Flower pots can be placed on upside-down slabs and upside-down stairs. This however, is not possible in Pocket Edition. They can not be placed on normal slabs and stairs.

It is possible to jump from a flower pot onto a fence.

Block entity[edit | edit source]

See also: Block entity format

A flower pot has a block entity associated with it that holds additional data about the block. The block's block entity ID is FlowerPot.


  • Block entity data
    • Tags common to all block entities see Template:Nbt inherit/blockentity/template

    •  Item: The Block ID of the plant in the pot. Known valid blocks are minecraft:sapling (6), minecraft:tallgrass (31), minecraft:deadbush (32), minecraft:yellow_flower (37), minecraft:red_flower (38), minecraft:brown_mushroom (39), minecraft:red_mushroom (40), minecraft:cactus (81). Other block and item IDs may be used, but not all will render. Together with Data, this determines the item dropped by the pot when destroyed.

    •  Data: The data value to use in conjunction with the above Block ID. For example if Item is 6 (a sapling block), the Data is used to indicate the type of sapling.
