The Modular Flower Pots mod gives you a better selection for crafting pots for planting and farming in Minecraft. It provides you with a more elegant solution to designing your gardens in a more compact structure. Plus you can also carve intricate designs in your newly crafted pots.
This mod adds a larger flower pot made from hardened clay, and includes stained versions as well. Pots start out empty when first placed, but can be filled with a few different substrates (dirt, sand, gravel, etc). Almost any in-game plant can be put in these flower pots, including double-height plants and crops. Most mod-added plants should also be compatible. Placing pots of the same color and substrate next to each other causes them to join into a continuous planter.
Note: This mod is superseded by the Garden Stuff Mod collection of mods.
You can either craft a soft pot from raw clay and fire it into a hardened clay pot, or craft a hardened pot from stained clay.
Pots can be made in any color with stained clay or they can be stained afterward with any dyes you want to choose from. This gives you great customizing options for marking your farms and gardens with color. You can also customize the size of your pot as well. Depending on what you place in it and the color will determine if the pot will be a single cube or many.
You can make wood posts now to accent your farm area and it also doubles as a new fence post. There are a few ways to craft these and they can also be cut naturally from smaller trees. Then just combine them with string to make posts. You can even form 4 wood posts back into a full wood block if desired.
To etch a design on a pot you can take a stamp found in dungeons or traded and apply it directly to raw pots in a crafting table. Or you can craft a pottery table that will save you a significant amount of materials. Typical pots will take 7 blocks of clay to craft. The pottery table will only need one block. Plus you can store all of your stamps in the table’s inventory so you won’t have to carry them around everywhere you go.
One of the neatest parts of this mod is altering the soil in a pot to match a desired biome. You can take a sample kit and test a specified biome’s soil. It’ll give you detailed information on the biome like temperature and rainfall. Then take that sample to your selected pot and make it take on the same traits. So now you can have a tiny frost biome in your desert homeland.
