Starting Your Greenhouse Crops

To understand the best greenhouse layout to bring in the most profit, we first need to know just how much room we are working with. Your greenhouse is a 10 x 12 plot of land that can hold 120 crops. In order to maximize your profit, you are going to want to pick a crop that doesn’t die after you harvest it. For new farmers your best bet is going to be Hops which can be harvested once a day. If it’s not currently available in your game, but you want to get started here is some weekly math for selling your crops:

Easy to Get Plants

Green Bean: 80 x 120= 9,600 a week
Strawberry: 120 x 120 = 14,400 a week
Blueberry: 150 x 120= 18,000 a week
Corn: 50 x 120= 6,000 a week
Hops: 175 x 120= 21,000 a week
Hot Pepper: 80 x 120=  9,600 a week
Tomato: 60 x 120= 7,200 a week
Cranberries: 150 x 120= 18,000 a week
Eggplant: 60 x 120= 7,200 a week
Grape: 160 x 120= 19,200 a week

Later in The Game

Ancient Fruit: 550 x 120= 66,000 a week

These prices are based on selling prices and shipping can be a little bit more per crop. Also, all of these crops have a slight chance of giving you extra harvest with only a few exceptions such as corn.

Next, we need to get your Stardew Valley Greenhouse full of trees. A lot of players don’t realize it, but you can grow 20 trees in your Greenhouse along with your 120 crops. The trees grow outside the crops area, and can give you additional money. To get the most out of your trees make sure you plant them two spaces apart in a square around the crops wooden border. If they are put right beside each other then they will not have enough room to grow. The most profitable trees are the peach and pomegranate with their fruit going for 140G each.

Green Water Efficiency

Energy Levels after watering a full greenhouse

For those of you who don’t like to waste time watering crops each day, there are sprinkler setups. Ideally, you have access to making the iridium sprinklers. Iridium sprinklers can water your whole greenhouse with only 6 units, saving you plenty of time and energy each day. To place iridium sprinklers properly follow this formula from right to left:

Sprinkler Placement: Count in the wooden border around the crop area for a total of 168 workable blocks. Place a sprinkler on the 43th, 48th, and 53th blocks and then again on the 113th, 118th, and 123th space for a total of 6 iridium sprinklers.

This will create a grid that will completely water your crops every day and take the least amount of space up. All you have to do to figure out how much it will affect your crops is by multiplying the cost of one crops weekly production by 4 and then subtracting it from the total weekly income, the other two sprinklers are on the border not affecting the growing area.  While it is still up to you if you want to maximize profit by forgoing sprinklers, this system is efficient and makes your game less tedious. Sprinklers also will not affect your tree placement and only really take away from your crops.

*Additional Tip for best Greenhouse harvesting: Try to plant all of your crops on the same day to ensure all harvesting occurs at the same time.
