Tentative Classification Location Data Analysis Image

Cardacha cthonis Voeld Other submitted names: thulus stem, octopus plant

Despite its appearance, this plant has extremely nutritious seeds tucked into the stem coil. The stem is also water-rich and could be easily peeled. Cardacha cthonis.png
Diplazium dizona Kadara Other submitted names: sword fern, stickgrass
Nutritional content: Acceptable
Gathered and properly cooked, these plants would be a tasty source of vitamins and minerals. Diplazium dizona.png
Lactarius assefa Havarl Other submitted names: thatchcap mushroom, soldier's joy

These mushrooms are rich in protein and could quickly bulk out rations, but unless prepared carefully they would have a sour aftertaste. Lactarius assefa.png

Nutritional content: High
A succulent segmented gourd with a high water content. The flesh surrounding the seeds could be eaten raw, or sliced and dried for storage. Lagenaria lunarium.png

Rheum taelkarum Kadara Other submitted names: broad-leafed taelk, reservoir plant
Nutritional content: Extremely high
Both water-rich and full of nutrients, this attractive plant appeared to defend against predators with a peppery taste. This can be countered with an enzyme supplement. Rheum taelkarum.png
Ruberia majora Kadara Other submitted names: longcoral, crimson longfrond
Nutritional content: Medium
This plant has a high protein content, though its tough fibers and thick roots would require a long cooking time. Ruberia majora.png
Sargania fructanis Havarl Other submitted names: red-veined saragras, candy plant
Nutritional content: Medium
The stems of this plant produce a red syrup with a surprisingly high sugar content. However, it will stain both armor and teeth if spilled. Sargania fructanis.png

Notes[edit | edit source]

This mission cannot be completed while the protestors are occupying Hydroponics during Sleeping Dragons.

The building next to the plant sample Lagenaria lunarium is related to the mission The Rebel. It is advised to start The Rebel mission before visiting this location to acquire that mission first.
