Nether wart is a fungus found in the Nether that is vital in the creation of potions.

Obtaining

Breaking

Nether wart can be mined instantly with any tool. A fully mature Nether wart crop yields 2–4 Nether wart. This is increased by one for each level of Fortune. All other stages drop 1 Nether wart, regardless of whether Fortune is used.

Natural generation

Nether wart sometimes generates in Nether fortresses in soul sand gardens near stairwells. Nether wart can also generate in the courtyards of housing unit bastion remnants. As they are only found in rare Nether fortresses and housing unit bastions, they only generate in approximately 0.1 blocks per chunk.

Trading

Farming

When planted on soul sand, Nether wart grows through four stages, though the middle two stages have almost the same appearance (the difference is that the hitbox of stage 3 is three pixels taller). In Java Edition, the exact age can be seen using the debug screen, and the ages range from 0 to 3. Each random tick, Nether wart has a 10% chance of growing one stage. At default random tick speed, each Nether wart grows one age step approximately every 13653 game ticks (11.3775 minutes) on average, and fully grows from planting to harvest every 40960 game ticks (34.133333333333 minutes) on average. The growth rate is not affected by light or any other environmental factors. Bone meal cannot be used on the Nether wart.

Nether wart can only be planted on soul sand. It cannot be planted on soul soil. It can grow in any dimension.

Nether wart is ready to harvest when it reaches its fourth stage (age:3). Breaking a fully grown Nether wart drops 2 to 4 Nether wart, while an immature one drops a single Nether wart. Using a tool enchanted with fortune increases the maximum number of Nether wart dropped by 1 per level, for a maximum of 7 for a tool enchanted with Fortune III.

Composting

Placing a Nether wart into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
