One item that remains important despite its humble appearance is bone meal  throughout the years.

A bone meal is a substance made from bones in Minecraft, and you can get these bones from skeleton mobs. You can use bone meals for growing crops and trees faster in Minecraft, but it doesn’t work on some plants like cactus, nether wart, vines. The bone meal also can be used for making dyes to craft banners and other things white. How to make Bone Meal in Minecraft

From growing plant life, to crafting dyes, blocks, and many decorations, Bone Meal is a great all-around material in Minecraft. For those unsure of how to find or make it, however, it may not be as accessible. However, there are plenty of ways to stock up on Bone Meal. It spawns in quite a few loot locations, as well as being droppable from fish. Additionally, using a composter and putting enough plant matter inside will spawn one piece of Bone Meal.

Bone meal can be found in several places in Minecraft

  • Craft from bones or bone blocks: Place a bone or a bone block into the crafting grid. Bones will give 3 pieces of bone meal, while bone blocks give 9 pieces. Bones are a common drop from killing Skeletons and can also be found in treasure chests. Bone blocks spawn underground in the Overworld on a rare occasion, or commonly spawn in the Soul Sand Valley biome in the Nether.
  • Dropped by fish: Slaying fish (not fishing for them), has a small chance of them dropping bone meal. For Bedrock players, fish will drop bones.
  • Produced by composter: Composters can be crafted with seven pieces of slabs in the crafting grid. Placing any item that’s considered food or a plant will compost it, and once the composter is full, it will return the items as bone meal for the player.
  • Traded by the Wandering Trader: The Wandering Trader will spawn close to the player after a few days have passed in the Minecraft world. Sometimes, he sells a bone meal for a few emeralds, though this trade isn’t really worth it.
