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.

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.


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.[Java Edition only]

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.[Bedrock Edition only]

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]
