Hanging roots are a natural decorative block found underground in the lush caves biome.
Hanging roots can be destroyed with any tool or by hand, but using shears is the only way to collect the block.
They can only be placed on the underside of a block.
Placing hanging roots into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
