Where do I find Sugar Cane in Minecraft?

Sugar Cane is located around water.

To find Sugar Cane, all you have to do is travel around bodies of water. They can be found growing near these wet areas. They essentially look like tall green sticks growing out of the ground much like bamboo.

After acquiring your Sugar Cane strands you can arrange these sugar canes on your crafting table similar to the image below:

The crafting of paper will create 3 papers in Minecraft at once.

After you’ve crafted the paper, you may then transfer it to your inventory. You can make paper fairly early on within the game by simply gathering wood to build your crafting table and then getting your Sugar Cane for the actual paper itself.

If you are able to get several strands of Sugar Cane, we recommend growing the next batch near your home as its an item that is not as abundant as others and has multiple use cases. All you need is a small body of water and you can have yourself a Sugar Cane farm as pictured below.
