Building a greenhouse in Minecraft is a cool way to organize your farming and gardening in the game. The main advantage of building a farm in a greenhouse is that your farm can be indoors, but still exposed to natural sunlight due to the transparent glass.
Most importantly, greenhouses are visually appealing and can help keep out mobs and players on multiplayer servers. Note that mobs (including creepers) can still spawn inside your greenhouse at night if you don’t have proper lighting at night.
