The Pitcher Plant is a new type of decorative plant in Minecraft 1.20, and it’s got another use: you can use it to craft Cyan Dye. You can naturally grow this plant from the Pitcher Pod, which is dropped by Sniffers. Our guide will provide you with tips on how to get a Pitcher Plant in Minecraft as well as show you how to use it.

Pitcher Pods serve as the seeds for Pitcher Plants and can be placed on village farmland to grow. The only way to get Pitcher Pods is to make a Sniffer dig up dirt. This action has a chance of dropping a Pitcher Pod once your Sniffer’s done digging. Read my guide on where to find Sniffers if you’re unsure how to come across these creatures.

Note that Sniffers can dig only certain types of blocks, resulting in dropping the Pitcher Pods, including:

  • Dirt Blocks
  • Grass Blocks
  • Podzol Blocks
  • Coarse Dirt Blocks
  • Rooted Dirt Blocks
  • Moss Blocks
  • Mud Blocks
  • Muddy Mangrove Roots

How to Use Pitcher Plants and Pitcher Pods in Minecraft 1.20

Besides the obvious crop farming of Pitcher Plants from the Pitcher Pods, I’ve found there to be a few other uses for these seets:

  • Use a Pitcher Plant to craft 2 Cyan Dye in a Crafting Table (see the image above).
  • Feed Pitcher Pods to a couple of adult chickens for breeding (only in Bedrock Edition).
  • Feed Pitcher Pods to small chicks for a 10% growth boost (only in Bedrock Edition).
  • Feed Pitcher Pods to Parrots for the purpose of taming (only in Bedrock Edition).
