Nether wart is a crop grown in the Nether.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Nether wart sometimes generates naturally in nether fortresses as a plant, in patches near stairwells.

It is also randomly found in soul sand patches around the landscape of the Nether in Legacy Console Edition.

Usage[edit]

Farming[edit]

Nether wart will grow through four stages, though the middle two stages have almost the same appearance (the difference is that stage 3 is one pixel taller). The exact age can be seen using the debug screen, and the ages range from 0–3. The duration of each stage is random, with no upper or lower limit, but the average duration is about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The growth rate is not affected by light or any other environmental factors. Bone meal cannot be used on the nether wart. Nether wart can only be planted on soul sand. It will grow in any dimension. Nether wart is ready to harvest when it reaches its fourth stage (age:3). Breaking a fully grown nether wart yields 2 to 4 nether wart, while an immature one yields only a single nether wart. Using a tool enchanted with fortune increases the maximum number of nether wart dropped by 1 per level.
