How to solve the Apam Woods Luxurious Chest rune puzzle in Genshin Impact

This puzzle is a logistical nightmare.

While exploring Apam Woods, you might encounter strange runes beside dull mushrooms. By reviving the mushrooms with Dendro, you'll light up the runes and solve a puzzle that will reward you with a Luxurious Chest. The puzzle is easy, but due to Apam Woods' topography, finding the runes can be a bit of a headache.

Once you're done with the jungle adventure above, you can head back to the small hut you passed by while searching for the first rune. If you forgot the way, here are the directions again. From the Teleport Waypoint northwest of Apam Woods, turn left and glide toward the Clusterleaf of Cultivation. Follow the path of the Four-Leaf Sigils until you reach the platform circled in the image above.

Approach the runes to the left of the hut (obscured by the plants) to prompt a Luxurious Chest to spawn. If it doesn't spawn, try relogging to debug. And if that doesn't work, then backtrack and make sure you've lit up all seven runes.
