Biome Growth Controls Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 disables sapling and plant growth per Biome. When a sapling (or some crops) are about to grow (from nature, or from bonemeal, or any source) it first checks the biome.

  • If growth is disabled according to the config rules, nothing happens. You can decide if the stunted growth stays there or breaks itself.
  • In 1.12.2 and going forward, the “auto planting/growing” feature for despawning items is not part of this mod. Also, the mod ID has changed between the Minecraft version.
  • 1.14.4 supports two block types, saplings, and crops, and also interacts with bonemeal correctly.

In the newest versions, all of the above biomes are listed in the config file, so you can customize this any way you wish, and also use the Nether/ The End / and biomes from mods. See the config file for details.

This mod also tries to spawn sapling items that are about to despawn, if they are on grass/dirt. This end up mimic-ing natural forest growth, if you chop down trees but the leaves despawn naturally, and then trees just grow. This is also controllable in the config file.
