As you know, the game world of Minecraft consists of chunks of 16×16 blocks. Each piece is loaded only next to it if there is a player, respectively, if you have plants in the loaded piece, they will not work/grow. ChickenChunks 1.12.2 modification adds a new block that will keep the pieces loaded around it constantly, so that your plants will always grow and the mechanisms will work.
