A flower pot is a decorative block that can contain flowers, saplings, mushrooms or plants.


Flower pots can be mined using any tool or without a tool.

A flower pot will also drop itself as an item (any plant or mushroom in it separately) when pushed by a piston or washed away with water.

Natural generation[edit]

Flower pots naturally generate in witch huts where they contain a red mushroom, the basement of igloos where they contain a cactus and in woodland mansions.

In 1.14[upcoming], flower pots containing an azure bluet can be found in some plains village houses. Flower pots containing a dandelion can be found in some savanna village houses. Flower pots containing a cactus can be found in some desert village houses.


Ingredients Crafting recipe


A flower pot can be used to hold mushrooms and various plants. Plants that can be placed in a pot include any one block high flowers, saplings, ferns, dead bushes, cacti and bamboo.

Flower pots can be placed against any surface in Java Edition.

In Bedrock Edition, they must be placed on top of a full-block top surface, or the top of a fence, stone wall or hopper. They cannot be placed on slabs and stairs unless those blocks are upside-down.

Flower pots are 38 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.

The plant or mushroom can be removed from the flower pot by pressing the use control.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only]
