Steps to make a grass block from a dirt block

Grass can spread to dirt blocks and make a grass block if the requirements are met. Here is the requirement for grass to spread to a dirt block and make a glass block.

  • The dirt block needs to be within the 3×3×5 range of the source grass.
  • The source grass block needs a direct light of level 9 or brighter on top of it.
  • The dirt needs to have some light on it and the light level doesn't matter. So if there is a semi-transparent on top of the dirt block, the grass can still spread to it as long as the above surface can contact the light.
  • The block directly above the dirt block can't be water, lava, or a waterlogged variant block.  Ice and slime blocks don't prevent grass from spreading.

Grass doesn't need direct contact to other blocks to spread. Grass spread at random intervals to a random block in the range. The spread is not affected by gaps or other in-between blocks. Grass can spread downward and actually spread downward faster than upward.
