How to get glowing spores in the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
Sparkling Spores are a consumable item that can be collected in an empty bottle.
You may already be familiar with fungal spores, which are similar. These can be found by cutting out any common mushroom in Faron Woods and collecting the spores in a bottle. Mushroom spores do not have many useful properties on their own.
On the other hand, scintillators are much more useful. These spores can only be found in foamy mushrooms.
Look around the Faron Woods for sparkling mushrooms. Sometimes they are near the bird statues when entering the area. When you find one that glitters, take out an empty bottle and stand near the mushroom. Then press R while holding the bottle next to the spores to collect them. You can release the spores by holding the vial and pressing R again.
Here are some of the effects that sparkling spores can have when spilled on various things:
- Prevent bugs from flying away so you can easily catch them
- Stuns enemies, leaving them open to attack.
- Change the value of rubies (both higher and lower at random)
- Turn hearts into fairies
Each bottle of Sparkling Spores has five uses before you need to refill your bottle. Try to pour the spores on different objects and enemies to see what can happen.
