A flower pot is a decorative block that allows one block high flowers, saplings, mushrooms, and cacti in it. As of 13w36a, the new one block high flowers, ferns and dead bushes are also able to be used. Plants that cannot be placed in a pot include any two block high plant or flower, wheat, vines, lily pads, pumpkins, melons, nether wart, sugar canes, potatoes, carrots, peonies, large ferns, double tallgrass, lilac, and rose bushes. If the block beneath a flower pot is removed, it will break and drop itself and the plant it contained.
Flower pots can be placed on upside-down slabs and upside-down stairs. They can not be placed on normal slabs and stairs. When aiming at the side of a transparent block behind or above a crafting table the pot will not be placed on said block but on top of the crafting table instead. The same method works for furnaces and dispensers, but not for fences, cauldrons or chests. The flower pot is 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. Despite appearing to have Dirt in them, they do not require Dirt to craft.
 Natural Spawning
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.
