Best Minecraft 1.20 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!

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.

Lots-of-Lush

Seed: 7351978043231109544

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.

Lush Fall

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.

Lush Secrets

This Lush Cave looks basic, but it has plenty of hidden treasures for players to find. Java players will be able to find a mineshaft combined if they venture straight into it. Bedrock players will not have the same mineshaft, but they will have buried treasure in the nearby area. Make sure to explore every pathway in the cave's entrance to get the most out of this seed.

Axolotl Aquarium

Seed: 2125168685608816153

This Lush Cave is unique in that it is nearly entirely underwater. This makes it perfect for finding Axolotls and Tropical Fish so long as you have the proper gear but limits the glow berries and spore blossoms to small areas beneath the water. Players who enjoy crafting unique builds could transform the stone and deepslate blocks around the cave into glass to turn it into a proper aquarium.

What was once a beautiful, thriving Lush Cave has been overrun by lava, monsters, and more. Axolotls and Tropical Fish populations have declined, putting them at risk of total extinction. If you can safely remove the lava falls and destroy the monsters that have taken over, perhaps you can help the native species repopulate.

Lush Desert Spawn

Seed: 6901246630908667560

If you want a Lush Cave and you want it now, look no further than this seed! You spawn directly within a Lush ravine in a Desert. Creative players can work on expanding the cave out into the surrounding sands and seas to create a beautiful lush oasis, while more survival-type players can explore the cave and use it to dig deeper into the earth. If the cave is combined with the nearby Coral Reef, this Lush Cave seed may become one of the most beautiful worlds ever seen in Minecraft!

Small Lush Cave in a Taiga Hill

Seed: 2603597979974453247

This small Lush Cave hidden in the side of a mountain is perfect for players who want to gather the Lush Cave's special loot without intending to make their home in one. There is a much larger Lush Cave beneath the surface for those who want more of the biome and are willing to risk their lives to get it. Players will be able to find a few Taiga Villages in the area, with Java players having a few ruined portals as well.

Open-Air Lush Cave in Bamboo Jungle

Seed: 302912650679026252

The light grey clay and blue waters of this Lush Cave stand out from the greens and browns of the Bamboo Jungle, making it easy to spot. On the surface it looks like a shallow cave, but there is a drop on the right side that transports players directly to deepslate. Java players will find a mineshaft in this area that makes it well worth the exploration. Stock up on moss and spore flowers while searching the cave for diamonds and other rare minerals.

Lush Staircase

Seed: 5422607315176607327

While many Lush Caves look like giant green caverns, this one forms a staircase down to Deepslate. If you're looking to gather plenty of ores, you may as well do it while picking some Moss and Glowberries from this cave! It would be a gorgeous foundation for an intricate mossy mine, but it could also easily be turned into your cozy home.

Hidden Desert Oasis

Seed: -5299574687886455943

This Lush Cave cave acts as a sacred oasis from the Desert above. There are Desert Villages in the land above as well, but they have not yet discovered the oasis. Dig up the surface to bring this Lush Cave out into the open, thus bringing life back to the Desert.

Life Above Death

Seed: -3136369188545246726

This Lush Cave brings life to the world beneath the surface, but a Deep Dark and an Ancient City lie even farther below! Only by venturing into both will you discover if the life of the Lush Cave will be snuffed out by the expansive nature of the Deep Dark. Braver players could even work toward spreading the Lush Cave into the Ancient City to combat the Skulk.

Lush Mountainside

Seed: 6897741820527507854

This seed spawns you in a gorgeous hilly Taiga. Heading northwest from Spawn will lead you to a giant hill containing a Lush Cave! The cave has two sections; one penetrates deeper into the ground while the other extends through the mountain. The portion of the cave extending through the mountain is visible from the outside, making it the perfect spot for building fancier Lush Cave structures.

Underground Heavenly Garden

Seed: -1918831654961711687

This Lush Cave is reminiscent of a whimsical underground garden! Moss and Azalea trees can be found at the cave entrance, while the Lush Cave itself extends all the way down to deepslate. There are multiple layers of glow berries, moss, and water pools to explore. What makes this cave doubly special are all of the diamonds that can be seen sprinkled throughout it.

Unstable Lush Cave

Seed: -3472137947621758527

While this Lush Cave is beautiful, the lava pools within it could potentially light the whole thing on fire! Avoid them and tread cautiously to find all of the treasures hidden within the cave. Bedrock and Java players will both have a Savannah Village nearby for easy trades and resources. Don't forget to investigate the nearby Warm Ocean, as it is filled with plenty of treasures, from Warm Ocean Ruins to shipwrecks.
