I have been exploring in the nether for Nether Warts and I already found 2 fortresses but it seems that there is no Nether Wart in both the fortress.

I know it is in a room with stairs in the middle of the room and soul sands beside the staircase but I can't find any room similar to this.

How can I get Nether Wart without the Nether Fortress? Is it possible to get them through the Wizards (as in villagers that have potions)?


Nether wart sometimes generates naturally in nether fortresses as a plant, in patches near stairwells.

Seems as though you are really just unlucky. They have a chance of spawning near every stairwell

Nether wart can be found in 19.0% of fortress chests in stacks of 3–7.

You may also find them in chests in the fortress


  • Thanks! I was able to find 5 nether wart in one of the chests. Now I got to farm these and make some potion! – Foreyan Jun 23 '19 at 9:02
