In this article we’ll cover everything you need to know about crafting & using a composter in Minecraft.
What Does the Composter Do?
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.
How Do You Use the Composter?
You can find a composter organically on farms inside of NPC villages.
You can also craft the composter. It is easy to make & only takes a few materials. To craft one you will need 7 wooden slabs of any wood type.
Follow the crafting recipe below to see how the composter is made.
Once you have the composter crafted you can begin adding plant & food items to it & begin the composting process.
When you empty the composter you will receive 1 bone meal.
You can also add a hopper to your composter which will automatically pull bone meal from it when it is full.
This can be helpful for creating a large farm or a machine that auto composts & creates bone meal for you.
A hopper or dropper can also be added above the composter which can be used to fill it & create an automatic process.
