A big dripleaf is a plant intended to generate within lush caves. It is intended to be used as a block for parkour and platforming.


Natural generation[edit]

Big dripleaves naturally generate within lush caves biomes, which can be accessed only if the world type is single biome.


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.


Big dripleaves can be obtained with any tool, but an axe is the intended tool. It also breaks when pushed with a piston or sticky piston.

Destroying a big dripleaf plant drops a single big dripleaf regardless of the height of the plant.

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 become 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. 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.


A big dripleaf can be placed only on top of a block. It is always one block tall when placed.


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

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 now 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.

  • The fact that the stem intersects the leaf when it tilts is actually completely intended.[2]
