Tall Aether Grass is a type of non-solid plant found in the Aether.


It does not require any tool to be obtained, and so, will drop even if mined with bare hands and will break instantly. Shears can be used to obtain it, and flowing water will destroy any Tall Aether Grass.

Natural generation[]

Tall Aether Grass can be found naturally generated all around the surface of islands and in 1.10[upcoming], is a lot more common.

Bone Meal[]

Tall Aether Grass can be manually spawned by using Bone Meal on Aether Grass, and occasionally flowers, Berry Bushes, or Orange Trees.


Tall Aether Grass is purely decorative in function and unlike Overworld Grass, will not drop Seeds. It does not need light to survive, unlike normal Grass. Like normal Grass, it is slightly offset off of blocks and will be replaced if a solid block is placed on it.


  • In the original The Aether mod, Tall Aether Grass was not present, and so islands were very barren as a result.
