Unlike the arcane lamp from which it is made, the lamp of growth does not cast much light unless it is provided with Herba essentia. If this is done any plants that grow where its light shines will grow much faster than normal. Essentia can be fed to the lamp by attaching the lamp to a nearby essentia piping system.
To create the lamp you must use an arcane infusion altar.

The Lamp of Growth is a device for speeding crop growth in the vicinity, by supplying extra "growth ticks". Key points:
- It requires Herba essentia, which must be provided by a pipe. The amount of essentia used depends on the number of eligible plants within range.
- It affects all growable plants (crops, saplings, sugar cane, cactus, mana beans) in an octogonal area 12 blocks across as shown.
- The effect can pass through solid blocks, and the effects of multiple lamps stack.
Formerly lamps of growth could draw essentia directly from a nearby jar, or from an essentia mirror. In recent versions, they need to have the essentia piped in.
