Trivia[edit]

  • Unlike other similar blocks, podzol will never spread to dirt blocks, nor will it turn into dirt if a solid block is placed on top of it, no matter how long the block remains on top of it. This is because podzol is a type of soil, and has the same Block ID as dirt, just a different data value.
  • Neither grass nor mycelium can grow on podzol.
  • Podzol can be picked up by Endermen.
