This article is about the craftable pot used to grow flowers. For the breakable pot that contains loot, see Pot.

The Clay Pot is a furniture item in which a herb or flower seed can be planted. If left empty, wild grass plants will randomly grow out of it, provided the pot is placed on the surface or in Space.[1] The plant in a Clay Pot cannot be cut in the regular manner, e.g. via nearby swinging tools. Instead, it needs to be removed with a pickaxe, a drill, the Staff of Regrowth, or the Axe of Regrowth(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

  • Clay Pots have a similar function to Planter Boxes(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and placed Rock Golem Heads(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). However, herb seeds cannot be planted in Rock Golem Heads.
  • When using a Staff of Regrowth or Axe of Regrowth on a herb in a Clay Pot, the herb cannot be harvested unless it is blooming. It can still be harvested at any time by using a pickaxe or drill.



  • Desktop Fixed a bug where Clay Pots would instantly break when placed over a bottom-sloped block.
  • Desktop 1.0.5: All flowers and plants growing out of Clay Pots can only be retrieved using a pickaxe.
