Flax Farming
Flax Farming.
Korben76Added by Korben76
RedPower2 adds Flax, a plant that can be farmed, yielding String rather than Wheat. Flax Seeds can be obtained by breaking tall grass, similar to regular seeds. Farming is also similar to wheat farming, except that flax can only be planted on hydrated farmland. Breaking the mature plant will give you some seeds and string. For optimum drops, use a Sickle.

Flax Seeds are a necessary ingredient in crafting Paint Cans. Flax can also be used as a decorative house plant.​​

A flax plant cannot have Bone Meal applied to it if it is past its initial stage of growth. This crop is similar to Sugar Cane in regards to harvesting: as long as the bottom portion of the plant remains intact, the plant will regrow.

Harvesting without a Sickle will cause Flax to drop approximately 2-3 String and 2-3 Flax Seeds. Harvesting with a Sickle will cause the Flax to drop between 3-4 Flax Seeds and around 4-5 String. Using Bone Meal and seeds, it will cost 52 EMC, while harvesting with a Sickle will give a return of 2-3 seeds (as one seed is required to replant) and 4-5 String. At the minimum, this will give 8-12 EMC through the seeds, and 48-60 EMC through the string. Therefore, farming Flax with Bone Meal and a Sickle will guarantee a profit.

    • I don't think they regrow like sugar cane does.
    • They do. It just takes them a stupid amount of time.

    • You could try making a farm underground? I've never had this problem.
    • you have to plant it on hydrated dirt which is the dark stuff
