The Torchflower is a brand new plant coming in the Minecraft 1.20 update. It has multiple uses and is in fact one of the upcoming flowers teased during the 2022 Minecraft Live.

During the announcement that the Sniffer would be the next mob, it was teased that this creature would sniff out new seeds for unique flowers. Now, as more features are revealed, we have the first seed found by this adorable Sniffer.

How to get a Torchflower in Minecraft

As previously mentioned, the Torchflower is an item located by the Sniffer. First, you’ll need to locate a Sniffer by hatching it. Once that’s done, follow it around until it digs up a seed.

This will likely be the Torchflower seed you’re looking for. Then, if you want the full flower, plant it near some water and wait for it to grow.

Once you have a Torchflower it’s then important to know what you can do with it, other than find it, grow it, and place it down around your home.

The main use for the Torchflower is to breed Sniffers. If you have two Torchflower seeds and two Sniffers, you’ll be able to successfully breed them. While you’ll still need to find two through eggs, this will make repopulating your world with Sniffers much easier.

Currently, the only other use the Torchflower has in Minecraft is to create orange dye. Unfortunately, despite the name, this does not act as a torch.

However, since the 1.20 Minecraft update isn’t out yet and the developers are still experimenting, we can expect there to be more uses and perhaps more plants so be sure to check back soon to see if anything’s changed with these beautiful plants.

That’s everything we know about Torchflowers including where you can get them and what you can do with them. While loading up your next Minecraft world, be sure to take a look at some of our handy Minecraft guides and content:
