We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

A flower pot is a decorative block that allows plants in it.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

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.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Ingredients Crafting recipe

Usage[edit | edit source]

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

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 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 can be removed from the flower pot by pressing the use control.[Java Edition only]

Block entity[edit | edit source]

See also: Block entity format

A flower pot has a block entity associated with it that holds additional data about the block. The block's block entity ID is flower_pot.

  • Block entity data
    • Tags common to all block entities see Template:Nbt inherit/blockentity/template

    •  Item: The Block ID of the plant in the pot. Known valid blocks are minecraft:sapling (6), minecraft:tallgrass (31), minecraft:deadbush (32), minecraft:yellow_flower (37), minecraft:red_flower (38), minecraft:brown_mushroom (39), minecraft:red_mushroom (40), minecraft:cactus (81). Other block and item IDs may be used, but not all will render. Together with Data, this determines the item dropped by the pot when destroyed.

    •  Data: The data value to use in conjunction with the above Block ID. For example if Item is 6 (a sapling block), the Data is used to indicate the type of sapling.
