Bonsai Pots

Grow your very own Bonsai version of plants, a small automatic farm to let your inner self decorate as you want

Works for minecraft java 1.16 - 1.17 +

Setup Bonsai:
  • place a block (end stone if growing chorus)
  • put a hopper under that block (note: disabled hopper will not collect the loot)
  • put a pot on top of that block
  • place an item frame on 1 side of the block
  • put Diamond Axe / Netherite Axe into that item frame
  • fill the pot with plant that you want to farm
  • and now you can channel the drops into chest storage
  • all 6 types of trees + Azalea, Flowering Azalea
  • 2 normal shrooms and 2 nether fungi
  • also grows: Fern, Dead Bush, Cactus, Bamboo and Chorus Flower
  • grows faster: Amethyst, Pointed Dripstone
  • Calcite / Diorite when: Amethyst, Pointed Dripstone is waterlogged
  • Amethyst Buds when 4x Amethyst Shards are thrown into waterlogged Amethyst

Works with:
  • all* other datapacks
  • in singleplayer
  • in multiplayer
  • download this datapack
  • put it in words datapacks folder

Does this work in 1.17? because no matter how i went about trying to force it to work (zipped, unzipped, cheats on, reload 10+ times) it just didnt do a thing. Do i have to have turn on daylight cycles?

it 100% works for minecraft java release 1.17.0 and does not require anything else.

try running /function fafik77:bonsai_pots/load as some people reported that some datapacks dont want to auto load.
also make sure that hopper is not locked by redstone signal, item frame with axe is placed on block between hopper and pot, and that your potted plant is listed in Grows section

There is a way if you are willing to edit one file.
  1. extract the Bonsai Pots.zip into Bonsai Pots (folder)
  2. go into "data\fafik77\functions\bonsai_pots\on_clock\bonsai.mcfunction"
  3. comment or delete the lines that don't interest you (you will need to use some better text editor then Notepad / or download the updated datapack)
list of shrooms: potted_red_mushroom, potted_brown_mushroom, potted_crimson_fungus, potted_warped_fungus

If I want to grow the normal shrooms I need the Mycelium or the Grass?

And wdym for "Bushes"?

Also if I want to plant the cacti I need to use the sand or the Grass?

anything you can place in the pot does not require any special block bellow it, the chorus is an exception as it can not be planted in the pot(would be funny if it could) and thus requires End Stone underneath.
for "Bushes" check Dead Bush

if you have set it up the way its supposed to be then check:
  • are you playing the newest Release of minecraft Java Edition
  • have you placed the datapack in the proper location
  • have you reloaded the world after adding the datapack (exiting and entering world, or /reload)
  • are you sure the hopper is NOT powered by redstone
and a question: what Tree have you placed in the pot?
