Sculk blocks appear regularly in Minecraft’s Deep Dark biome. These were added in the 1.19 update, commonly called Wild. Although Sculk grows in a particular region of the game, you have the option to bring it home with you and grow it yourself. However, you need to follow some specific steps and make it work. Here’s what you need to know about how to grow Sculk blocks in Minecraft.
How to Grow Sculk Blocks
The only way to grow a Sculk block is by finding a Sculk Catalyst. This block looks very different from the standard Sculk blocks in that it has a distinct gray area underneath, making them look like bones. It should be easy to point out along with the traditional Sculk blocks.
Both of these blocks only spawn in the Deep Dark biome, which is a new area added in the Wild 1.19 update. When you find the Sculk Catalyst, you need to use a tool to extract it that has the Silk Touch enchantment. The block will break and you won’t be able to use it without using this enchantment.
When you’re ready, place the Sculk Catalyst in the spot where you want to grow your Sculk blocks. What you need to do next is to kill mobs near this Catalyst. It can be any mob you feel you can dispatch quickly or one you want to grind for experience or items, like chickens, cows, or pigs. When the mob dies near the Catalyst, it leaves behind the items it normally drops, and has a Sculk block below it, along with Sculk viens extending from the block. You can farm more Sculk blocks as you like outside of Deep Dark as long as you have the Sculk Catalyst.
