A new Minecraft player has gone viral after they overcomplicated the tree-growing process, creating a special one-block environment in the hopes a lone sapling would grow quicker.
Everyone has teething issues when they start learning Minecraft. Given the sheer number of things you have to learn to get properly started, like finding food, building basic utilities and gathering materials, every player has made an incorrect assumption about how the game works.
This is no less true for mechanics like farming. Setting up some sort of local farm enables players to easily gather food without having to exterminate the nearby wildlife.
Seasoned Minecraft players will know there is a big difference between how trees and food grow. Unfortunately for one new player, they got their wires crossed.
Farming is one of Minecraft’s most important mechanics.
Redditor u/SpaceBoiArt posted an image of his friend’s attempt to plant a tree on the r/Minecraft subreddit, and the post has exploded to over 45k upvotes.
The image shows the oak sapling placed on a fertile hoed dirt patch, with a single block water source next to it.
The player had clearly assumed planting trees echoed the farming mechanic, where players need to right-click on a patch of grass and place water nearby for it to become fertile. This allows players to grow seeds into wheat or multiply their carrots.
This player’s tree planting was slightly too logical.
Seasoned Minecraft players will know, however, that you can just stick a sapling on any patch of grass. Then, provided it has enough space, it will spontaneously bloom into a harvestable source of wood.

Day one recap: Didychrislito sets a marker as favorites cruise through
Day one was a day for the favorites as there were no major upsets in the eMLS League Series 2 Quarter-Finals. There were plenty of cagey affairs, kicked off by BenR scraping a late 1-0 win in the first game with xbLeU. Though, the Austin FC representative struck back in a pulsating 6-4 second leg, scoring two late goals to bag a 6-5 aggregate win.
The action did slow down a notch in the following games. DC United’s KingCJ0 surprised the viewers by putting KidM3Mito to the sword. He bagged early goals in the first legs, finishing up with a 3-1 win. CJ was cruising in leg two before two late consolations goals from Chicago Fire’s King M3Mito made it a respectable 5-3 aggregate scoreline.
From there, it was slightly plainer for the favorites. FC Dallas’ AlanAvi made sure the Twitch chat bets cashed without much worrying, taking down Orlando City’s Maloney with ease in convincing fashion. The 24-year-old completely dominated both legs, finishing up with a comfortable 3-0 first-leg win before seeing out the return fixture with a 1-0 victory.
In the final clash of the day, Series One winner Didychrislito bagged his semi-final berth by dismantling FC Cincinnati’s Fiddle 7-2. The New York City star was in complete control across both games, going as far as rounding the ‘keeper to make a statement that he’s hungry for the Series Two title as well.

Day two recap: DidyChrisLito claims the crown
For the first time all weekend, a game could not be finished in normal time, as KingCJ0 progressed thanks to a dramatic penalty shootout. It was a tense meeting between the DC United man and FC Dallas’ AlanAvi, but after withstanding late pressure in the second leg, KingCJ0 held his nerves through 10 rounds of spot kicks, coming away with the 6-5 aggregate win.
League Series One winner DidyChrisLito continued where he left off from day one, dispatching of Austin FC’s xbLeU without too many issues. Chris fell behind early in both legs, but responded with crisp attacks to dispatch of his opponent by an 8-2 aggregate scoreline. xbLeU had no answer for DidyChrisLito’s threaded through balls and was unable to replicate the magic of late win over benR from day one.
The final was more of the same from the New York City FC man. He fell behind early in both games against KingCJ0 but got into his groove, striking back in both games. In the second leg, his championship experience really showed out though, fighting back from 2-1 down to win.
