In Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, you will encounter various hidden chest puzzles that are essential for completing The Architect side quest. These puzzles can be identified by an empty square platform. Once solved, a chest appears on the platform. One of the earliest puzzles you will come across is the Hyrcanian Forest Red Grass puzzle.

The Architect side quest is an intriguing questline that requires you to solve all nine hidden chest puzzles in PoP: The Lost Crown. Each puzzle has its unique symbol associated with it, which you must activate on the tablets near the Architect.

To find the puzzle, head straight east from the The Haven Wak Wak Tree, as shown in on the map below. The puzzle is located in a room with four red grass patches on different platforms.

How To Solve The Hyrcanian Forest Red Grass Puzzle in The Lost Crown

At first glance, this puzzle may appear perplexing as there are no obvious clues or instructions. However, the red grass in the room serves as a hint for solving the puzzle.

To solve the Red Grass Puzzle in the Hyrcanian Forest, you must quickly remove the red grass on each platform. This can be done by using melee attacks, arrows, or the Chakram.

Jump on each platform and destroy the grass until none remains. Once all the grass is cleared, the hidden chest will appear at the bottom of the room on the square pedestal. That’s when you’ll know you’ve successfully solved the Hyrcanian Forest Grass puzzle.
