Rooted dirt is a natural decorative block.

Obtaining[]

Natural generation[]

The rooted dirts generated along with the Azalea tree.

Rooted dirt can generate under azalea trees. This may continue for more than a stack mainly-vertically downward under the trunk base/stump.

Post-generation[]

Single rooted dirt replaces dirt, coarse dirt or moss below oak logs where azalea trees are grown from azalea or flowering azalea.

Breaking[]

Rooted dirt can be mined with any tool or without a tool.

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Trading[]

Wandering traders can sell 2 rooted dirt for 1 emerald.

Usage[]

Much like coarse dirt, neither mycelium nor grass can spread onto rooted dirt. Plants can also not be placed or grown on top of it.

While it yields itself when dug, it does not convert into dirt after a block is placed onto it.

Rooted dirt blocks can be converted into dirt path blocks by using any type of shovel on the side or top of rooted dirt with air above it.

Hanging roots[]

Using bone meal on rooted dirt causes hanging roots to grow below the block, if space is available for it to grow.

Using a hoe on rooted dirt turns it into normal dirt and drops a hanging roots item.

Sounds[]

Its sound is between that of wooden planks and dirt variants.
