I tried multiple times on different worlds with cleaned out minecraft jars to just place a sapling on the ground. Every time i tried to the game glitched out (pictures below). I can exit out of minecraft and reload that same world only to find the world still locked in that way.
Way to trigger it
Pick up a sapling
then hold the sapling in your hand.
The game glitched out no matter what i did with the sapling, throwing it away or placing it on the ground.
Please help because i want to play minecraft. Thank you.
