You must complete “A Father’s Request” and “The Old Man and the Field” side quests to gain access to the Gysahl and Tantal Green plots.

You will need to kill a lot of Chocobo Eaters to get 8 Green Monster Moss. You can find a lot in Eremite Plains but also on the highways linking the Wildlands to Dead Dunes and Luxerion from Day 9. Day 6 is a good day to hunt them because by Day 7, they receive quite a substantial stat boost though Lightning can cope regardless.
