With more than 1000 objects available in Minecraft, it is impossible to learn the properties of each one. However, there are some objects that are important, and we must know, so today we explain how to get and plant sugar cane in Minecraft.
What is sugar cane?
Sugarcane is a very common object in Minecraft, it is necessary to create paper and sugar. It’s an important building ingredient, and it’s along with wheat, potatoes, and carrots among the most important things we can grow in a Minecraft garden.
However, unlike wheat, potatoes, and carrots, Sugarcane it is also a block. You don’t need a hoe; you can put it on the ground directly, but only if you have a water block nearby.
By placing the sugarcane on a block of soil that is next to a block of water, it will start to grow, and it will become a sugarcane two or three blocks high. Then you can break it up and re-sow it, saving what is left over.
Sugar cane is very useful. As it is needed to make paper in a renewable way, it is by extension necessary to make or create books, maps and rockets. And sugar is necessary to make cakes and pies, and more importantly, it is necessary to create potions.
But before you make a sugar farm, you have to get the cane, and it is not always easy. If you are familiar with the game, you know that it only grows in dirt and sand, and that only grows if it is near the water.
How to find sugar cane
Sugarcane is quite common in the river biomes. So you can explore the map until you find a river, and then navigate the river until you see sugar cane, you will almost certainly find it at some point. Rivers are very important in your early Minecraft days, for this and several other reasons.
In theory, sugar cane is generated far more in desert biomes than in any other biomes that exist in Minecraft; but in practice this is not true, because in the desert there is usually not much water. But if you get a lake or river in the desert, it will almost certainly have sugar cane at some point.

How to plant sugar cane? How to make a farm?
Sugarcane can only be planted in a block of dirt or sand that is adjacent to a block of water. This means that a sugar cane farm requires much more water than a wheat, carrot or potato farm.
Since players generally put all their crops on the same farm, the most common is to create rows of water one block wide, and then rows of soil 4 blocks wide before another row of water 1 block wide.
Since water can moisten the sown soil even if it has normal soil in it, you can sow sugar cane in the row of soil adjacent to the water, and potatoes, carrots and wheat in the other 2.
However, the most practical would be plant the sugar cane on a farm for herself. To decide how to do this, you must effectively balance with difficulty in picking up the product.
A farm with one row of water and two rows of soil before another row of water is the easiest to build and maintain, but it is not very compact. On such a farm, there are only two blocks of land for each block of water.
The most compact farm is one with a checkerboard pattern, in which there is a block of water in the center and 4 of land around it. But such a pattern would be difficult to walk.
