Today’s guide will take you through the step-by-step process to create green dye right from scratch in Minecraft. Keep reading.

Green Dye Crafting Recipe


To begin the process of making green dye, you will need the following materials.

  • A Cactus
  •  A source of fuel (a bucket of lava, coal, charcoal, or wooden materials)
  •  A furnace

Of all these materials, obtaining cactus is perhaps the trickiest because of how difficult it is to find a desert in Minecraft. However, once you’ve got past this hurdle, finding cactus becomes really easy as they are abundant in the desert. You can collect cactus by breaking it in the same way you’d break any other block. Once you’ve done this step, you can proceed with making green dye!


How to Make Green Dye?

Once you’ve successfully obtained all the materials needed to make green dye, you can begin the process by following the steps given below:

  • Begin by opening the furnace. After you do so, place the cactus in the uppermost slot.
  • Fill the lowermost slot with any fuel of your choice.
  • Wait until the arrow in the middle is full and your cactus is completely cooked. Once your cactus is cooked, you can collect your green dye from the furnace!
