For the quest, you get clues as you go along, so you will know if your on the right track, you dont need to check the venus fly trap surrounded by bog smile I would also make sure that your using the right tool, as I didnt the first time I tried to do the quest, and wasted quite a bit of time, good luck with the quest.
I've been having trouble with this quest as well.
Do you remember which tool you are supposed to use? I'm almost certain that I used the magnifying glass on each plant, but I haven't gotten any clues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
