.".

Is he planning on making a 1:1 scale sahara desert or what?

Well, personally, I know that I use about 18 cacti per second, so, unfortunately, this one just isn't big enough.

And I thought that my cactus farm was overkill! A stack a minute looks downright bush league now. :P

This looks very well designed.
I'm quite the shady customer.

If you want to see the actual mechanism, just skip the first 80% of the video. It's pretty, but has nothing to do with cactus farming.

Too bad it would've only taken 5 hours to do using Worldedit :)

this video is like 8 months old, I remember seeing this a while ago, why is it on the front page?<br /><br />the same thought pops into my head as it did when I first saw it....what do you do with all those cacti?

I don't see why everyone gets all giddy over cacti farms.  Cactus itself is pretty useless.



Posted 01 June 2011 - 11:55 PM

What do people need with this much cactus?

What would one do with all that cactus? *i magines giant world, made of nothing but cactus* This is also why we need that one mod that transports stuff into chests. I mean, if people do stuff like this in 53 hours, what could people do in weeks of playtime?

&quot;This is also why we need that one mod that transports stuff into chests.&quot; You mean like Buildcraft?

When Notch comes up with something really useful for cacti, this guy is going to be King.

Some one please tell me if what I just said makes sense. I just got off a really long shift and my reading comprehension is poop right now. It isn't making sense in my head. sleep time

This is so impressive , i might make one like this but... i am really lazy , also that cacti has only 2 uses. and those uses are not that good , but if notch added a really great use for cacti i will start doing something like this!

Well, I think this is not well designed. From one of the comments I just read this is pretty old, so that's actually not bad at the time. Much better designs have been discovered already.
