A moss block is a natural decorative block.
Using bone meal on a moss block causes nearby dirt, sand, gravel, stone, deepslate, granite, andesite, and diorite to be converted to moss blocks. Blocks on the same Y level with an air block above them, within a random 3x3 to 7x7 area from the original moss block can be converted.
- Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.
Plants such as grass and flowers can be planted on top of moss blocks. While saplings can also be planted on moss blocks, they will never grow into trees no matter how much bone meal is used on the plant or how many ticks pass, allowing the sapling to remain as it is indefinitely. Sugar cane and bamboo cannot be placed on moss blocks.
