Podzol is a block that was added in the Minecraft 1.7 update and 0.9.0 for the Pocket Edition. It has a similar look to standard grass, but the top texture is covered with dead leaves. It doesn't spread. If it is mined without Silk Touch, it'll turn into regular dirt. This unique block is one of two blocks, the other being mycelium, that allows a player to place and cultivate mushrooms at any light level.
- Podzol does not spread to adjacent blocks like grass.
- Podzol is found in the Mega Taiga Biome.
- Podzol must be mined with Silk Touch to be harvested.
- Dead Bushes can be placed on podzol, but not on grass or normal dirt.
