Will water flowing directly downwards hydrate my farm?

I’m living on an island and trying to play with all the constraints that entails – foremost being a lack of space to build things. I want to create a farm so I don’t need to rely on mob spawns for my food but the lack of island space means I’ll need to build my farm upwards rather than outwards.

If I were to create a series of 5×5 “shelves” of farmland on top of each other and connect them with a hole in the center would water flowing from the topmost layer of farmland hydrate the shelves beneath it?

From my experience I know that flowing water will hydrate tilled dirt it flows adjacent to, but I’m not sure if the situation is the same when the water flows straight downward.


Yes. Confirmed experimentally.
