Weeds is an easy difficulty continuous event given to the Hero by Loren in Dead Island.


The Hero must find and retrieve five Gotu Kola for healing purposes.


  • Talk to Loren to start the quest.
  • She needs Gotu Cola to help treat the wounds of some of the injured villagers.
  • As you travel around the Jungle, collect as many Gotu Kola as you can while roaming.
  • Next time you're in the River Village, keep handing them in five at a time to Loren to receive cash.


  • Gotu Kola appear as reddish flowers and are usually found near water pools where clumps of trees are growing.
  • Gotu Kola has no other use, so don't worry about needing them for other quests or weapon mods.
  • When this quest is your actively selected quest, all Gotu Kola will appear as hand pickup icons on your map and minimap.
  • You can pick up Gotu Kola even after they disappear from your map. Also, like the Brand Champagne for Svetlana or the Water for Kim, these flowers go into your miscellaneous inventory, so you can have as many as you want.
