Guide to chia farming
in 3 Easy Steps

Make sure the blockchain and your Chia wallet are synced. Before you can create your NFT, you’ll have to pay a fraction of Chia (1 MOJO or 0.000000000001 XCH). Go to faucet.chia.net and send 100 mojos to your wallet address. Now follow screenshots below to make plots.
Once installed and connected to your Chia wallet address, go to the “Pool” tab in the main menu and click on the “Add a Plot NFT” button.

Create portable pooling plots
In the “Pool” section of the Chia software you will see your generated NFT.
Now go to the “Plots tab” and enter the plot creation wizard. Set up your plotting settings. In step 5 of the wizard you can select the NFT you have created from the drop-down list.
Congratulations! You’re now farming to the pool. Your plots will automatically be linked to your NFT and farm to the pool! To monitor the statistics of your farm, you should enter your NFT launcher ID on XCHPool.explorer. Each of your NFTs has a unique launcher ID that can be found in your NFTs list.
