Infertile Soil, but why?
For some reason, the dirt I'm using does not grow grass. Why? Please post all the things that may cause this.
I already know that grass wont grow if there's a block over the dirt block, or the dirt block is shadowed.
Does prolonged storing of dirt (in chests), or high altitudes perhaps have something to do with this?

in order for a dirt block to turn into a grass block, you have to place it somewhere close to another grass block. The block must not be separated in an enclosed room. If you're trying to place it in a room, make sure there is another grass block in the room. You can always use bonemeal or Invedit.
As far as I know, prolonged storing of dirt in chest, or high altitudes does not disable a dirt block from turning into a grass block.

Use a hoe first, to make it more fertile put it within 5 squares of water, after that don't step on it.

If the grass is underground, it is a difficult process to grow it. But if it's on the surface, it could be too dark. A solution is to use bonemeal with the dirt to cause the grass to grow and make the surrounding land grow as well.

The dirt does not grow grass on its own grass spreads through dirt blocks with enough light for example grass will expand from a dirt block to another one next to it or 1 or 2 blocks higher than it

the dirt only grows grass if you put water on the grass and hoe the dirt FIRST.
