I know that not watering crops will slow their growth and eventually kill them. Does this apply to freshly planted seeds as well? Is there any benefit to watering seeds I just planted or should I wait until they sprout?

1 Answer 1


The seeds will turn into seedlings the next day, if you water them. So it is recommended to water in order to start growth immediately.

    So if I don't water freshly planted seeds, will they die or just take longer to turn into seedlings?

    It will just take longer to turn into seedlings; delayed one day if you water the next day. Oct 10, 2016 at 3:45
