A big dripleaf is a plant that generates within lush caves. It may be used as a block for parkour and platforming.

Obtaining[]

Natural generation[]

Big dripleaves naturally generate within lush caves biomes.

Post-generation[]

Bone meal can be used on a small dripleaf plant to turn it into a big dripleaf up to 5 blocks tall, as long as there is enough open space above it.

Breaking[]

Big dripleaves can be obtained with any tool, but an axe is the most efficient. It also breaks when pushed with a piston or sticky piston. Breaking it at any spot on the plant causes the entire plant to collapse.

Destroying a big dripleaf plant drops one big dripleaf for each stem block and the leaf.

Usage[]

Big dripleaves consist of any number of non-solid stem blocks atop of each other and a single leaf as the uppermost block, which can be stood on by any entity like a normal block for 1 second (20 game ticks). After this time, it tilts down, becoming lower than a block and giving a player warning that it is about to collapse. After a few ticks, it tilts down and becomes temporarily non-solid. When the leaf is powered by redstone, it does not tilt or collapse, however. Powering the stem has no effect.

One-block tall big dripleaves can be used to make the player crawl.‌[Java Edition only] If a player is standing inside a big dripleaf when it is fully tilted, and the dripleaf returns to the untilted position, the player is left crawling underneath the leaf.

When directly hit with any projectile, the leaf immediately becomes temporarily non-solid. This cannot be prevented by powering it with redstone.

Placement[]

Big dripleaves can only be placed on top of any block‌[Bedrock Edition only][until BE 1.18.10] or on clay, coarse dirt, dirt, farmland, grass blocks, moss blocks, mycelium, podzol, and rooted dirt.‌[Java Edition only][upcoming: BE 1.18.10] It is always one block tall when placed.

Growth[]

Using bone meal on a big dripleaf makes it grow 1 block taller.

Java Edition

21w06aBig Dripleaves can no longer be broken with arrows in spawn protection.[1]
No longer stop tilting while sneaking on, jumping on, or even jumping off it.
Now tilt quicker.
Now tilt when hit by projectiles, instead of being broken.
Big Dripleaf can be used with redstone: Powering a dripleaf now prevents it from tilting down. Powering an already tilted dripleaf tilts it back up. Powering a dripleaf down allows it to tilt down again. Powering a dripleaf does not prevent tilting because of projectiles.
Interestingly, the block does not save if it is powered unlike anything else that reacts to redstone.
21w07aBig Dripleaf JE2 BE1.png The model of the big dripleaf has been changed.
21w10aBig dripleaves can now generate in lush caves.
21w11aBreaking the stem of a big dripleaf now drops the block.
Applying bone meal to a dripleaf stem makes it grow.
21w13aThe model of the big dripleaves has been tweaked that the texture of the underside of the leaf flipped from Big Dripleaf UNKVER1 (facing NWU).png to Big Dripleaf UNKVER2 (facing NWU).png.
21w20aTweaked the big dripleaf's inventory model.
