#1. How To Get Minecraft Sea Pickle

A Sea Pickle is an underwater block that emits light. When a sea pickle stands alone, its light is dimmer than other light-emitting blocks. Therefore, you need to collect as many sea pickle blocks as possible to put them in groups to boost the illumination. Here are ways to get Minecraft sea pickle blocks.

  • Trading

You can purchase sea pickle blocks from wandering traders that cost 2 emeralds each block. These wandering traders will spawn randomly. 

Find a wandering trader to buy sea pickle blocks.
  • Collecting

You can dive into the warm ocean biome to get naturally generated sea pickle blocks. They often spawn in a group of four blocks on the top and bottom of coral reefs and coral blocks.

Some sea pickle blocks can be found in desert village houses. They are used as decorative blocks inside those houses.

Minecraft players can grow more sea pickle blocks underwater at sea by using bone meal. Craft a bone meal and bring it to an underwater place where you find a living sea pickle, place it on the top of the sea pickle block, and let it generate one to three new sea pickle blocks around it.
