Natural generation[]

Mangrove roots are generated in mangrove swamp biomes.

Post generation[]

When mangrove propagules grow, they develop roots that can vary in size.

Usage[]

Redstone[]

Redstone circuits can pass their power level through mangrove roots and power other redstone components that are adjacent to the block, even when waterlogged. Waterlogged mangrove roots follow the same mechanics as any other waterlogged block.
