Cave Mushrooms That Glow – Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Collect ten glowing Brightcap Mushrooms for the adventurer sisters to earn their respect.....and some rewards.

Cave Mushrooms That Glow is a side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, where you help two stranded siblings. During this quest, you must explore a cave full of horrors to collect glowing mushrooms and deliver them to Nat.

In this guide, we will help you locate this quest and complete it as quickly as possible. To survive the unbearable cold of the Tabantha region, we recommend carrying warm gear like the Snowquill armor.

Talk to Meghyn and Nat near Brightcap Cave

To start the Cave Mushrooms that Glow quest, you must talk to two sibling NPCs named Meghyn and Nat. You can find them near the entrance of the Brightcap cave.

This cave is in the Tabantha Region, south of Tama Pond and east of Rito Village. Its exact coordinates are (-2993, 1662, 0199).

Once you talk to Meghyn and Nat, they will ask you for 10 Brightcap Mushrooms. This will start the quest and add it to your journal.

Collect Brightcap Mushrooms from the Cave

Once you find both Meghyn and Nat outside the cave entrance, you can simply interact with them.

This way, you will learn that Meghyn is scared of going into the cave before them as she fears the creatures inside. Whereas Nat isn’t that scared and is insisting that they go in and get 10 Brightcaps.


If you already have 10 Brightcap Mushrooms in your inventory, you can simply hand them over to Nat to complete the quest.

Brightcaps are basically purple mushrooms that can glow in the dark. You can spot the first one on the cave wall ahead of you, so simply jump off the ledge and climb the wall to get the first Brightcap in Totk.

Similarly, you will find two more down on the right side of the cave, so take your time to salvage these as well.

After that, you can go further inside the cave and find more of these Brightcaps that you can further collect. However, you need to be aware of Horriblin and Like-Like enemies in the cave.

Apart from the brightcaps that you come across in this cave, you will also find Brightbloom seeds in the surrounding wells in TotK.

Moreover, after going further into the cave, you will notice two glowing crystals on the top. So, climb the wall and slash these crystals with your weapon. This way, you will receive the Luminous Stone in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Similarly, if you delve deeper into the cave you will come across a small hut that resembles somewhat a shrine, but its entrance will be covered in thorns.

So, you can use fire to remove the thorns and enter it to find a chest lying there. After opening the chest, you will receive a Frostbite Shirt.

Next, you can keep exploring the cave, and after collecting all 10 brightcaps, you can return to the entrance of the cave to meet with Nat and Meghyn.

Quest Reward

After exchanging some dialogues with the siblings, you will be presented with the option to give them the brightcaps.

So, once you select that option and hand over the 10 brightcaps to them, they will be overjoyed, and Nat will give you the Spicy Tomato Mushroom Stew dish as a reward in return.

At the end of the discussion, they will say their goodbyes, and the side quest Cave Mushrooms That Glow will be marked as complete for you in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
