What is rooted dirt in Minecraft?
Minecraft 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update added a wide variety of new blocks to the game, one of them being rooted earth.
Previous versions of Minecraft already featured various shapes of earth blocks before the last update, but rooted earth has been added to the list. However, this block works quite differently from other existing earth blocks.
In the middle row of the image above, the rooted earth has a visual texture similar to that of earth blocks and granite blocks.
The following is a basic guide to the Minecraft rooted dirt block.
Dirt rooted in Minecraft
What is different?
As mentioned, Minecraft offers different shapes of earth blocks such as grass block or coarse dirt. Rooted dirt should be seen as distinct from these blocks as they exist for different purposes. Rooted dirt, however, is similar to coarse dirt in that grass and other unnamed plants cannot grow on it.
Rooted Earth has an in-game counterpart, the Azalea Tree. The rooted blocks of earth act as the actual roots of these new trees, hence their name. Where there is an azalea, there is rooted earth directly below.
Where is it?
Rooted Earth Blocks and accompanying azaleas naturally generate in areas above lush cave biomes. Tree roots, which are made up of both rooted earth and hanging roots, can even extend to lush caves.
Sadly, Lush Caves have yet to be introduced in Minecraft Java Edition. However, they are available to find on Bedrock Edition. Lush caves are categorized as their own biome and generate randomly.
Other ways to get it?
Even though rooted dirt only spawns under an Azalea tree, Minecraft players can still get the block without locating an area where it naturally spawns.
Players can receive Rooted Earth Blocks from the special villager-type mob, the Wandering Trader. The price of two blocks of earth rooted in an emerald. However, it is not always guaranteed that a wandering trader will have it in stock.
