Although many items are considered to be either collectibles or crafting materials, a Dandelion is neither of them. This bright yellow, somewhat shiny flower is actually a puzzle. That is right, a puzzle! Solving this puzzle will grant you a Korok Seed. These seeds can only be gained by solving one of the many Korok puzzles around the map, and the Dandelion is one of those.

A Korok seed can upgrade your inventory and even increase the amount of ammo you can store on your person! Once you solve the Dandelion puzzle, take the seed to Hestu, and he will help you. 

Tears of the Kingdom Dandelion Puzzle Solved

To obtain a Korok seed from the Tears of the Kingdom Dandelion, you need to actively engage in solving a Dandelion puzzle. Don’t worry; it’s a straightforward process involving just a few simple steps. You can follow the instructions below to secure your Korok seeds!

First of all, approach the Dandelion while equipping one of your preferred weapons. Refer to the guide on the Best Weapons in Tears of the Kingdom to choose the most suitable weapon for the task at hand. Then strike the Dandelion with the weapon of your choice.

As soon as it touches the ground, a Dandelion seed will briefly appear and then vanish, respawning as the original flower.

  1. To obtain the Tears of the Kingdom Dandelion seed, you must strike the flower and anticipate its landing spot.
  2. Reach that spot before the seed touches the ground. It’s important to note that Link won’t automatically pick up the seed, and you must press the ‘A‘ button on your Switch to collect it.
  3. Each time you strike the Dandelion, it will land in a different location, so pay close attention to its trajectory while it’s airborne.
  4. Although it may seem challenging, you’ll have a few seconds to predict its landing spot and get there just in time.
  5. Once you successfully retrieve the Dandelion seed, a hidden Korok will spawn before you and say aloud, “Ya Ha Ha! You found me!” The Korok will reward you with a Korok seed before continuing its journey.

By following these steps, you will acquire a Korok seed. Take this seed to Hestu, who will help you increase your inventory and other perks associated with the Korok seed.
