We use this plugin to allow crops to grow when chunks are unloaded.

OfflineGrowth is a plugin that allows crops to grow even if users are not online and chunks are not loaded. It seems like magic!

How it works?

When a chunk that contains plants is loaded, the plugin know how much time has passed since it was last unloaded. That way, plants can artificially grow in an instant when the chunk is loaded (users will think plants are growing natural).

Let’s see an example. Carrots takes 40 minutes on average to grow full:

  • If the chunk has been uninhabited for more than or equal to 40 minutes, carrots will grow to its full stage.
  • If the chunk has been uninhabited for 20 minutes, carrots will grow half of its full stage.
  • If the chunk has been uninhabited for 20 minutes AND carrots where on half of its full stage when the chunk was last unloaded, carrots will grow to its full stage.

Supported crops

  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Wheat

The rest of the crops are included on OfflineGrowth Pro version (waiting for approval on Spigot):

  • All saplings (oak, birch, spruce, jungle, acacia, dark oak). Even mega trees! (placing 4 spruce/jungle/dark oak saplings).
  • Cactus

  • Melon (stem and melon)
  • Pumpkin (stem and pumpkin )
  • Kelp
  • Weeping vines
  • Twisting vines
  • Bamboo


  • Absolutely no lag. Excelent performance.
  • Plug and play. No need to configure anything.
  • You can configure the time it takes a plant to grow full.
  • You can blacklist worlds where the plugin shouldn’t work.
  • Plenty of database configurations: JSON, MYSQL, MARIADB, MONGODB, SQLITE and POSTGRESQL.
  • Hooks with plugins (to make it even more optimized): BentoBox. You can request more.


  • OfflineGrowth works with crops that have been planted after OfflineGrowth have been installed. This is because planted crops are saved into a database.
