Nether Wart is a vanilla Minecraft plant, as well as a Tier 5 plant from Industrial Craft 2 (Tiers range from 1-8). It can be acquired from Nether Fortresses and Cross Breeding. You can plant Nether Wart into Crops directly, though their stats will all be 1.

In its initial stage of growth it is identical to Terra Wart, another Tier 5 plant.

Harvesting Nether Wart may yield either Nether Warts, Nether Wart Seed Bags, or both.

Recommended cross-breeding combos: Hops + Hops, Stickreed + Stickreed

Also, if you cross breed a Dandelion with a Rose, it has a small chance to create a Nether wart, though this is rare.
