The composter in Minecraft is used to recycle various plant & food items into bone meal. The bone meal can then be used to fertilize other crops & make them grow faster.

Some of the items that you can’t recycle include (bamboo, poisonous potatoes, dead bushes, meat & fish).

When the composter reaches the 7th level of compost & is completely full with compostable items, you will receive 1 bone meal the next time you use it.
