- Natural generation: Seagrass generates in either its tall or small form in ocean biomes near kelp, and also generates by itself in rivers, underwater caves and swamps, replacing ice and planks as necessary.
- Bone meal: Using bone meal underwater generates 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, seagrass generates on that block and, if available, also on surrounding blocks. Regular seagrass grows into tall seagrass if more bone meal is applied and if vertical space is available.
Seagrass can be obtained via:
- Harvesting: Seagrass can be harvested only with shears. Using any other tool, item, or the player’s fist destroys seagrass and it drops nothing. When harvested with shears, regular seagrass drops itself as an item, and tall seagrass drops 2 seagrass items.
- Turtles: A turtle drops 0–2 seagrass when killed. The Looting enchantment increases the maximum number of possible seagrass drops by 1 per level.
Tall seagrass has a hitbox considerably more appropiate for its size than other two-block-tall plants such as tall grass. This inconsistency is completely intended.
Seagrass can be used to breed turtles.
Placing seagrass into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
Using seagrass on a baby turtle accelerates its growing time. When the turtle becomes an adult, it drops one scute.
