A flower pot is a decorative block that can contain a plant or a mushroom.
Flower pots can be mined using any tool, or without a tool.
A flower pot will also drop itself as an item when pushed by a piston.
Flower pots can be placed on upside-down slabs and upside-down stairs. They can not be placed on normal slabs and stairs. Flower pots are 3⁄8 of a 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. It is possible to jump from a flower pot onto a fence.
