A pitcher plant is a plant that grows from a pitcher pod.


The sniffer may be able to sniff and dig up this plant in the new 1.20 Trails and Tales update.


Pitcher plants can be broken instantly with any item or by hand.

Pitcher plants also break if water or lava runs over its location, or if a piston extends or pushes a block into its location.


The creamy white insides of the Pitcher Plant may be crushed with the blue color of the plant to make cyan dye.
