Minecraft Flowers – Everything You Need To Know

Much like the real world, Minecraft flowers are naturally spawning plants in the game that can cover the overworld with their various types and colours. Thought of primarily for decoration, Minecraft flowers are also super important for creating different dye colours.

How To Grow Them – Minecraft Flowers

Used to change the colour of glass, terracotta, will and more, flowers can be planted on grass and dirt but can’t be cultivated like crops or trees. They can occasionally spawn when using bonemeal to generate tall grass, however.

When players plant them, they must be in direct sunlight, they will not grow underneath roofs or indoors unless under an artificial light level 8. There are a handful of random uses for flowers too:

  • If fed to brown mushrooms and then milked with a bowl, players will receive a bowl of suspicious stew in return. Yes, we know it doesn’t sound right either.
  • Flowers will grow in any weather condition providing the above conditions are met, however, two-block high flowers such as sunflowers won’t spawn from bone meal
  • Various species of flowers can be generated by using bonemeal on a flower bush, although it will only drop a flower of that type.
