This article is about the craftable pot used to grow flowers. For the breakable pot that contains loot, see Pot.

The Clay Pot is a piece of Furniture that can be placed anywhere. After some time has passed, a flower will start growing out of it. This flower cannot be cut the same way as its grass relatives and instead needs to be removed with Pickaxe like a Block. Additionally, you can plant various herbs seeds in empty pots.
