Nether wart (known as nether stalk in the code) is a plant grown in the Nether.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Nether wart can be mined with or without any tool.
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
Nether wart generates naturally in nether fortresses as a plant, in patches near stairwells.
Nether wart can be found in 22.0% of nether fortress chests, in stacks of 3–7.
Farming[edit | edit source]
When planted on soul sand, nether wart will grow through four stages, though the middle two stages have the same appearance. The duration of each stage is random, with no upper or lower limit, but the average duration is about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The growth rate is not affected by light or any other environmental factors. Bone meal has no effect on the nether wart. Nether wart can only be planted on soul sand. It will grow in any dimension. Nether wart is ready to harvest when it reaches its fourth stage. Breaking a fully grown nether wart yields 2 to 4 nether wart, while an immature one yields only a single nether wart.
