An Alocasia Plant

Alocasia is a short, fruit-bearing plant that can be found in the Elden Grove of Valenwood, but interestingly can be found across Mania, the northern region of the Shivering Isles. During the summer, the local Bosmer would cover the Alocasian leaves in silk so that the fruit can grow larger and become sweeter. It essentially slows down its growth. It is believed that Y'ffre takes the fallen fruit as tribute. It is very similar to the Water Hyacinth, however, this flower does not bear fruit.[1]

Harvested Ingredient: Alocasia Fruit

Aloe Vera[edit]

An Aloe Vera Plant

The Aloe Vera are tall and leafy plants that are found mainly in southern Hammerfell, but also in warmer climates like the Gold Coast in Cyrodiil, in pockets throughout the coastline and its hills. The Yokudans were well aware of the herb's potential in medicine, often using it to staunch the flow of blood and to heal wounds. It can be mixed with other ingredients to create elixirs, like combining the aloe's lacquer with a crushed leaf can lessen the effects of pox.[2] According to local legend, making a concoction with Ginkgo can boost one's stamina.[3]

There is a variety of aloe that exists across Tamriel, among which include the Salloweed Aloe in the vicinity of Phaer on the island, Auridon. The alchemist, Hendil learned that it could be used as a powerful sedative against his vampiric son.[4] The aloe vera of Vakka-Bok have been harvested by the Root-Whisper Tribe, deep in the wilds of Murkmire. It was known for its unnaturally fast healing properties, such as keep wounds from festering and soothes burns. While many people do not know why it heals so well, it is theorized that the arcane magic of the sun had given the plant its abilities.[5]

Arrowroot Plant[edit]

An Arrowroot Plant

Arrowroot is a medium-sized, thick, rubbery tuber with tall leaves and small white flowers that comes from Valenwood. The plant is considered rare because it is scrawny and is rather unnoticeable. The most important part of the plant is the root because of its magical properties. Grinding it into paste can enhance the consumer's accuracy with projectile weaponry.[3] Though it is commonly found in Valenwood, there is a relatively large concentration across the Gold Coast, between Anvil and Kvatch. Every so often, they can also be found around the southern Niben Bay, the Larsius River, and even the Leyawiin outskirts.

An Ash tree

A common tree that grows all around Tamriel, known for its denseness and flexibility.[6]. It is generally found in regions such as Craglorn in Hammerfell, where it is often twisted and angled, but also heavy.[7] It is also found in abundance in the eastern Gold Coast, which is riddled with highlands and dotted with dense forests of ash and other trees. These are harvested by the logging industry of Colovia, which supplies the great demand for construction and weaponry.[8]

The wood is sanded and used to craft bows, staves, and shields. It is generally stronger than birch, but weaker than mahogany, and is on par with ironweed, ironhide and galatite. Various factions from across the provinces use either ash or yew when they make their bows, among these include the Thieves Guild,[9] and the Order of the Hour.[10] Other groups such as the Welkynar uses it for the haft of their staves, and some factions like House Hlaalu import these materials, since the funguswood in their homeland is far more inferior than the ash or yew wood.[11]
