How to Get Moonlight Dragonlily in Warframe


If you are hunting Silver Grove Spectres in Warframe, you need to get your hands on Moonlight Dragonlily. You can only find the plant on the Grineer Forest tileset at nighttime. You can find them on the ground near grassy areas or pools of water.

Moonlight Dragonlily is a tall, green plant with a white flower that grows in small clumps around a level. To harvest the plant, you scan it with your Codex or Synthesis Scanners. When collecting this resource, you want to use the Cross-Matrix Widget upgrade you can purchase from Cephalon Simaris for your Synthesis Scanner for 50,000 standing.

The widget has a 45 percent chance of counting any successful scan as two scans, yielding twice the resources.

To harvest this plant, head to E. Prime or Mantle on Earth. Both missions occur on large tilesets with plenty of flat ground and pools of water, and you can harvest a lot of the plant in one run.

You need the Moonlight Dragonlily to make the Nightfall Apothoic. The locations to find all of the plants you need to make the Nightfall Apothic are listed here:

  • Dusklight Sarracenia – located in the swampy waters of the Grineer Shipyard Missions. (Ceres)
  • Moonlight Dragonlilies – found at nighttime in Grineer Forest missions. (Earth)
  • Sunlight Threshcones – found during the daytime in Grineer Forest missions. (Earth)

If you need to check what time of day it is in-game, you can use websites like Deathsnack’s Stuff, or Warframe Hub. These sites are the easiest way to see what time it is on Earth in Warframe, and how long is left in the day/night cycle.

Keep in mind that your Helios Sentinel cannot automatically scan these resources or any other plant resource in the game. You must use your Codex or Synthesis Scanner to harvest them.
