How To Obtain

 This is a common currency given as a quest reward, from Blossoms of Wealth, defeating monsters or found by opening chests throughout the world.

Fungal Spores x18, Luminescent Pollen x30, and Crystalline Cyst Dust x36

These can be purchased from Paimon's Bargains or collected from defeated Fungi enemies in Sumeru. Pollen and Dust are rarer drops, so you'll likely have to farm Fungi enemies to stock up on them. You can also convert three Spores into Pollen and three Pollen into Crystalline Cysts at a crafting bench.

All forms of Lazurite are dropped by completing the following weekly bosses in the Trounce Domains, these are:

A flower can be given to the player from the NPC Jut, who resides in the Grand Bazaar in Sumeru City, or from the NPC Dana who resides in Pardis Dhyai in Sumeru. Padisarah can also be found through foraging in the areas around Vanarana and near Vissudha Field.
