“A paler grass. Skyroot trees will grow on it. Allows Aether mobs to spawn”
Book of Lore

Aether Grass is a type of block found in abundance in the Aether, and grows on Aether Dirt. It appears to be an overworld grass block with a paler blue texture.


Aether Grass does not require a shovel to be obtained, and so, will drop even if mined with bare hands. It will not drop itself unless mined with a pickaxe that has the Silk Touch enchantment.

Natural generation[]

Aether Grass makes up the majority of the Aether, along with Holystone. It can be found all over islands, typically covering the first surface layer before Aether Dirt, and then Holystone.


Aether Grass is the only block that can grow Aether plants and trees, and breaks at the same speed as overworld grass. It is not possible to grow overworld Trees or Wheat on it.

Swet Jellys can be used to automatically turn placed Aether Dirt into Aether Grass. Ambrosium Shards can be used to automatically convert placed Aether Grass into Enchanted Aether Grass.

If Bone Meal is used on an Aether Grass block, vegetation has a chance to spawn instead of tall grass up to seven blocks away. White Roses are 70% chance, Berry Bush Stems are 40% chance, Purple Flowers and Berry Bushes are 20% chance, and Orange Trees are 10% chance.
