Best Minecraft 1.21 Lush Cave Seeds (Bedrock and Java)

Lush Caves were officially added to Minecraft in the 1.18 Caves & Cliffs Update. Veteran players found a renewed sense of joy and wonder in these green caves, while casual players like me found a reason to go back underground. If you're feeling a little lackluster about Minecraft, one of these seeds may be just what you need to reinstill your love for the game!

The entrance to this Lush Cave is only about 50 blocks from Spawn, making it super easy to find and enter. Java players will find part of a mineshaft at the start of the cave. While Bedrock players do not have the same fortune, they luckily have a Woodland Mansion! The Lush Cave itself has a small ravine within it as well as a staircase leading down to Deepslate.

At the base of this bamboo mountain lies a giant cavern with sections of Lush Cave. The Lush Cave covers the front of the cavern and a few areas in the Deepslate areas. Additionally, a small patch of Deep Dark biome is hidden near the front of the cavern. Java players have a Jungle Temple near this cave to sweeten up the deal.

Lush Hideaway

Seed: -1295803384901517031

This Lush Cave is small and cozy compared to many of the larger caves on our list. Its many tunnels are lit up by glow berries, making it the perfect Lush Cave to live in. The entrance is a small ravine, so you must build a safe way in and out. While the glow berries help prevent too many mobs from spawning, be wary as they won't stop Creepers from infiltrating the cave.

Lush Gap

Seed: 582435391659821610

This Lush Cave is hidden beneath the underside of a hill. The start of the cave contains glow berries, moss, clay, and plenty of water covering a staircase-shaped cave. Heading down this staircase leads players to a small drop to the deepslate layer. The glow berries light up the top portion of the cave and make it safer for players to cross. Farm them and plant them in the rest of the cave as natural light sources.

Slim Lush Ravine

A dainty and narrow Lush Cave ravine is the best part of this seed. It contains all of the materials you want from a Lush Cave, plus tons of monsters to farm for experience. If you're not afraid of a fight, this is a good seed to go for.

There is something magical about Lush Caves with their Spore Flower particle effects, moss, cute axolotls, and tropical fish. Their mysticism is emphasized in this seed through the presence of two lakes spilling water into the cave. Those wanting to breed axolotls in hopes of getting a rare blue one will have a lot of good luck with this seed.

Lush Alcove

Seed: 7567714737644180251

This small Lush Cave is at one end of the ravine you spawn in. It has clay, water, moss, and a few glow berries. If you want to expand the lush aspects of the cave, I recommend using bone meal on the moss blocks to spread it further through the ravine. Farming the glow berries will give you an easy source of food while being a convenient way to light up the ravine.

Dig beneath the island you spawn on to reach this Lush Cave. Keep in mind that you'll have to dig through part of the ocean before reaching this cave. While it's a dangerous way of spelunking, the cave itself is more than worth the risk! The Lush Cave fills a giant cavern with moss, glow berries, waterfalls, and even lava falls.

Lush Lake Cave

Seed: 713085873196302176

This Lush Cave is slightly hidden and looks much smaller than it truly is. Water from the lake pours into the cave, creating a waterfall that is home to multicolored Axolotls. Travel to the right in the cave to find a gap leading to a much larger portion of Lush Cave. This larger cave expands in multiple directions with more moss, glow berries, and even mineshafts to be found. It will drop you down to deepslate, so come prepared with food, tools, and wood.

This Lush Cave is hidden beneath the Badlands biome this world starts in. The entrance is only a short walk away, with Java players having a mineshaft right at the start. If you follow the waterfall to the bottom of the cave, you'll be able to find several diamonds and a Deep Dark biome! Having these two rarer cave biomes right next to Spawn is a treat for all Minecraft players.

Several Lush Caves can be found across this large Taiga biome. Some of them drop down to deepslate, while others remain relatively shallow. Java players have a shipwreck to explore if they get tired of searching for caves. In contrast, Bedrock players will have some Cold Ocean ruins.

If water is your thing, you'll love this Lush Cave! It is filled with both waterfalls and pools of water, plus hundreds of blocks of clay and moss. I recommend clearing it out and lighting it up with glow moss and lanterns to create a whimsical home base. Since it drops down to deepslate, you're sure to find a lot of diamonds while doing so!

Taiga Lush Crater

Seed: -6050001627388282786

This Lush Cave comes in the form of a small crater in the midst of a Taiga biome. The small waterfall allows Axolotls to spawn, making it a great place to gather them and moss blocks. There is a second Lush Cave a hundred blocks away that gives you the opportunity to gather more blocks if the crater isn't enough. The Taiga biome's blocks would go great with those of the Lush Cave when crafting a quaint cottage in the area.

The Lush Cave in this seed is filled with all of the resources you could ever need. There are lots of smaller rooms, so each room contains clay, dripleaf plants, glow berries, and moss in spades. The close quarters make ores on the walls and ceiling easier to gather as well. As a bonus, venturing deeper into the cave will lead you to a mineshaft.

Seed: pixie

If Lush is what you want, Lush is what you'll get in this seed. Upon spawning into the world, you'll find yourself beneath the tall walls of a Lush Ravine. Java players will spawn on a tree outside of this, but that just makes it easier to gather wood and hop on in. All players will be able to find amethyst geodes a short walk from the entrance of the cave.
