Growing Moss[edit]

In regards to the speculation of moss growing on Cobblestone, Notch does indeed intend to have moss grow on "rock", however we need confirmation on whether he is referring to Stone or Cobblestone. SteveZombie 01:24, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Considering we have mossy cobblestone blocks already, I guess it'll just grow on cobblestone.--Quatroking - Garble Garble! 10:10, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Does this mean that all structures made of cobblestone will be mossed over when that update happens? I'd prefer not to have my castle turn green on me now. -Funkadacious
you make castles out of cobblestone? O.o bad aesthetics much? stone castles are the way to go :P --Kizzycocoa 16:38, 26 October 2010 (CDT)
The moss will probably only 'spread' from other moss-covered cobble. ConMan8
I would assume moss will only grow on blocks that are in or 1-2 blocks from water. –ultradude25 (T|C) 22:09, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that moss will behave much like grass does; it won't grow unless there is an adjacent block with moss on it, and sunlight is present. -Funkadacious
What use would the moss have? Would it be harvested like grass? Would it be eaten? (Just kidding, I wouldn't want to eat moss... On Survival test, I'm even hesitant to eat the mushrooms) Also, if it were to only survive on blocks 1-2 blocks from water, then wouldn't 90% of dungeons loose their moss? Just my thoughts. Also, about the cobblestone castle thing, it costs a lot of wood/coal/lava buckets to make that much stone. 99seconds 23:22, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I think the mossy cobblestone is a way to show how many dungeons you found; it should be kept as a rare block.--BURRITO333 23:32, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm a little curious about this. If mossy cobble stone spreads, why is it not mentioned in the article? (unless i missed it) Also would mossy stone spread? Be interesting facts to know, and place in the page. 11:21, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

No that was just someone's speculation a couple of years ago. AFAIK, nothing of the sort was ever implemented. --Mental Mouse 12:35, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
well.. there are mods for that

Can I remove "Alpha" from this sentence?[edit]

"In Alpha and Beta mode, it is currently only found in..."

may i replace this sentence with

"In Beta mode, it is currently only found in..."

if you wish to edit it out, I strongly suggest you move/reformat the information into past tense.

Block Resistance[edit]

I was looking at various block resistances and noticed that Moss Stone only has a resistance of 1 according to this page. I went to the explosion page (linked from block res.) and it said 30. Ralon 20:15, 3 March 2011 (UTC) Ralon

Removed by Sunlight?[edit]

I was walking around and after not too long i found an average size dungeon close to the surface. I removed the dirt above it, killed a bunch of zombies, and destroyed the spawner. Before it was exposed to sunlight (i removed the roof) i noticed a full floor of mossy cobblestone. By the time i got around to collecting the moss stone, there were small patches of normal cobblestone on the ground where moss used to be. In hind sight i should have took screens, but i do have ones of where the normal stone was instead of moss ( i didn't bother to take it) --Deanm 20:49, 9 April 2011 (UTC) ( ) I know it's a little mangled, and the one wall was already gone. i'm using 1.4_01

There are almost always patches of normal stone in dungeon floors, and I've never seen (much less heard anyone else claim to see) moss stone turn into normal stone when exposed to sunlight. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:12, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
Good thing you put 'almost always' in there because I found a dungeon that had only mossy cobblestone on the floor but not under the walls, to realistic for Minecraft, huh?

Alright then i guess i was mistaken --Deanm 19:20, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

I think somebody just stole your mossy cobblestone and legged it XD--Neil2250 00:59, 1 May 2011 (UTC)


Why is Moss stone a sub-section of Cobblestone? Grass/Dirt aren't sub-sections of the other.

Check my post here: Talk:Sandstone

There should be Moss Slabs and Moss Stairs in a future update since there already is Cobble Stairs and Cobble Slabs... Kingy98 19:19, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

This is not for suggestions. Please go to Mojang's Get Satisfaction site. 21:42, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

NPC villages[edit]

  • NPC villages were originally intended to be made of moss stone.[citation needed]

Could anyone find the reference to this. I removed it from the page after searching, but couldn't find any information about it.

I could. i saw images once.

Someone should see about finding when Villages stopped having Moss Stone, and add it to the history section. Gamegirlxl (talk) 22:14, 2 June 2014 (UTC)


I think that combining one cobblestone and one vine should yield one moss stone.

Yeah, it should. BTW this is not a suggestion site (Go to Get Satisfaction ). Also sign your posts using four tildes. -- 10:17, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

NPC Village Structures[edit]

Can NPC Village structures use Moss Stone? Also, if blocks of structures(such as churches) are replaced with blocks of moss stone, will they still be recognized by Villagers as NPC Village structures? --Radical Edward2 21:23, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Natural villages AFAIK don't use moss stone. Adding some yourself is no problem... villagers don't care what their houses are made of, as long as the doors meet the standard (see the Village page). --Mental Mouse 14:53, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Merge into Cobblestone[edit]

This block is now essentially to Cobblestone as Mossy Stone Bricks are to Stone Bricks (especially with the 1.14 update adding slabs and stairs for it). I feel like this page would be better merged into there. - User-12316399 (talk) 11:18, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

 Support because of how equal they are: all places where mossy cobblestone generates, cobblestone generates too; has the slab and stairs as well (which the cracked and chiseled stone bricks even don’t). Additionally, all block variants are on 1 page: stone and smooth stone, cut, smooth chiseled, normal and all red variants of sandstone, all stone brick types, all quartz types, etc. FVbico (talk) 11:37, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
 Support - I was going to stay neutral or oppose due to cobblestone being used in recipes where mossy cobblestone can't be used (furnaces, tools, etc.) but FVbico's comment reminded me of stone and smooth stone, which are used in different crafting recipes and are in the same page.--Capopanzone (talk | contribs) 15:18, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
 Support. -BDJP (t|c) 18:27, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Although this hasn't received a whole lot of participation, this has gone on for months and there is well-reasoned support with no opposition, and this isn't a ridiculously large and widespread change or anything. Therefore, I believe there is enough of a consensus currently to merge this with Cobblestone, and I will be doing so as time permits (anyone else is welcome to help me out).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 17:16, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
