Grass Block in Minecraft

Grass is a non-solid plant block that drops wheat seeds when broken. Its color changes depending on what type of biome it is in. Sometimes tall grass can spawn as a two-block high variant of grass. Ferns and tall ferns are variants only found in specific biomes but have the same characteristics as grass.

Where can you find grass?


Grass and tall grass are generated in random patches on top of grass blocks in most Overworld biomes. It can be found commonly in biomes such as plains, forests, savannas, and lush caves. Fern and tall fern are generated only in jungle, taiga, snowy taiga, and old growth taiga biomes.


Grass and fern can also be found in loot chests in villages. You can also grow grass and fern by using bone meal on grass blocks, though it is not guaranteed that they will grow as sometimes flowers can also grow.
