Everything you need to make Red Dye

Red Dye is a primary dye color in Minecraft. Although it’s a primary color, farming is pretty easy as long as you have a Beetroot farm, or you’re lucky enough to find a correct Wandering trader.

How to craft Red Dye in Minecraft

#1 Collect 1x Poppy

Poppy is a small red flower that naturally spawned in certain biomes. They are Plains, Sunflower Plains, Forests, Birch Forests, Dark Forests, Flower Forest, and Meadow biome.


You can also find Poppy in Village’s chests. Or by killing an Iron Golem.

#2 Collect 1x Red Tulip

Red Tulip is a tall and thin flower in Minecraft that is generated in Plains, Sunflower Plains, and Flower Forest biome. If you find the right place, you can use Bone Meal to farm them even more.

#3 Collect 1x Beetroot

Beetroot is a new crop in Minecraft. You can only find them in the farmland area in the Village structure.


#4 Collect 1x Rose Bush

Rosh Bush is a two-block tall flower that only can be found by natural generation only. That means you can’t farm them properly.

The only way to farm Rose Bush is to exploit a bug (or feature) from Mojang, where you use Bone Meal to Rose Bush to duplicate them.
