So I started a new "play" world (I call worlds that I play on for long amounts of time, such as a few months, play worlds) today, and after chopping some trees down, I planted the saplings, waited out the night (Beds are for wimps. :tongue.gif:), and in the morning, two out of the 5 trees were grown. Then, I planted another sapling nearby, and it grew before the day was even over.
I remember trees taking forever to grow (3 - 4 Minecraft days), but it seems that they grow very quickly now. Is it just me, or is anyone else noticing this?
The average time for a tree to grow seems to be about 5 minutes. As far as I know, this has always been the same.
But you should have an abundance of bone meal quickly after starting a new world, so just use it.
Hmmm...Well if that's the case, bonemeal is pretty useless. The only other use is for dyes and using on wheat, but wheat is simply a secondary food source (Although I use bread for food more than pork).
