Lime dye is a quasi-primary dye obtained by combining one green dye and one white dye in a crafting square, or by smelting a sea pickle.

The simplest and easiest way to obtain green dye is by smelting a cactus at a furnace with any fuel source, like wood or coal. Cacti can be found throughout the desert and badlands biomes of Minecraft and spawn twice as often in deserts.

They can be broken by hand and have a guaranteed drop rate from themselves. Wandering traders also have a chance to sell cactus for three emeralds. Emeralds can be found in village chests.


Once players have a cactus on hand, the only other required items are a fuel source, such as coal, and a furnace. All a player needs to do is drop the cactus into the furnace and fuel it up with some coal. Once it has been cooked, a green dye will be ready for the player to use.

White dye is a primary color dye similar to bone meal. White dye is obtained from either a bonemeal, or a Lily of the Valley.

Players can use their lime dye to change the color of a variety of things in the game. To name a few, green dye can be used to dye wool or sheep, the collars on pets, and also to change the color of beds and other such items.

Once the two items in question are combined, the lime dye that players are looking for will be the resultant.
