Why do my trees keep dying?

I have this farm right here:

And I’ve regualrly found that despite being heated, sealed, and well lit, that they keep dying. So far it’s only happened with a row of limes, both mango levels, and it’s started on one of the coffee cherry trees.

Is there a solution to this that i’m not seeing, or what?

Trees die of old age

Plant them in compost.


NEW PIC!!! :heart:

They are.

It’s probably the back wall, or they don’t have enough light.

Don’t see how. Each is getting it from 2 campfires and 6 oil lanterns at any given time. See this thread for reference:
Farming model-1

If they’re planted in compost and still die then the conditions are probably wrong. Too cold, too dark, etc. are possible reasons.

If we get a couple closer pictures, as well as hear about the climate outside, that may help.

Isn’t that on Survival of Time? Certain trees and plants don’t do well in the cold.

Yes, it’s on SoT.

I don’t have a thermometer, but my best guess is that the temperature is approximately 1 Kelvin.


Are there thermometers in the new update?

Umm no

Since this is underground… I don’t think heat is the issue. I did a… lot… of experiments with heat and it seems to be constant underground (when ignoring the edge cases of very near lava & very near the surface)

The only thing I can really think of here is that the light isn’t coming through the blocks in the tree’s calculation - maybe trees need direct access? If you remove the blocks separating the trees from the lights, do they still die?

Haven’t tried it, though I fear it’ll ruin the aesthetic. ;-;

Now the limes are dying. ;-;

I’ll make sure to test out the thingy with the glass blocks tomorrow to see if it still happens.
