Getting the Head Mushroom is one of the main tasks you must do to complete the Genshin Impact quest: the Cooking, The Flavor of Nature. In this mission, the Aranara creature, Arachatora, will need your assistance in obtaining this item for his cooking training. Once you go to the designated area, you’ll come across two enemies that can be quickly taken down if you have a Cyro user since there is a puddle of water where you can freeze and attack them.

After you’ve defeated them, you must trigger the water draining mechanism to claim the Head Mushroom (the cooking ingredient is underwater), as shown here:

Go deeper inside the cave, and you’ll find a Withering Zone that you’ll need to clear up in order to grab the item. If you aren’t sure how to get rid of this new decaying area of Genshin Impact, your goal is to acquire Dedrograna (the green orb within a wooden structure) and perform a Charged Attack or an Aimed Shot on the smaller Withering Branches. As a result, an enemy will appear in front of the Tumor of the Withering that you must eliminate.

Those who have cleared up the Withering Zone can finally go to Head Mushroom and give it to Arachatora, thus finishing the Cooking, The Flavor of Nature quest.
