Is there any way to avoid this seed planting bug?

I am experiencing a very annoying bug where planting two seeds next to each other causes them to either turn back into items, or disappear entirely. This happens for wheat, pumpkin, and melon seeds in the same area.

If I try to plant wheat in the red square (Image 1), then both it and the one next to it disappear (Image 2).

  • Why can't I destroy or place blocks?
  • How do level seeds work?
  • Do shorn sheep regrow their wool?
  • Can't find sprint button?
  • Is this Fireplace Safe?
  • Is there a mod / bukkit plugin to fine-tune mobspawners in SMP?
  • Before planting
    After planting

    Is there anything I can do to stop this happening and plant my seeds properly?

  • How much faster is jumping while sprinting?
  • After installing Minecraft, I cannot figure out how to start the game
  • How can I find a thief (ideally without Bukkit)?
  • Can I /clone relative to entities, not the command block?
  • Why is =! not working in testfor command?
  • Why does testfor sometimes output an error?

    It looks to me that it isn’t a bug that’s causing the seeds to pop out, but your lack of lighting. If an area is too dark, seeds will pop out. I don’t know why the other one pops out too, but you can at least try to increase the lighting. That should fix the problem.

    I have had this problem, when i would plant seeds, they would pop off. Its the lighting, as you may need to add a torch or glowstone above the dirt, and it should fix this issue. By the way, to make a torch be in the center, you build a small tower, about 3 high, (depending on the ceiling) then 1-2 blocks to where the center of the dirt and crops are, then you place torches on the block(s) and remove the tower.
