Kelp is a plantable underwater plant block added to Minecraft in Java Edition 1.13 and Bedrock Edition 1.4.0.

Smelting it in a furnace, smoker, or campfire yields dried kelp. Players can eat dried kelp faster than other foods. Nine dried kelp can be crafted into a dried kelp block which can be used as fuel.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Kelp can be mined instantly with any tool or with the player's fist. Breaking one part of a kelp stalk destroys all kelp blocks above it. Each block drops an item.

Wandering Traders can sell kelp in exchange for emeralds.

Kelp is placeable on a wide variety of blocks. It grows underwater if it has either a source block of water or flowing water above it. It does not require any light level to grow, nor does it need access to the sky.

  • In real life, kelp is not considered a plant. It is classified by scientists as algae.
