|A palaeoraphe sapling next to a compsognathus.|
The palaeoraphe sapling is the sapling form of the palaeoraphe tree. It is created like all other prehistoric plants, by analyzing a plant fossil and then cultivating the petrified palaeoraphe sapling. They also can be dropped from palaeoraphe leaves. It works like all other Minecraft tree saplings; after some time, or after it is given sufficient bonemeal, it will suddenly grow into the adult version of itself. It can only be placed on grass blocks and cannot be placed in a flower pot. Prehistoric creatures will not eat it.
