Talk:Wheat Seeds

In the section about harvesting, it states that crops harvested between stages 5-6 may drop seeds- I've had them not drop seeds and drop wheat sometimes. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Redmom11 (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~ (July 3, 2011)

I don't see the difference between growing conditions and growth. shouldn't these two things be merged or all the content about light and water be moved into growing condition? –The preceding unsigned comment was added by jony1710 (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~ (March 11, 2011)

"~Till Grass~ will make farmland like dirt." Is that supposed to read "Tall Grass" or "tilled grass" or what? –The preceding unsigned comment was added by DizzieDawgie (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~ (May 29, 2011)


Wasn't sure if there were enough seed pages for it to have its own line on the Block and Item templates. I'll leave that for the regulars to decide. --Ecksearoh 16:40, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Are seeds blocks or items? Because this page uses the Block template, but the pumpkin one uses the Item template. - Asterick6 03:28, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Seeds are an item, but when placed make a block (similar to beds, minecarts, etc.) Cool12309(T|C) 03:32, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Uh. Minecarts are an entity, not a block. When seeds are placed they instantly become a wheat block. A seed block doesn't exist. --HexZyle 03:58, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
A bed block does. Cool12309(T|C) 04:02, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
What about pumpkin and melon seeds? What happens to those? (btw do replies show up in your talk page if you put it right under the previous comment?) - Asterick6 04:03, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
I would like a Plant template that show information of plant species including seeds item, crops/stems blocks, fruit blocks, products. - Karyonix 15:13, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Help me[edit]

Hi, am kind of new, but I need help, because i want to get wheat, but I am trying to plant wheat seedsm but they dont come out... Thank you, --Merbat 18:31, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Too Many seeds[edit]

Every time I go to gather wheat from my farm, I end up with twice or three times as many seeds as I have wheat bundles. I now have a chest full of seeds. Other than throwing them into a lava pool, is there anything for which seeds, of any plant, can be used? Potions? Soups? Anything?

Decoration? IIRC, seeds only grow if the block above them is transparent, so you can stop seed growth at any stage for purposes of decoration simply by placing a non-transparent block above them. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:12, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
And now you can use them to breed chickens. Also, if you're getting 2-3 times as many seeds as wheat after replanting, you may be harvesting too early -- unripe plants will drop only seeds, no wheat. --Mental Mouse 01:49, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

No rename[edit]

I think renaming this page is unnecessary. In Xbox 360 Edition, these seeds are named "Wheat Seeds", so the name is officially used in Minecraft.-- 12:01, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Pocket Edition[edit]

Question: Has any thought been put into adding a section to each page for variants of the game? For example, the way you harvest wheat seeds in PE is much different than the regular version (PE requires using a hoe on normal grass versus tall grass or wheat in the other versions of the game), so why not have a section at the end of the wheat seeds page noting this? Just a thought. 00:25, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Farming mania[edit]

My garden needs constant attention and takes up the whole day? Is there a way to automaticly tend my farm? -- 21:06, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Check out the farming Tutorials -- they give a lot of automatic farming plans. You still need to do planting and (except chickens) breeding by hand, but with hoppers, autoharvesting is a breeze nowadays. --Mental Mouse 00:06, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Rename to "Wheat Seeds"[edit]

Just like how "End Portal" has been renamed to "End Portal Frame" to avoid issues and confusion, I propose to rename this page to "Wheat Seeds". It's named like that in the console editions so it's an official name. -- 11:19, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

 Support - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 12:24, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Continued  Support, due to the item being renamed in 18w20a. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 18:54, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

 Disagree Its in-game name in the PC and pocket editions is "seeds". In the case of similar titles, use {{about}}. –LauraFi - talk 12:40, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

So why did you change the name of the End portal frame page? It's called "End Portal" on PC. You should move it again to "End Portal" then. -- 14:20, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Because "End Portal" is the official name of all of three of the frame block, the technical portal block, and the structure, meanwhile "Seeds" is just one official name and one unofficial category name which can easily be stated as "any type of seed". "End Portal Frame" is more official than a disambig name such as "End Portal (frame)", and the title "End Portal" is best used by the structure (as that is the most useful feature containing that name). KnightMiner t/c 20:42, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

 Disagree per LauraFi. -BDJP (t|c) 13:59, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

 Disagree While both official names, "Seeds" is used in more editions. Use the disambig page in case of confusion with other seeds, or "any type of seeds" to refer to seeds as a whole. KnightMiner t/c 20:42, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

 Oppose per reasons that commenters have stated already.  Support once 1.13 is released. I prefer that articles use the in-game term that is used in the most editions whenever possible, except when there are two features with the exact same name.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 19:23, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Planting in the dark[edit]

The article says "If the light level is too low, it's impossible to plant seeds." I know this isn't true for Bedrock—they can be planted but will pop off the first time the block gets a random tick—and I think it's also kind of false for Java, because there are fully automatic crop farm designs that depend on tricking a villager to plant on a too-dark block (but maybe it never really gets planted, I'm not sure). Is this statement obsolete? Is it still true for Legacy Console? – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 17:32, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Is it still true on Legacy Console? No, it isn’t, it follows Bedrock’s behaviour. --Giorgosarv18 (talk/contribs) 17:41, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Seet drop rate changed?[edit]

The drop rate for seeds when breaking fully grown wheat seems to have been changed, as it is now possible to get 4 seeds out of one plant (without a fortune tool). Can someone confirm this or find additional info, f.e. the version this was changed?

--Sirsiros (talk) 22:20, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

This was introduced in 1.14. I haven't tested for distribution, but average drop rate is 2.5 seeds per broken fully grown wheat block. -Anon 08:02, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
