After you complete The Gilded Cage in Chapter 4, you’ll be able to visit Algernon at his place in the northern outskirts of Saint Denis. Upon speaking to him, you’ll learn that he wants you to head out into the world and gather exotic plants and other animal parts for him. This is arguably the longest Stranger Mission in the game and it’s a good idea to accept it early and work on it as you progress through the game. The Interactive Map will show you where you can find everything but below you’ll find a short summary of where to find each plant per step.
