    Not really. With, at the very least, like 6 people attacking others all the time, you're looking at over 1mil a month at least for "end protection"

    Depends though. End farming's 50k an hour versus 25k for eff7 mining.

    At 1mil to buy everyone off (I think you could probably manage it cheaper though), you break even at 40 hours.

    $25k * 40 = $1000k = $1mil
    $50k * 40 = $2000k - $1000k = $1mil

    If you farm any more than 40 hours a month, it's worth it.

    If you prefer to make money melon farming at 20k/hr it's even less time to break even and profit.

    Fruit makes money. Flower makes more flowers which in turn make money.

    Not much at all for flowers since you can't /sell them, and they aren't in much demand. @Nicit6 said this earlier in the thread for fruit:
    All you need from it is as muchas $50k per hr

    You really need both farms.
    As the fruit farm grows, you go harvest flowers for future fruit farming.

    Fruit farming is very high risk - especially during the peak times of the day.
    You could lose all your fruit to someone else.

    Whereas flower farming is less risky - especially if you keep storing them in an enderchest.
    If you get raided - they get less from the flower farm, as opposed to what they'd take from your fruit farm.

    Flowers can sell for at least $30 each at the market.
    Sometimes I just flower farm and I do ok.

    Really nothing. Flower farming gets you flowers to fruit farm with. Fruit farm makes the money.

    When farming for fruit should you wait for the entire plant to wither? In some of my plants only one or two of the flowers will get the yellow dot while the others are still white
