To locate this plant is quite tedious as it only grows in two different locations with the first location is nearby a cave entrance where you can find the Rope Gun and the Cross weapons. Find a river nearby, cross over to the other side, and search this area where you can discover Fireweed growing.

The second location is a little south of the previous location, which you can locate by following the same river. You’ll find the southernmost cave entrance, where you’ll need to cross the river away from the cave, and you can spot more Fireweed, and you can get Horsetail close by.
