Dead bushes are transparent blocks in the form of an aesthetic plant.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Dead bushes drop 0–2 sticks when broken without shears, or when the block below it is removed. When shears are used, a dead bush drops itself.

In Legacy Console Edition, dead bushes always drop one stick.

Natural generation[]

Dead bushes generate on sand, red sand, podzol, dirt, coarse dirt and terracotta in deserts, badlands and giant tree taigas. Dead bushes generate twice as commonly in desert biomes as they do in giant tree taigas, and 10 times more often in badlands than they do in deserts (ratio of 1:2:20 – taiga:desert:badlands). In Java Edition, dead bushes can also generate in swamp biomes.

Dead bushes can be found inside flower pots inside some desert village houses.

Usage[]

Dead bushes can be used for aesthetic decoration, as a source of sticks and a fuel source. They can be placed on any kind of sand, terracotta, dirt or podzol; in Java Edition, they can also be placed on grass blocks, mycelium and moss blocks. They can also be placed in flower pots. Dead bushes do not spread, and cannot be grown using bone meal.

Smelting[]

Dead bushes can be used as fuel, smelting one item per dead bush.
