Flax Farming

A Flax Farm.

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 Flax is similar to Wheat Farming, except that Flax can only be planted on Hydrated Farmland. Breaking the mature plant will give you some Flax 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 Bonemeal 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 Flax without a Sickle will cause the plant 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 Bonemeal and Flax Seeds, it will cost 52 EMC, while harvesting with a Sickle will give a return of 2-3 Flax Seeds (as one of the seeds 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 Bonemeal 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
