Composter is a utility block that can be used to convert crops and plants into Bonemeal.

Mechanics

Players can turn vegetables, Seeds, Food, or any type of plant block/item into bonemeal by placing it into the composter. Each time an object is placed into the composter, there is a chance that it will appear slightly more full. Once the composter reaches a "full" appearance, placing one more object into the composter will cause a piece of bonemeal to pop out, and the composter will once again become empty. Farmer Villagers also use these blocks while working on the farm. If there is a Composter block on a village but there is no farmer, then a nearby villager without a profession will become a farmer.

Trivia

  • Like the Cauldron, it is possible to go inside the composter.
  • Oddly enough, you can put Sea Pickle in it, although sea pickles aren't plants in the real world.
