Minecraft Monday- Cactus Farming

Minecraft_Monday_Cactus_Farming

Hey! Today I’m going to teach you about cactus farming. Now, efficient cactus farming is a little tricky, because to do it correctly you need to build a special type of farm. It’s not very complex, but it is hard to explain. So I’ll try to explain it the best I can. Just so you know, it might take a little while to work out all the kinks, and everyone does it a little differently. 

First, you’ll want to make a sort of shell by digging out a hole big enough to make enough space for cacti, you’re gonna want to place the cactus at least 1 block apart, and then fill the hole with water. Next, you’re going to make a row of a block on 1 side, and behind a row that’s 2 blocks high. Then put a piston on the 1 block row behind each cactus, and on the 2 block row put a lever behind each piston. 

When you want to harvest the cactus you simply right click the lever to push the piston and cat off the second block of the cactus. See, when something touches the cactus it will destroy it and every cactus block on top of it; and since you put it on the row of blocks except for the bottom. Then the cactus will begin it’s growing cycle again, and you won’t even have to replant.
