Disambig.png This article is about the plant. For the block with grass on it, see Aether Grass.

Tall Aether Grass is a type of plant block found in the Aether.


Tall Aether Grass can only be obtained with Arkenium Shears or Silk Touch enchanted tools.

Natural generation[]

Tall Aether Grass naturally generates on the surface of all islands and can be found very commonly. It generates in different colors depending on the biome or depending on what Aether Grass block it spawns on.

Swet Gel[]

When any type of Swet Gel is used on an Aether Grass block, it has a chance to spawn Tall Aether Grass and Flowers in a 15 by 15 area around the block it was used on.

Aether Grass can also be grown to its next tallest state using Swet Gel.


Tall Aether Grass is purely decorative in function, unlike Overworld Tall Grass. It will not drop seeds or need light to survive. It is slightly offset off of blocks and will be replaced if a block is placed on it.

Depending on what Aether Grass type a Tall Aether Grass block is placed on, the Tall Aether Grass will change to be the same type. If it's placed on Aether Dirt, it'll determine the grass type based on the biome.


  • In the original Aether mod, Tall Aether Grass was not present, and so islands were very barren as a result.
