Bone Meal is the product created when a Bone is crushed into powder. Wandering Traders will sell bonemeal in exchange for Emeralds. It has several uses.

Uses

Bone meal can be used as a fertilizer for several types of plants. As of 1.14, it's functionality as a dye has been removed, but can now be crafted into White Dye.

Mechanics

As a fertilizer, bone meal works on Wheat Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Melon Seeds, Saplings, Mushrooms (creating a Giant Mushroom), Tall Grass and Sweet Berry Bushes. When used on one of these plants, there is the potential to instantly grow said plant to maturity. It may also take more than one handful of bonemeal to fully grow the plant. As of update 1.8, Bonemeal does not fully grow Wheat. Using it on normal Grass causes flowers and tall grass to appear on top of grass blocks in the vicinity. Cacti, certain saplings, and Sugar Cane will also grow when bonemeal is used on them. Using bonemeal on a pumpkin or melon stem will cause said stem to grow by 1 tier, soon becoming fully grown. However, the plant will not produce its respective vegetable immediately.
