Farming Chlorophyte (Easy)
By Shiro___
Ah Chlorophyte, one of the best ores in the game. But it's hard to obtain! In this guide we will cover how to farm it easily and in the safety of a shelter!
Hello and welcome to my guide. We will be covering what Chlophyte is and how to farm it!
Chlorophyte is a hardmode ore that spawns in the underground jungle, at the rock and dirt layer.
It's an end game ore that behaves different than other ores in Terraria. This ore spreads or grows to nearby mud blocks. This makes farming the ore quite a good idea.
Chlorophyte "Math"
Chlorophyte has numerous items and tools, weapons, armor... to craft. All of these are usually
end-game items

That's why farming makes it a need.
Let's start with some "math"

In order to (naturally) grow, there has to be mud blocks and jungle grass in the vicinity. A block of jungle grass has a small chance of spawning Chlorophyte nearby.

In order to spread, Chlorophyte needs to meet some criteria:
Chlorophyte Ore will not grow or spawn if there are more than 25 Chlorophyte blocks around 30 tiles(blocks), or if there is more than 150 within 80 tiles.

Chlorophyte Farms
Given it's nature to naturally grow, Chlorophyte is a great farming ore.
In order to make a functional farm you need:
  • Mud
  • x1 Chlorophyte ore atleast
  • A safe place to farm (optional but highly recommended)
  • Space
  • Be underground (stone and dirt layer atleast)

To effectively farm it place a 5x5 mud block in the area you want to farm. Remove the middle block of mud and place Chlorophyte Ore right there. You need to make these "chunks" 30 blocks aside from others. This will give the ore a 92.5% conversion rate.

Chlorophyte will slowly start to grow if the farm is on the underground layer.
In order to achieve this, but with less space taken, , place 3x3 blocks of mud (again with ore in the middle) spaced 15 blocks away of other 3x3 blocks, will still give a 92.5% conversion rate.
Make sure there are no other Chlorophyte ores nearby (natural ones) otherwise it's likely you will have a less conversion rate.

M= Mud; C= Chlorophyte Ore
I hope you understanded everything and made a great farm out of this!
If not, feedback is good to have, and comment if you need further help, or even find mistakes in this guide!

I will usually have the exact same chlorophyte "cells," except i make 8-10 of them with just enough room to move between them and then go far away to another section of the underground and make another one.

Hello did you know if you deep in the jungle it is more common so the deeper you go the more common it gets and if you go to hell there should be a tunnel the leads to the jungle so now you at the deepest part of the jungle where the ore is most common just saying because this dose not work anymore.:steamhappy:

does the farm have to be in the jungle? do you have to defeat plantera? if so, then i have to rebuild it for the third time.. my first issue was i made a chloro farm in the space layer. second, i made it underground but in my base (which is now fully corrupt) in a (used to be hallow) ice biome, but now it's corrupt
