Nether Wart


Name:Nether Wart
Type:Item, crop
Found naturally:No
Item ID:nether_wart

Nether wart is a crop that is grown on soul sand.


When a fully grown crop is harvested, it drops 1-3 nether wart. If broken before maturing, it will drop nothing.


There is a small chance that a nethereye killed by the player in the Nether drops nether wart. The chances of this can be increased using the looting enchantment. Currently, this is the only way of obtaining nether wart if the player does not have any yet.


Nine nether wart can be obtained from a nether wart block.

Nether wart will break and disappear if placed on anything other than soul sand.


To grow nether wart, the player must place nether wart into a soul sand block, and wait a while to get a full grown nether wart. When fully grown, it has a chance of dropping more than one, allowing you to expand your farm. This can be done in the Overworld, as well as the nether.
