The Stages of Nether Wart Growth


Non-solid Block

Tool Used



Yes (64)





First Appearance

Update 0.12.1

Nether Wart is a plant Block that was added in Update 0.12.1. It can be found growing in the Nether dimension, and is a key ingredient in Potions.


Nether Warts can be found growing naturally in Nether Fortresses on Soul Sand patches, or in Nether Fortress Chests.


Nether Wart can be grown in both the Overworld and the Nether. It is currently the only crop to grow on Soul Sand and doesn't require any Liquids, though Lava does make it grow faster. Unlike other crops, it is not affected by Bone Meal in any way.


  • 1 Water Bottle + 1 Nether Wart => 1 Awkward Potion


  • Nether Wart can be used to Breed Chickens, but it cannot be used to lure them.
  • Nether Wart makes the same sounds as Stone when destroyed.
  • There was a bug before Update 0.14.0 where Nether Wart could not be broken by hand.
  • Bug: When Nether Wart is fully grown, it reverts to the texture used for the first stage.
