In the blocky world of Minecraft, players will find many kinds of trees growing in different biomes. Eight types of trees are found in the Overworld – oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, dark oak, azalea, and newly added mangrove. Out of these, mangrove trees are the most unique as they can provide lots of different blocks. Let’s find out how you can grow mangrove trees in Minecraft.
Guide to Growing Mangrove Trees in Minecraft: All you need to know
Mangrove tree is the first tree in Minecraft whose saplings can also be planted underwater. Mangrove saplings are called propagules. To get propagules, players will have to find a mangrove tree. Propagules are found hanging from the bottom side of mangrove leaves.
Mangrove trees generate only in mangrove swamp biomes. However, if players fail to find a mangrove swamp biome, they might be able to purchase it from wandering traders. After getting propagule, growing a mangrove tree is pretty easy.
Players must first plant a propagule on a dirt, grass, moss, or mud block. Ensure that there are six blocks of empty space above the propagule and no blocks surrounding it. Also, the propagule needs a minimum of light level 9 to grow into a mangrove tree. Then, players can either wait for the propagule to grow or use bone meals to make it grow instantaneously.
Mangrove trees can grow as tall as spruce trees and have vines growing out of their leaves. Players can also find some propagules already growing out of mangrove leaves. At the bottom of the tree, there will be long elongated mangrove roots. Any mud block on the ground will turn into muddy mangrove roots.
Players can also find moss carpets on top of mangrove logs in mangrove trees. Once players have a mangrove tree, they can use bone meal on mangrove leaves and grow propagules to grow more mangrove trees.
