With exciting Minecraft 1.17 Caves and Cliffs Part 1 the update, which comes out on June 8, adds a lot of new items to the game. One of these items is called a “hood” and comes in two different shapes.
Droplet plants will be found in the lush cave biome, and a new biome has been added in an update for Minecraft 1.17. Below is everything you need to know about the two variants of drops: what they are, their generation and their use.
Everything you need to know about Dripleaf in Minecraft 1.17 Part 1
Small droplets will naturally generate inside the biome of lush caves and can be obtained with scissors to cut them. If a player tries to use any other object to collect the cap, it will break instantly and nothing will drop.
Small droplets spawn naturally, but do not grow on their own. Which means that they will grow (into large drop-shaped leaves) only with the use of bone meal. If the player procures small droppers, they can place them on clay, blocks of moss, dirt, arable land, grass blocks and podzol, as long as these blocks are placed under water.
Large droplets spawn naturally in lush cave biomes and can be as high as one to five blocks. Unlike small drops, large drops can be obtained with any tool. By destroying a large dropper plant, one large drop is dropped for each block of stem and leaf.
Large droplets, although they can spawn naturally, can also be degenerated by using bone meal on small droplets, as mentioned above. They also have more purposes than their smaller cousins (they can be used for parkour and platforms).
Players can stand on large dripleaves for 1 second (equal to 20 ticks in the game) before the dripleaf begins to tilt, becoming lower than the block and finally giving the player a warning that he will collapse. On top of that, one block tall large dripleaves can be used to keep the player crawling.
