How To Grow Nether Warts

Minecraft players can grow Nether Warts on their farms. Then, they don't need to explore mysterious and dangerous Nether fortresses to find this ingredient. Follow this full guide on how to grow nether wart in Minecraft.

Step 1. Create the best conditions to grow Nether Wart

To grow Nether Warts, you need to create a farm and put the best condition for the fungus to grow in it. This fungus species only grows on the soul sand. The soul sand can be found in four-block-deep layers below Y=34 in the nether wastes. You can also get this sand from nether wart rooms. You don't need to care about the water and sunlight because they do not matter the growth of this fungus.

Minecraft Nether Wart has four stages of growth but its appearances in the second and third stages are the same.

  • In the first stage, it looks like a quartet of red bulbs that sprouts out of the sand.
  • Then, these red bulbs rise a bit and you can see some mass between these bulbs in the second and third stages of development.
  • In the final stage, it looks like a thick bunch of bulbous red stalks.

After it is totally mature and ready to use, you can harvest this fungus to use.

You can harvest it after 34 minutes. There are no requirements about the tool to harvest this material. However, it's highly recommended to use an enchanted tool to get greater yields.
