Default Grass in the Nether

A few days ago when I got back from being AFK I noticed in the chat log that some people were talking about growing grass in the Nether and if it was possible. I think they even mentioned asking an admin to spawn a grass block to try it out. I'm not sure what happened since then and forgot about this until just now.

Since I've been playing around with enchanting I got Silk Touch on one of my pickaxes and was mining some Stone (rather than Cobblestone) I wasn't really paying attention and mined some grass blocks and it let me keep the grass block in my Inventory.

As soon as I saw this I remembered the conversation and went to the nether and placed the block. Sure enough it works. I put some bare dirt next to it and it even grew across covering all the dirt blocks,



So yes it's possible and if anyone is interested I can help supply the grass blocks while this pickaxe is still usable, just let me know.

Bonemeal will also work to grow the grass and flowers over the grass blocks,



I always wanted a glass dome and a modest house with fence and garden in the nether, you know because I've never seen it before but I never knew I might actually be able to do it...

As a side note, trees will also grow in the nether as long as they're planted on soil brought in from the overworld. I don't remember what colour the leaves were, but I think they were a brownish sickly colour.

yup - I always plant trees around in the nether if I'm working in there, so I don't have to worry about bringing extra wood with me. (and with all the mushrooms about, wood allows you to make mushroom soup)

Thank you very much for this great suggestion. I also want to make a garden with a fence, I'm not sure if I can do it but planting some flowers by a ? could be the first step to this goal. Sometimes I just don't know where to start with all of that!
