Skyroot Bed is a type of utility block found in the Aether and is the Aether counterpart to the vanilla Bed.


It does not require any tool to be obtained, and so, will drop even if mined with bare hands.

Skyroot Beds are 9/16th of a block high and more than one pixel than half a block, so it allows you walk onto other blocks while on top of a Skyroot Bed, but not onto a Skyroot Bed from a level below it.


Skyroot Beds take up two blocks of space. They require two blocks from the player's facing direction. They cannot be placed on non-solid blocks. Skyroot Beds will float if supporting blocks are removed under them.


Skyroot Beds are used by right-clicking a Skyroot Bed at night. Attempting to use a Skyroot Bed during the day will display "You can only sleep at night". Skyroot Beds cannot be used if the player is not on the same level as them and on a solid block that is a valid placing location for a Skyroot Bed.

Players cannot sleep if hostile mobs are nearby them or if they are on fire when they attempt to sleep. Using a Skyroot Bed at night will make the screen fade to black and automatically skip the current time in the Aether to sunrise. Skyroot Beds, however, do not speed up external processes such as smelting.


  • In the original The Aether mod, Skyroot Beds were not present and like in the Nether or The End, normal Beds would explode if placed and then used.
