Starting out[edit | edit source]

The entrance to the maze.
  • Talk to Horacio in East Ardougne and accept the quest. (Chat 22)
  • Talk to Wizard Cromperty in his house to the north-east of the market. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to an RPDT employee south of the southern bank in Ardougne.
  • Open the smelly package on the table.
  • Return to Wizard Cromperty. (Chat 1)
  • Make a pot lid (any pot lid acquired before this point will not work). The Potter's wheel and Pottery oven in the north-West of East Ardougne or Draynor will work.

  • Talk to Garth, the farmer located at the fruit tree patch in Brimhaven north of the lodestone. (Chat 2)

Items needed: pot lid, filled plant pot, empty pot
  • South-east of the nature altar, enter the maze by climbing the vine (north side). Do not leave the maze until you have followed all steps in this section.
  • Navigate the maze to reach the roots using the solution provided.
  • Once you reach the root, dig the loose soil, cut the root, then use it on your plant pot.
  • If it does not grow, dig up and cut a different root. Out of the five roots in the area, only one of them can successfully grow. Try a different root until it works.
  • Once it grows, use the plant pot on your empty pot to make a sealed pot. Fast travelling before covering the plant will destroy the clipping.

Items needed: Hatchet, or melee weapon with hatchet on tool belt
Items recommended: Antipoison potion for lower levels
  • Return to Horacio and speak to him.
  • Use your sealed plant pot on the east patch to plant the vine.
