    Source Code:
    Change the rate at which all plants can grow (and die) per biome and based on natural lighting! Great for roleplaying, territory control, and economy minded servers where food is terribly overabundant and too easy to get. Note: This plugin does NOT make plants grow faster, only slower. Additional mechanics include light level growth (block underground growing) and override mechanics with special, configurable blocks.

    The basics behind this plugin are designed to slow down or even disable the farming and growth of nearly every plant item in the game along with Biome specific support. Choose which Biomes and light level certain plant types can grow, and at what rates they can grow. You can also configure a chance that some plants will even die! (Replaced by dead bush or vine). This will make tending to massive farms more difficult, balancing your servers food economy and making the game more enjoyable for those who like a bit more realism and challenge.

    Carrots, Melons, Wheat, Sugar Cane, Trees and more! The way this plugin works is that it checks for when a plant is about to grow, then based on your configuration settings it gives that growth event a chance to succeed or fail. If it fails, it also has a chance to die!
    • Looking to block farming NetherWart entirely or restrict it to the Nether only like it used to be?
    • Want to make some things like Melon farms less overpowered?
    • Want to force Cocoa to only grow in the Jungle?
    • Want to make desert growth rates lower than other areas?
    • Want to make buckets pour water like real life buckets
    • Want to make farms be above ground and under natural lighting?
    This is the plugin for you!

    • Configurable by plant type.
    • Enable, disable or set a percentage of default for each plant's growth.
    • Configure specific plant types that aren't commonly made available by other farming plugins (such as cactus, sugar cane and specific tree types)
    • Whitelist Biomes that a plant can grow in.
    • Add a configurable chance of death (plant dies and in some cases turns into a dead shrub).
    • Configurable Per Biome for each plant type.
    • Adjust the behavior of water source blocks in buckets and dispensers.
    • Configurable natural light level.
    • Give priority growth rates to certain biomes in outdoor farms while hampering growth rates in poor biomes and underground, great to get players out of their caves and into the world!
    Simply place the PwnPlantGrowth.jar into your plugins folder and run your server! If you are upgrading from a previous version, it is a good idea to copy and delete your config.yml and regenerate a new one in case something has changed.


    • For each plant type, set the percentage from 0 to 100. 0 will disable the plant type from growing at all. 100 will allow plants to grow at their normal rate. The lower you set this number, the less likely the plant will be to grow.
    • For each plant type, set a death percentage like above. This is a chance of death only if the above fail chance is successful. For example, if growth percent is 50% and death percent is also 50%, then the overall chance a plant has of dying is 25%.
    • For each plant type, set a whitelist of biomes in which it can grow. And empty set means it can grow anywhere. Empty set looks like []
    • For each plant type, configure option specific set of biomes, with their own growth and death rates.

    This is an excellent plugin that I'm using on 1.17.1, and it is a very important part of encouraging player to player trades and interactions for certain foods and materials!

    My only concern right now is that there are some issues with the growths of multi-block, slow growing plants like sugarcane and bamboo. When these plants "die" it only kills the top most block, resulting in mass amounts of sticks rather than killing the plant at it's lowest block.

    I'm looking forward to an update for an update for 1.18, and I know that tremor expects the current version should work for 1.18. The only concerns they have right now are the newly added biomes and plants in 1.18. Hopefully a new update is on the horizon!

    I have been using this plugin since 2015 (yes, it didn't appear on Spigot right away, it was on Bukkit). It perfectly adds realism and RP to the server. On my server, plants grow at different rates depending on the biome, and some even grow only in some specific biomes. The growth rate itself is greatly reduced. This all leads to incentives for players to trade and exchange with each other. I remember that at first many players protested against such innovations, but over time, everyone appreciated the more interesting and interconnected game experience that this plugin provides.

      Thanks, probably no ratings because I just added it to the spigot site recently, been available on bukkit for awhile.
