In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you'll find plenty of Korok Seeds that you can exchange with Hestu for an extra inventory slot.

The mysterious flower is located on one of the snow-covered peaks of Great Sky Island. It is impossible to interact with it. The Dandelion will fly up in the air when you hit it with any weapon. When a flower falls to the ground, it disappears instantly.
Dandelion is in the winter part of Great Sky Island. You can find it when you visit Gutanbac Shrine during The Closed Door main quest. If you want to catch Dandelion at a later stage of the game, teleport to Nachoyah Shrine, exit the cave and use the glider to quickly fly over to the hill where the flower is.

When you get there, hit the flower with your weapon and quickly jump down to the lower rock. Wait until the flower starts to fall and quickly interact with it before it reaches the ground. When you catch a Dandelion, Korok will appear. The creature will be happy that you found the flower - you will receive one Korok Seed.
If you don't manage to catch a Dandelion the first time, don't worry. You can repeat this action multiple times. The flower blooms again after a moment.
In the game you will find plenty of opportunities to collect Korok Seeds. They can be hidden under a stone, or associated with mini-games and puzzles that you will encounter while traversing the vast map of the kingdom of Hyrule. You can exchange Korok Seeds with Hestu for additional slots in Link's inventory. Thanks to them, you will be able to carry more weapons and shields with you.

You can come across Hestu completely by accident. We managed to find him while traveling to Rito Village, near Lindor's Brow Cave and Lindor's Bow Skyview Tower. Then we came across Hestu's Concerns side adventure. Poor Hestu was afraid to walk past the aggressive trees. After eliminating the threat, we were able to give Hestu a few Korok Seeds, thanks to which the creature danced a strange dance, increasing the capacity of Link's pouch. Do not ask how it works, it just works.
You should know, however, that Hestu never stays in one place for too long. You will also not be able to give him all the Korok Seeds at once. After a few dances, Hestu may get tired and just walk away.
During our next visit to Lookout Landing, we noticed Hestu by a large tree in the settlement. As you can see, Hestu is a truly free spirit, he can go wherever he wants.
