Starting outEdit

Jade vine maze location

The entrance to the maze

  • Talk to Horacio in East Ardougne and accept the quest. (Chat 221)
  • Talk to Wizard Cromperty in his house to the north-east of the market.
  • Talk to an RPDT employee south of the southern bank in Ardougne.
  • Open the package on the table.
  • Go back and talk to Wizard Cromperty.
  • Make a pot lid (any pot lid acquired before this point will not work). The Potter's wheel and Pottery oven in northern East Ardougne or Draynor Lodestones will work.
  • Talk to Wizard Cromperty.
  • Talk to Garth, the farmer located at the fruit tree patch in Brimhaven just north of the lodestone. (Chat 2)

  • Make sure you have the pot lid, plant pot, and empty pot in your inventory before you start the maze. The maze is located east of Shilo Village.
  • Enter the maze from the north by climbing the vine that looks like a claw. 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 up loose soil patches around the trunk.
  • Cut the root.
  • Put the root cutting in the plant pot.
  • If it does not grow, dig up and cut a different root and try again until it does grow.
  • Once it grows, use the potted plant on the normal pot to get a sealed pot.
  • Use the potted root on the empty pot and cover it with the lid (fast travelling before covering the plant will destroy the clipping).

The battleEdit

  • Go back and talk to Horacio.
  • Plant the vine in the nearby farming patch.
  • Prepare for a fight (bring antipoisons and optionally a hatchet as your weapon - having one in your tool belt will work, but it still requires the use of a melee weapon) and begin the battle.
  • Kill the vine by using a hatchet as a weapon.
  • Cut the remaining vine.
  • Talk to Horacio.
  • Quest complete!
