Flowers are useful for decoration, dyes, and breeding rabbits and bees.
To grow flowers, you can use bone meal on a grass block. The block must either have no block above it (which is obstructing sun / moonlight), or be lit with a light level of at least 8. Flowers and tall grass will spread over grass blocks up to 7 blocks away in both directions (a 15×15 square). However, approximately 95% of growth occurs within a 4-block radius (a 9×9 area) around the source grass block.
The types of flowers that spawn depend on the biome. See flower biomes.
Two-high flowers cannot be grown this way at all; instead, they can be farmed by applying bone meal directly to them, which causes an item to drop.
If the planting conditions are not met, flowers will quickly pop out. This allows flowers to be used in the creation of light-sensitive mechanisms.
Poppies are also a byproduct of iron farms, as iron golems will (apart from the iron) drop 0-2 poppies on death.
Poppies spawn much less frequently than dandelions. They are the most abundant in Mountains biomes, but are also somewhat common in Taiga and Tundra biomes.
The Earthquake Technique [ edit ]
Another technique for automated farming is to shift the ground beneath the flowers with pistons.
The general idea is to have a redstone clock trigger the following three events in order:
- A dispenser dispenses bone meal into the grass from below to produce flowers.
- A set of pistons pushes the ground one block horizontally
- Another set of pistons pushes the ground back to the original position.

Minecraft Super-fast Dye Farm Tutorial
Introduction: Minecraft Super-fast Dye Farm Tutorial
Hi everyone, in this tutorial I will be showing you a design for an ultra fast and resource friendly dye farm for minecraft version 1.8.
Step 1: Starting Off
To make this you will need: a dispenser, redstone dust, a repeater, 2 of any block type and optionally a chest and hopper.
Put down the 2 blocks with the dispenser on top.
Step 2: Redstone
Place about 5 redstone dust behind the dispenser then 2 repeaters opposite each other with dust connecting them.
Step 3: Setting It Up
Set the redstone pulse going by placing and breaking a redstone torch next to one of the dust.
Step 4: Growing the Flowers
To give the machine more storage, place a hopper on top of the dispenser with a chest onto of that.
Load it up with bonemeal, place a two block high flower directly in front of it and just let the flowers flow into your inventory.Minecraft Super-fast Dye Farm Tutorial: Hi everyone, in this tutorial I will be showing you a design for an ultra fast and resource friendly dye farm for minecraft version 1.8. ]]>
