Description (From Recipaedia)

Ivy is a plant that grows and clings to vertical surfaces. It does not require much light to stay alive, just a humid and warm climate.


Ivy is used to craft string which is a useful crafting ingredient.

It is also useful as a decorative element and may be used in adventure maps to disguise passageways or other items. These pictures show it hanging over birch:

  • Ivy only grows naturally in jungle biomes.
  • It is easy to break without tools.
  • If you want to get the most when harvesting ivy, break it from the bottom up. Any piece below the one you break will disappear. 
  • It is easy to propagate. Simply place it on any wall and it will quickly grow down the wall. After a time, it may also spread sideways.
  • It can grow very long and will grow over doorways, fences, and just about anything else it is already above.
  • It can make a very interesting decoration, for example a destroyed house which nature has noticed and has gotten to work on. It also looks like three green strings with leaves sticking out of it.
  • Sometimes, in generated worlds, ivy can be free standing next to tree ivy, this is impossible to recreate and will break if anything is placed near it.
  • Ivy is NOT climbable. You cannot stand on top of it.
  • Ivy is added in the 1.24 update.[1]
  • Ivy can be found naturally on oak trees.
  • It will not always grow beyond two blocks.


Horses, camels, donkeys, brown cows, black cows, brown bulls, black bulls, white bulls, gnus, giraffes, rhinos, wildboars, reindeerszebras, and bison will eat ivy.
