Thanks for this! I moved into the Guides & Tutorials section

I’m not sure plots check is the correct command here… wouldn’t it be one of the others?

  --root-path PATH  Config file root  [default: /home/mariano/.chia/mainnet]
  -h, --help        Show this message and exit.

  configure   Modify configuration
  farm        Manage your farm
  init        Create or migrate the configuration
  keys        Manage your keys
  netspace    Estimate total farmed space on the network
  plots       Manage your plots
  run_daemon  Runs chia daemon
  show        Show node information
  start       Start service groups
  stop        Stop services
  version     Show chia version
  wallet      Manage your wallet

Like show for example? or farm summary?

It should be .\chia.exe keys show


I edited the OP to be accurate

Not accurate enough :slight_smile:

@blueoxx has the correct command, the OP still says “plots show”

Typing ‘chia keys show’ will show you:

  • Fingerprint:
  • Master public key
  • Farmer public key
  • Pool public key
  • First wallet address

Ha man I was not paying close attention I guess. Fixed now

I use tab too much…

Just a note ----
If it doesn’t work make sure you don’t do “.\chia\ keys show” but this instead “.\chia keys show”

Hello, Long time OG plot holder, first time NFT plotter. I have a public key and private key and phrase and everything written down but the farmer key and not a single tip has worked to fetch it. I tried to create a plot and the farmer key never showed up in the log, I’ve tried the command prompt to no avail and the powershell is a rabbit hole of other issues with the modules, value expressions and lots of other terrible things. lol It’s not all terrible I just haven’t used the powershell much at all. Aside from a more functional brain what else is going on here?
chia version 1.2.11
madmax v0.1.6

update: I created a new plot and this time it did spit out a farmer plot. Am I to assume this long string is really my farmer key auto retrieved by madmax and chia miner? Or could it possibly be one of those donation addresses some developers insert into their mining code? like Etherminer/stratum or something like that?
