What farm layout will produce the most chlorophyte?

Which chlorophyte farm is better: 3×3 squares or 5×5 squares?

Note that I want them to grow as fast as they can, and I can expand total size of my farm to 50×50 blocks.

Answer

As of 1.3, the rules for Chlorophyte spread have changed. There is now a limit of 41 blocks of Chlorophyte in a 95 block radius, so farms need to be much more spread out than previously. Neither a 5×5 nor a 3×3 farm will be optimal. If you want to do a rectangular farm, 6×7 is now the optimal size

My farm setup involves 2x 2×9 mud wells with one space between them.

L = Lizhard Brick
C = Chlorophyte
M = Mud

With 36 mud bricks and 5 chlorophyte seeds, this design maximizes space usage while making it convenient to mine. Using lizhard brick means that you can mine the mud wells with the shroomite digging claw without breaking your mold or worrying about mining the seed chlorophyte blocks.
