|Block Entity ID||
A flower pot is a decorative block that allows plants in it.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Flower pots can be mined using any tool, or without a tool.
A flower pot will also drop itself as an item when pushed by a piston.
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
One flower pot spawns in every witch hut, containing a red mushroom. This is not the best source in the game, though, as witch huts spawn only rarely.
Crafting[edit | edit source]
Usage[edit | edit source]
Flower pots can be placed on upside-down slabs and upside-down stairs. They can not be placed on normal slabs and stairs. Flower pots are 3/8 block high and can be stepped on. It is not possible to walk from the top of a flower pot onto a full sized block without jumping. It is possible to jump from a flower pot onto a fence.
