To get rewards from dandelions, swing at the plant with your sword and cause a seed to fly into the air. As it descends, examine it by approaching the seed and pressing the A button. Doing this summons a Korok who’ll give you a Korok Seed!

If you don’t examine the seed in time, it’ll hit the ground and disappear. Fortunately, you can swing at the dandelion with your weapon again to create another seed, allowing you to repeat this puzzle multiple times.

Where to Find Dandelions in TOTK

While dandelions aren’t the only way to get Korok Seeds in Tears of the Kingdom, you will find them occasionally throughout Hyrule. The first one I found was on Great Sky Island, south of Gutanbac Shrine, at coordinates (0620, -1654, 1503). Since I was distracted by the cold, I only encountered it after returning to Nachoyah Shrine and traveling east.

Later in my playthrough, I noticed a few more of these, particularly around Hyrule Field. Below are the exact coordinates for some dandelions I found during my Tears of the Kingdom adventures:

  • North of Outskirt Stable: -1438, -0846, 0018
  • East of Outskirt Stable: -1057, -1320, 0061
  • North of Teniten Shrine: -0126, -0940, 0038
  • TOTK Great Sky Island Gutanbac Shrine Dandelion
  • TOTK Great Sky Island Dandelion Map Location
  • North of Outskirt Stable TOTK Dandelion
  • North of Outskirt Stable TOTK Dandelion Map Location
  • Tears of the Kingdom East of Outskirt Stable Dandelion
  • Tears of the Kingdom East of Outskirt Stable Dandelion Location
  • Hyrule Field TOTK Dandelion

While these aren’t the only ones in the game, they’re a good place to start if you want to pick up some Korok Seeds early!
