Seagrass can be destroyed instantly with any tool, item or the player’s fist, but it can be only obtained using shears, or it will drop nothing. Regular seagrass drops 1 seagrass when harvested with shears and tall seagrass drops 2 seagrass when harvested with shears.
Using bone meal underwater will generate seagrass. The bone meal must be used on a non-transparent block under at least 2 blocks of water, with the water directly above the block being non-flowing. If these conditions are met, a one-block tall seagrass will generate on that block, and if available, seagrass will also generate on surrounding blocks.
Seagrass can be used to breed turtles.
Applying bone meal to a one-block-tall seagrass will turn it into a two-block-tall seagrass, assuming there is enough space. It can also be used to completely waste bone meal if no such space exists..
