Botania PE is a tech mod with a theme of natural magic. The idea is to use flowers and plants to generate Mana. The Mana can then be used to power other flowers in their production of making other things.
Different plants generate Mana from different power sources such as sunlight and water. In the mod there is a helpful book called Lexica Botania which you should read to understand how to craft and use the new blocks and flowers. We’ve also made a guide which you can use here down below.
How to make flowers?
To create a flower you will need petals and a Petal Apothecary block. The Apothecary block is crafted with 1 White Petal, 2 Cobblestone Slabs and 4 Cobblestones.
To activate the block and make it work you need to fill it up with a bucket of water.
To get petals you need to put vanilla flowers in a crafting table. To then create the actual flowers tap with the items listed below to start making the Botania flowers:
- Pure Daisy = 4 Mystical White Petals
- Hydroangeas = 4 Mystical Blue Petals
- Daybloom = 4 Mystical Yellow Petals
- Orechid = 4 Mystical Red Petals
- Agricarnation = 4 Mystical Green Petals
How to make Mana?
The two Mana production flower types are Hydroangeas and Daybloom. Lets have a look at how these two flowers work.
Hydroangeas is a plant which need a water source nearby to start produce Mana. To get the process going simply tap the flower.
Daybloom uses sunlight to produce Mana. To start the process tap the flower.
How to transport/extract Mana?
Mana itself in a flower is completely useless to us unless we can extract and use it for our own gain. Lets have a look at how this transport actually works.
Mana Spreader is a new block which can be crafted from 6 Livingwood, 1 Gold Ingot and 1 Mystical White Petal. If you place a Mana Spreader next to an ongoing Mana production it will start to transport Mana to a nearby Mana Pool.
Mana Pool is as mentioned above used in the transportation of the Mana. It is crafted with 5 Livingrock and put next to a Mana Spreader and then all you have to do is tap it to start fill it with Mana.
How to use Mana?
Once you have completed the process of producing and transporting Mana it is ready to be used. Here is an explanation of what some of the flowers can be used for.
If you place an Orechid nearby a full Mana Pool and then tap on it then the Orechid will start producing ores nearby the same location. The ores include coal, iron and gold.
