Description[edit | edit source]

A Potato Plant is a harvest-able plant which produces Potatoes. It cannot be found growing wild, but can be grown on Fertile Dirt by planting a Potato Seed. The growth of the plant progresses through 3 stages, starting from a seedling until reaching a full size mature plant. Growth stage 1 and 2 take 60 minutes each with a mature plant taking the total time of 120 minutes to fully grow. It is not possible to harvest a Potato Plant before it has fully grown.

Cultivation[edit | edit source]

To cultivate a Potato Plant the player must first acquire an Potato Seeds or a Potato, which is then crafted into Potato Seeds, in addition to a Gardening Hoe which is used for tilling the ground before planting the seeds. You can also use a shovel to dig the ground and then place the Fertile Dirt back into the hole. As of Alpha 15, fertilizer can be used to upgrade Fertile Dirt into Fertilized Dirt, which will increase the amount of potatoes that can be harvested from 2 to 4 per seed.

Ground Preparation[edit | edit source]

A Potato Plant is grown on Fertile Dirt and if the seeds are placed upon any surface the seedling will explode after a short time. Right clicking on any Grass or Dirt area with a Gardening Hoe will allow the player to till the ground turning it into Fertile Dirt ready for use. Furthermore, if left unused, the Fertile Dirt will eventually revert back to grass allowing Tall Grass to grow.

Planting[edit | edit source]

With the seed equipped in their characters hand the player must place the cross-hair over the piece of Fertile Dirt and plant the seed using the right mouse button. Upon doing so the player will see a new Potato Plant seedling appear on the piece of Fertile Dirt. The Potato Plant is now at the start of its growth cycle.

Growth Cycle[edit | edit source]

A Potato Plant has 3 stages of growth.

Stage 1[edit | edit source]

At this stage the Potato Plant is a newly planted seedling and is represented as such by a small seedling growing from the ground.

Stage 2[edit | edit source]

Upon reaching stage 2 the Potato Plant will grow to a height of one block and will show as a juvenile plant with new shoots.

Stage 3[edit | edit source]

This is the final stage of growth for the Potato Plant and it is now ready to harvest.

Harvesting[edit | edit source]

Harvesting a Potato Plant is very simple, the player only has to move the cross-hair over the plant and the option to harvest the plant using the E key (Default) will be shown on the screen.
