Have you noticed some perfectly square areas of grass that look a little odd in Sumeru in Genshin Impact? These are the Nurseries in the Wild puzzles!
The Sumeru grass puzzles can leave players scratching their heads, especially as some are a lot harder to work out than others. There's also no rhyme or reason to finding them. Here, we've got each location detailed and what you will receive for completing these grassy brain teasers.
Genshin Impact 3.0 is in full swing in green Sumeru, so why not check our updated Genshin Impact tier list to see where newcomers Tighnari and Collei rank? There's also our Genshin Impact codes page for free Primogems, materials, and more.
Genshin Impact grass puzzle - How to complete the Sumeru puzzles
The puzzles are made up of squares of grass in a line, with corners and turns. They're often found near round houses that the Aranara dwell in, too.
The only patch that is lit it up is your starting point. As you step on the blocks, they will bloom with purple flowers. Head to the next block that glows and has 'butterflies' on it, and follow the puzzle around. Don't miss any squares, and don't step on the same square twice, or step off the puzzle, as it will reset.
Once you've completed the puzzle and picked the Vasmrti, the surrounding field will bloom into flowers and a chest will await you.
Grass puzzle locations
There are 12 Nurseries in the Wild puzzle locations, dotted across Sumeru. All of them are easily reachable from nearby Teleport Waypoints, or Statues of the Seven. You can wander freely around Sumeru and look for them yourself, but if you feel a little lost, we're here to help.
Note that you don't need to do these puzzles in any particular order, this is just how we wrote their locations as we found them.
|1||Head to the Statue of the Seven in Vanarana, and head west. It is just outside of the Vanarana area.|
|2||This is right above an underground Teleport Waypoint but is easily reachable by the Vanarana Teleport. Head South and a little West up the hill to find it.|
|3||Teleport to the Vissudha Field Waypoint left of Yazadaha Pool. The puzzle is directly below on the right-hand side.|
|4||Head to the Ashavan Realm Teleport Waypoint above the Yasna Monument, and then head South.|
|5||Head to the Ashavan Realm Teleport Waypoint left of the Yasna Monument, and then head South East. You'll see the field in front of a building below.|
|6||Head to the Ashavan Realm Teleport Waypoint right of the Caravan Rabat. Next, head a little North down from the hill.|
|7||Teleport to the Statue of the Seven outside the Pardis Dhyai and go to your right.|
|8||Head to the Ardravi Valley Teleport above Port Ormos, and then glide North to a fork in a path.|
|9||Head to the higher Teleport Waypoint on the South hills of Devantaka Mountain. Head to the left, and you'll see it below on the flat plain.|
|10||Head to the higher Teleport Waypoint on the South hills of Devantaka Mountain. Head to the North East, over the ridge and down to the flat plain.|
|11||Head to the Avidya Forest Waypoint above Vimara Village, and go straight right.|
|12||Head to the Avidya Forest Waypoint above the Chinvat Ravine on the right, and go to the right up to the cliff top.|
What do I get from these puzzles?
Next to these squares of grass, there's a wilted flower. When the puzzle is completed, it will bloom and become harvestable, giving you a Vasmrti flower. There are 12 of these available, one from each puzzle, and they can be planted in a field in Vanarana.
You will need to complete the 'Varuna Gatha' quest to unlock the plantable plots, however. The Aranara stationed here will also give you a furniture blueprint.
After harvesting the plant, you'll get a chest with rewards too like Mora, XP materials, and Artifacts. The completed fields will then grow Sumeru Roses.
