Sniffer, the winner of Mob Vote 2022, is finally a part of Minecraft, and it’s ready to find the rarest seeds for you. But how does this mob function and what all seeds can you find? Let’s explore the answer to these questions and more while learning how to find seeds with the Sniffer in Minecraft 1.20.
How Does the Sniffer Work in Minecraft
Sniffer is a functional mob of Minecraft 1.20 that goes around the overworld and searches for ancient seeds in the ground. To do so, it sits on the ground, puts its head inside the land, and then pulls out seeds of ancient plants. These seeds drop as an item and you can pick them up by walking over them.
Then, much like the other crops in Minecraft, you can easily plant the seeds, and they will grow into plants within a few minutes. You can get the following seeds with the help of a Sniffer – Torchflower Seeds and Pitcher Pods. We also have a dedicated guide on the Pitcher Pod and TorchFlower, two new decorative plants in Minecraft.
