This tutorial seeks to teach you how to farm kelp, which are plants that are naturally found underwater.
Kelp grows similarly to sugar cane. One stem block can be placed underwater, and then it will spontaneously grow upwards until the top of the kelp is one block below the water surface.
Kelp can be manually farmed by placing kelp, waiting for it to grow and then breaking the kelp block above the bottom one to allow it to keep growing.
Kelp can be automatically farmed by detecting when it grows and then breaking the second-to-bottom block. This can be extended indefinitely upwards because kelp will keep growing until it can no longer do so.
Update: Kelp has a grow limit not defined by water depth but by a number. You can see this number by pressing F3.
