Fix Version/s: Minecraft 18w06a
Any time the block underneath a Chorus Flower Plant is instantly replaced with Endstone, the Chorus Flower will grow.
Same for Cactus blocks with sand underneath and Bamboo/Sugarcane with dirt or grass underneath.
The expected behavior is that the plant should break as Sugarcane do when the block underneath of those plants are moved and replaced.
As it currently stands this behavior allows for mass duplication of these items on the order of tens of thousands of items per hour. Far, far faster than any conventional farming method.

Carrots, Potatoes, Wheat, and Beetroot are also now affected by this glitch as of the 1.15 snapshots.
- Set the value for the gamerule randomTickSpeed to 0
- Build a contraption like the one shown in Chorus flower update setup (17w06a).png and activate it
Based on 1.13.1 decompiled using MCPConfig
The affected blocks check in their Block.updatePostPlacement(IBlockState, EnumFacing, IBlockState, IWorld, BlockPos, BlockPos) implementation (which is called when neighboring blocks change) whether they should break because the supporting block is missing. In this case a tick is scheduled. The problem is that when this tick is executed, the support block exists again and therefore instead of being broken, the plant grows (both actions are part of the update method Block#tick).
