Nether wart is a fundamental brewing ingredient.


Chest loot[edit]

Nether wart can be found in 19.0% of fortress chests in stacks of 3–7.


When planted on soul sand, nether wart will become a crop which will grow through four stages (IDs: 0–3). 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.


Brewing ingredient[edit]

Nether wart's primary purpose is to brew the Awkward Potion, the base required for brewing nearly all other potions, aside from the Potion of Weakness which can also be brewed directly from a water bottle.
