Cultivation is one of the sixteen Shards of Adonalsium and one of the three Shards located on Roshar.

Little is known of Cultivation except a reference by the figure of the Almighty (a god according to Vorinism) in one of Dalinar's visions.[citation needed]

Cultivation is worshipped by the western peoples of Roshar (i.e., the Shin), and may be responsible for spren relating to physical phenomena.

I (the Almighty) cannot see the future completely. Cultivation, she is better at it than I.[1]

Q&A with BrandonEdit

Q: What are Cultivation's feelings with regards to the Stormfather?

A: Cultivation's feelings ... I don't think that has spoilers. Cultivation is, um uhhh [long pause] I just have to decide how I can say things that are not spoilers. Cultivation ... the Stormfather reminds her of certain things about someone else she knew, and she feels the same way about the Stormfather in some ways as this person she knew.[2]
