Genshin Impact Naku Weed is a brand-new plant in Inazuma, and you might need quite a bit of it in the next few weeks.
Naku Weed is a new Ascension material. While it’s not as plentiful as some new Inazuma materials, there are ways to change up your Naku Weed farming methods and make life easier.
Genshin Impact Naku Weed - What is Naku Weed
If you grab Naku Weed in the wild, you might be wondering what it does, and there’s good reason for that. Until August, Naku Weed doesn’t have much purpose.
It’s a new level-up material that, for now, only works with Yoimiya. Yoimiya’s banner starts around August 10, so it’s not an urgent material to farm for now.
However, it might still be worth gathering Naku Weed for the future, even if you don’t want Yoimiya. Common plant items like Naku Week are often used in other character Ascension, e.g. Valberry for Noelle and Rosaria. This is still early in the Inazuma update, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see other new characters such as Baal or Sara end up requiring Naku Weed as well.

Genshin Impact Naku Weed - Naku Weed farm
You can plan a route to farm Naku Weed and even pick up Sakura Bloom along the way, or you can actually farm them for real in the Serenitea Pot thanks to a new feature in the 2.0 update.
Once you reach Inazuma reputation level 3 and get a Naku Weed from Madarame Hyakubei, you can complete “The Art of Horticulture” quest. Madame Ping gives you a Seed Dispenser gadget as a reward.
Equip that, and pick up items to turn them into seeds. Naku Weed in particular flourishes in Luxuriant Glebe area of the garden.
