Efficient Farming and Greenhouse guide


#22

Pratically it acts like sunlight


#23

When I started playing years ago they would fall even if there was back wall. So I adapted my method to that and haven’t ever realized that that has been fixed! So that’s good to know


#24

I have never known this method before, then i tried it with coffee cherries and mangoes.
It works so well!!! I get friut like every 2 minutes!


#25

Yup! It’s a pretty great way to get fruit


#26

Does this work with tulips?


#27

Tulips have their own set growth cycles and only produce a seed and two bulbs or two bulbs depending on harvest. Growing them in a greenhouse doesn’t make a difference that I’ve noticed


#28

How? What makes it better?


About Cherry trees+more
#29

Basically the temperature. The more heat and light the better. But the difference isn’t that big at all


#30

What’s different about the harvest. Is there more of the fruit/plant? Is that why it’s better?


#31

Marginally. If you don’t limit the height the trees will grow taller at the equator because of the heat. But with this set up it really doesn’t matter. Like I said


#32

I’m just curious, but does the type of light matter? If I used a regular torch and an oil lamp on a orange tree, which one would be faster? Assuming you all use the same amount of light source.


#33

I don’t think it’s possible to get the same amount of light from torches as it is lanterns. I’ve never tried, but the more light the better. I always stick with the best light I have available to me. I never bother with torches, I hate the orange light that they give off


#34

One reason I asked is because long time ago, I thought it was the heat and the lanterns don’t give up much heat, so I always used torch. But above, they used “light” and they grow faster. Does the heat affect anything or it just light?


#35

I’ve used torches on a WFS world. You need a few, the more you have the better the tree grows.


#36

The fires provide the heat. Although after working on my new cloud world I’ll be switching to using steam engines cause there’s no risk of fire with those


#37

I think the brighter the light, the better.

Also, on a side note: I found out a long time ago that constant light not only speeds growth, it speeds up the entire life cycle. If plants/trees aren’t planted in compost, they grow faster, but they die faster too.


#38

I agree because photosythisis (green leaf) is fed by the sun and the sun ray is feeding to those plant’s leaves. And that how the plant survived.


#39

Big thanks to @PorkyTheChop for making a how to video of this! If you have all the supplies it takes about 5 minutes to build. See the video for an example of how to build it from start to finish!

This is my first attempt at a greenhouse, and it works fabulously! Added as many lights as I could fit here, and it generates like 10 oranges every 3 seconds (Even with the slow time on Basileus)!

Sorry for bump, by the way.

Great way to gather eggs of all types!
