grass_carried[1] was a block which was used for storing the item model for grass blocks.


grass_carried is only known to be obtainable through the use of inventory editors and other external tools. If placed in a world, the block can be mined instantly with any item, but it does not drop anything regardless of the method used.



grass_carried obviously highly resembles the actual grass block. However, there are two key differences between it and normal grass blocks:

  • The top texture is a noticeably different color, and in fact matches the side texture much more than normal grass blocks.
    • This is due to this block using a pre-tinted texture, whereas the normal grass block uses a grayscale texture with a constant tint.
  • While grass blocks use the dirt texture on the bottom, grass_carried uses the side texture on the bottom: Grass Block (item) BE3 (facing NWU)

Functional differences from grass blocks[]

Despite very closely resembling the grass block visually, grass_carried has notable functional differences from normal grass blocks:

  • It can be broken instantly.[2]
  • It does not drop anything at all when broken.[2]
  • It does not have an icon in the inventory.[3]
  • It cannot be turned into farmland.[4]
  • Blocks which require a dirt-like block below them to exist, such as flowers and sugar cane, cannot be placed on it.[4]
  • Placing an opaque block on top on it does not gradually convert it to dirt.
