What makes grass grow?
Posted 23 September 2010 - 08:26 PM
Plain and Simple, what causes dirt blocks to grow grass on them?
I know they need light, from what Iv read about trees, torches will work for this (tho iv used sunlight thus far). But Iv built floating islands that never grow grass. Iv built dirt areas on the ground that have never grown grass. iv got several experiments going on now to see what it requires, almost all of them are failers.
The only thing so far that seems to make grass grow is if the dirt block is touching another dirt block that has grass on it, and I dont know if thats just coincidence or what.
I have several theorys and experiments going to test, But im getting no where so I just thought I would ask.

I request photographic evidence or I'll be forced to state that what you claim to have occurred, did not, in fact, transpire at all.

I dont think you can have grass grow 2 blocks high from dirt like the guide says. I have several pillars of 2 block high dirts setting around with 8 blocks of grass around the base (9 if the block there setting on counts) Basically this;

Maybe the way grass grows has changed sense the guide was made.
Also I dont know exactly what "level 4 lighting" is but the moon must give off at least that much.

I think it requires light, AND there must be an adjacent dirt block that has grass. Thats why grass wont grow on the top block in that diagram, because it is more than 1 block away from dirt that has grass.
