How to make Green dye in Minecraft

When it comes to adding color to your Minecraft world, having different dyes is a necessity.

Some dyes are easier to make, by just putting flowers or other materials into a crafting table, but green dye is a little bit trickier to acquire.


We provide you a step-by-step guide to help add some green dye into your inventory.


Required Materials to Craft Green Dye:


The materials you will need in order to craft a green dye are: 

  1. A furnace
  2. A fuel source (wooden materials, coal, charcoal, or a bucket of lava)
  3. A cactus



The most difficult part of this process is finding a desert.


Find a desert to obtain cactus


Finding a desert is the only way you can obtain cactus, the required material to make green dye.

Once you have found a desert, however, the rest of the steps are easy! Next, you must find a cactus in the desert.

Being one of the three plants that grow in the desert (those being cacti, dead bushes, and sugar cane), cacti are quite abundant in this arid climate.

Once you found cactus break it


Once you've found your cactus, you can break it the same way you break any block and proceed to get the green dye you've been searching for!

FAQs


Q. What is the rarest dye in Minecraft?


Before the addition of the cornflower in Minecraft update 1.9, a lot of the community would agree that blue was the hardest dye to come across as it required mining the rare lapis lasuli block. Post-update 1.9, however, all dyes are quite accessible. The 'rarer' ones, per say, would be the dyes you have to create with other dyes, like cyan dye.


Q. What stuff can you dye in Minecraft?


A bunch of items are dyable in Minecraft: wool, terracotta, concrete, carpets, beds, and more! You can even dye the collars of tamed wolves as well as dying sheep. Dying sheep allows you to access more colored wool in the long run, as it only takes one dye; dying the wool after shearing the sheep every time would take a lot more resources.


Conclusion


Congratulations! You have made green dye! You may now go about your world having fun coloring everything you want. Dye is one of the aspects of Minecraft that give players so much creative freedom, so use it whenever and however you’d like!
