Nether Wart

Nether wart (also known as Nether stalk) is a plant grown in the Nether. It can be found within Nether fortresses around staircases. Nether wart can be planted on soul sand, where it will grow. Nether wart is a critical ingredient in brewing as it is used to make the awkward potion, which is used as the base for most other potions.
