Data values[edit | edit source]

Podzol has only one possible tile name: minecraft:dirt, which it shares with dirt. The tile data field defines which block is displayed. Podzol has the Numerical ID 243 in Pocket Edition.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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 spread to podzol.
  • Podzol can be picked up by endermen.
  • Podzol resembles what the ground of many forests looks like, because a high abundance of trees with leaves keeps the ground relatively shaded, making it hard for grass to grow, and forest floors are also often covered with dead leaves that have fallen from the trees.
