� Cuttings: � 10 steps to propagating cuttings from Potash and Aubry :
1. Slice 1/8″ off base of 3-5″ cutting
2. Remove leaves within 1/2 ” of basal end and keep cuttings in bucket of cold water
3. Make a solution of 1 tablespoon “Dip ‘n Grow� to 1 quart water
4. Suspend basal end of cuttings in solution and soak for 24 to 72 hours
5. Use 10 x 20″ flats with �cuttings compost mix� (see table 1)
6. 50 cuttings per flat
7. Place on mist bench with bottom heat at 55-65 �F in winter and 65�Fin spring/summer
8. Shade from full sun
9. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 9-45-15 plant starter diluted to 1/2 strength and Maxicrop liquid kelp at 1/4 recommended strength
10. Transplant to shallow pots after 3-4 months or when roots fill-out flat
� Seeds: � Collect seeds from early September until first snowfall. � Cut entire inflorescence and place in paper bag upside down. � Allow to dry for 2 to 4 weeks inside of paper bag. � Using #30 screen, separate seeds from surrounding duff. � Grind up all flowers inside of the bag to get any remaining seeds. � Using the �Seed mix� (Table 1) in seedling flats, sew the seeds on the surface of the medium. � This is because of the size of each seed. � The seedlings from seeds will not be transplantable into a larger pot until a full year of growing. � Shade seedlings from direct sunlight with a shade cloth in the summer. � (Potash & Aubry , 1997)
� Transplanting: � The best time of year to transplant is winter or spring. � During the process, avoid handling the roots. � It is best to use a spoon for any transplantation of the seedlings into pots. � Once in the pots, keep under shade cloth for a few weeks and mist once or twice a day. � In the summer, mound up Douglas fir mulch around the seedlings and water the mulch every day. � (Potash & Aubry , 1997)
Soil or medium requirements: � C. mertensiana has been found to grow best in certain mixes meant for different forms of propagation material. � They are cuttings, seeds, and then medium for potting up seedlings.
Gerudo Korok Seed Locations
Our Breath of the Wild Interactive Map has the locations of all 900 Korok Seeds found in the game. It allows you the ability to zoom in and out, mark which ones you’ve already collected, and also find all the other goodies surrounding the seeds.
Below is a listing of just the 36 Korok Seeds found within the Gerudo Tower Region. You can check out our Korok Seed Locations guide for a full listing by region.
Korok Seed #1: Located just west of the Gerudo Tower, right at the south edge of the higher plateau. You will find a pinwheel and if you walk up to it, three balloons will appear. Shoot the balloons with arrows to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #2: Located west of the Gerudo Tower, on am uch lower ledge, near the entrance to the Karusa Valley. If you glance at your map, you will see a circle of rocks. Grab the one rock that is missing and put it in place to get the seed.
Korok Seed #3: Located just to the west of the Gerudo Tower. If you look closely on the map, you will see two circles of rocks that intersect with one another at the western edge of the higher plateau. There is one rock missing from the circle, but if you find the nearby rock, you can put it in place to get the Korok seed.
Korok Seed #4: This one is a bit of a tricky location. Based purely on its placement on the map, it does fall in the Gerudo region. However, it is located far down below, in the Karusa Valley that leads to the Yiga Clan Hideout. On a higher ledge at the south side of the valley, there are four statues. Offer up some Mighty Bananas to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #5: Located southeast of the Birida Lookout and southwest of the Taafei Hill, you will find a large bridge that extends over the gap. Once you drop down on top of the bridge, your entire map will scramble. Right in the center of this bridge, there is a block that you can use Magnesis on. If you walk to the west end of the bridge and look up at the cliff, you can see the solution of the block puzzle. The actual puzzle though is at the far east end of the bridge. Grab the block with Magnesis and walk over to the east end of the bridge. Place the block into the proper location to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #6: Located just southeast of the Taafei Hill. The start of this Korok seed is actually in the Wasteland Region. There is a lookout platform high up on the southeast side of the road. Step on the tree stump and then glide your way northwest towards the yellow circle to get the seed.
Korok Seed #7: Located east of the Taafei Hill, this also is a Korok seed that starts in the Wasteland region. There is a small bridge that extends over the main road and on the east side of the bridge there is a tree stump. Step on it and then run over to the yellow circle that barely finds its way into the Gerudo region.
Korok Seed #8: Southeast of the Zirco Mesa, on a small area that is flat, you can look up to the cliff to find a block puzzle. Use Magnesis to move the block to the proper location to get the seed.
Korok Seed #9: At the far southeast corner of the Gerudo Region. The best way to reach this area is to warp to the Key Namut Shrine back on the Great Plateau and glide to the west. At the far ledge, there is a well with a ball and chain attached to it. Use magnesis to place the ball into the well to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #10: Found on a lower ledge, just northeast of Mount Nabooru. There is a block puzzle and you have to use Magnesis to place the block in the proper location.
Korok Seed #11: Located on the Nephra Hill, if you look at your map you will find three large circles. There are smaller circles of rocks within the large circles and one of the circles is missing a rock right in the middle. The missing rock is located within the southwest circle, right in the middle of the large boulders. Grab it and put the small rock in the proper location to get the seed.
Korok Seed #12: Located directly north of the Gerudo Tower on a much higher elevation, just west of the Sapphia’s Table. You will find a large snowball and right down the path there is a hole. Pickup the snowball and drop it in the hole to get the Korok.
Korok Seed #13: Just north of the Sapphia’s Table, there is a circle of rocks on a higher ledge. One rock is missing and it is right at at the edge of the cliff. Carefully grab it and put it in place to get the seed.
Korok Seed #14: Just north of the Taafaei Hill, on a higher ledge you will find a circle of rocks. If you look carefully at the rock formation, you will find that there are three rocks and then a gap, followed by three more rocks. This pattern is broken when you see only two rocks next to each other, as well as a large rock that is out of place. Grab the large rock and place it next to the two rocks to complete the formation and get the seed.
Korok Seed #15: Located on top of the Zirco Mesa, you will find a small rock. Lift it up to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #16: Found at the northeast of the Zirco Mesa, there is a circle of rocks lower down on the cliffside. There is one rock missing from the circle and it is on a higher ledge nearby. Climb up the mountain, towards the southeast to find the rock. Grab it and carefully drop down below and place the rock in the proper location to get the seed.
Korok Seed #17: Found on the higher ledge at the easy side of the Laparoh Mesa. Here you will find a pair of large ice blocks. Melt the one further norther with a couple fire arrow shots. Examine the leaves that are left behind to get the seed.
Korok Seed #18: Found just west of the Lapoaroh Mesa and south of the Kuh Takkar Shrine. There is a large chunk of ice on a higher plateau and when melted, examine the leaves to get the Korok.
Korok Seed #19: Located just northeast of the Laparoh Mesa, far down the cliff there is a lone tree. Climb up to the top of the tree and examine the leaves to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #20: Located a bit east of the Laporoh Mesa and west of the Dalite Forest. You will come across a pinwheel and if you shoot the three balloons, a Korok Seed will appear.
Korok Seed #21: If you look at the your map, just north of the Laporoh Mesa, there are three oval shapes of rocks. The formation to the east is missing a rock, but it can be found in the middle of the formation to the west. Put the rock in its proper place to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #22: Northwest of the Laparoh Mesa, there is a bridge that extends westward. On this bridge there is a block puzzle with a rather simple solution. Use Magnesis to put the block in its proper location to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #23: Just to the east of the Gerudo Summit and west of the Cliffs of Ruvara, there is a series of ladders along the side of the cliff. At the very bottom you will find a lone rock and it has a Korok underneath.
Korok Seed #24: Just east of the Gerudo Summit, on a higher ledge you will find two rock formations. There is an extra rock in one of the formations and a missing rock in the other formation. The correct form of the rocks is a 3×3 grid of rocks, with a single rock on each side. Place the rock in the proper location to get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #25: On a higher ledge at the south portion of Meadela’s Mantle. Climb up and you’ll see the sparkling leaves moving around. Catch the fairy lights to get the seed.
Korok Seed #26: Southwest of the Meadela’s Mantle, you will find a large pillar with a block on top of it. You will need to use Magnesis to grab this block and then carry it eastward to the block puzzle. This can be a bit challenging as the range of Magnesis to the pillar is a bit short. I recommend climbing up to the top of the pillar, using Magnesis just to move the block to the eastern edge of the pillar. Then drop down and grab the block again with Magnesis, this time carrying it all the way over to the block puzzle and placing it in its proper spot.
Korok Seed #27: West of the Meadela’s Mantle, you will find a large wind geyser coming up from the ground and just to the west of it, there is a small tree stump with a leaf symbol. Step on it and it will create a yellow circle back to the east. Leap up and use the wind geyser to glide back easy and reach the yellow circle to get the Korok seed.
Korok Seed #28: You will find a circle of rocks on Rutimala Hill. There is one rock missing and if you place it in its proper location, the Korok will appear.
Korok Seed #29: At the south end of the Risoka Snowfield, just north of Rutimala Hill, there is a small plateau. Just to the west of it there is a small rock and you can lift it up to find the Korok.
Korok Seed #30: Found at the west end of the Gerudo Highlands, located just east of Mount Agaat. There is an ice block just northwest of the Kema Kosassa Shrine and if you melt it, you will find the Korok.
Korok Seed #31: At the northwest end of the region, just southwest of Hemaar’s Descent, you will find three large rocks on a very high platform. Just off the ledge way down below, there is a hole in the ground. You want to carefully push one of those rocks down below so that it lands in the hole.
Korok Seed #32: Located northwest of Mystathi’s Shelf, on a lower ledge, you will find a small tree stump. Step on it and a yellow circle will appear higher up the mountain. Climb up and reach it in time to get the seed.
Korok Seed #33: Found on Mystathi’s Shelf, you will find a circle of rocks, with one rock missing. It is located on the higher ledge that is off to the distance to the northeast. Grab the lone rock and bring it back to this higher platform. The small plateau is a bit higher up, but if you move just to the south of the plateau, you should be able to toss the rock so it lands on the higher plateau. Alternatively, you can use an Octo-balloon or Stasis to get it up there. Place it in its proper location to get the Korok Seed.
Korok Seed #34: At the northwest portion of the Gerudo Summit you will find a tree stump. Step on it and a yellow circle will appear to the southwest. Easily paraglide over to the circle to get the seed.
Korok Seed #35: West of the Gerudo Summit, there is a higher ledge that hangs over the Risoka Snowfield. At the far west of this area, there is a small block that you can grab with Magnesis. Carry it eastward and lift it up to the higher ledge. Carefully place it in the proper spot to match the two blocks and get the Korok to appear.
Korok Seed #36: At the east portion of the Risoka Snowfield, right near the ledge that leads up to the Gerudo Summit. There is a flower on this lower ledge and once you get it, flowers will begin to appear along the wall that leads up to the Gerudo Summit. This is a very steep climb and you’ll need some Stamina upgrades if you want to make the climb. Even so, the best bet is to climb up and get as many of the flowers as you can. If you fall back down, use Revali’s Gail to send yourself upward and continue to climb up to the top, getting all the flowers along the way.
