One of the ways to view a game is through its Ultimate Challenge. Since most games are entirely about combat, the ultimate challenge is usually a big boss fight. However, Minecraft has many different aspects, like combat, exploration, building, redstone, farming, fishing, and many other different activities. While most of these already have in- game challenges, like fighting the ender dragon or raiding a bastion, the last two examples are greatly lacking in any amount of challenge. Here I will give my opinion on what these challenges should be, but others are welcome to provide their own thoughts.
As the gardening ultimate challenge, I suggest the void orchid flower. Void orchid seed would be rarely found around the end outer islands. When planted in tilled earth, the plant will change shape and color depending on whether it needs more or less water or light. If its needs are not met soon enough, it will transform into a dead bush. When it is ready to continue to the next stage of growth, it will emit a particle effect. the orchid will not reach the next stage of growth without bonemeal. When it has reached its final stage (after about 3 game days), the orchid will no longer need water or light, and will no longer die if not taken care of.
