Flowers may appear to be pointless items in Minecraft, but they have a variety of useful applications.
Flowers are just one of the many types of plants that can be found in Minecraft’s world. Flowers come in a variety of types and hues, and they even have a few biomes, such as the flower forest, where they tend to proliferate in greater numbers than elsewhere.
In Minecraft, despite their aesthetic appeal, most players may pass by flowers without considering their potential utility. Flowers, like the majority of other items in Minecraft, have their own unique uses that players should not overlook. Here are some of the best ways to utilize any flowers the player may have collected in Minecraft.
Bees are a passive flying monster type, and their nests can be harvested for honey and honeycomb. If players want to make an easy honey farm but can’t find bee nests nearby, they can increase the likelihood of bee nests spawning on newly planted trees.
Collect a collection of flowers and plant them around tree seedlings. Remember that these must be oak and birch saplings, as bee hives do not spawn on other tree types. As the sapling grows, the proximity of flowers will increase the likelihood of a beehive establishing itself on these trees. Additionally, having these flowers close to the beehives will increase the player’s honey yield as the bees begin to pollinate.
Put Them to Death
Dye is a fun way to change the color of blocks and other items in Minecraft. Not only can they be used on banners, which allow players to place markers on maps and decorate their homes, but also on white wool and glass blocks to create colored wool and stained glass.
The procedure is relatively simple. The desired dye can be obtained by gathering the desired-color flowers and placing them in the crafting grid. If players only have access to a limited variety of flowers, they can mix certain dyes to create lighter hues. For instance, mixing white dye derived from bone meal with red dye derived from roses produces pink dye.
Embellish A Minecraft House
The variety of flowers in Minecraft provides players with a wide range of shapes, sizes, and hues from which to choose. They can be an excellent way to add a natural touch to a structure.
Flowers can be planted anywhere, and they can also be grown on grass blocks using bone meal. Keep in mind that doing so will also result in the growth of tall grass, with biome-specific outcomes. Classically, you can craft a clay pot and place a flower in it by right-clicking the pot after placing it on the ground.
Fill A Container With Bone Meal
Early on during a Minecraft survival run, bone meal can be a lifesaver. In a pinch, it can be used to rapidly cultivate wheat, carrots, potatoes, and a variety of other plants for the player’s needs. However, obtaining bone meal is an entirely different story, particularly if the player is unwilling to fight hordes of skeletons.
Instead of risking their lives, players can create a composter and fill it with any wildflowers they find. This will gradually raise the level of the composter until it is full and can be harvested for bone meal. It may not be the most efficient method, but it is a useful skill to have in a pinch.
Prepare a Suspicious Stew.
Flowers cannot be consumed as-is, but they can be cooked into a Suspicious Stew, which players may encounter while looting shipwrecks submerged. It is possible to craft Suspicious Stews with a variety of status effects, depending on the flower used to create it.
The stew requires a wooden bowl, brown and red mushrooms, and the player’s chosen flower. The majority of these effects only last a few seconds, so they are not a substitute for brewing potions, but rather a fun short-term effect. Players can expect the following from each flower that can be added:
Wither Rose: effect of withering
Blue Orchid and/or Dandelion: Effect of saturation (increases fullness)
Night Vision effect of poppies
Allium: Effect of Fire Resistance
Lily of the Valley: Toxic result
Tulip: Effect of weakness
Azure Bluet: Blindness effect
Cornflower: Effect of Jump Boost
Regeneration impact of Oxeye Daisy
Feast On Them With Rabbits
Intent on establishing a rabbit farm? In this case, players must collect some flowers. In particular, they will need a bouquet of dandelions, as these are the flowers that can be used to attract and breed the elusive rabbits. They can also be used to breed rabbits, similar to other breedable mobs.
Rabbit’s feet are a rare drop that can be used to create potions that increase the player’s jumping height.
