      I've done every botanical research quest there is and it still doesn't appear. EVERY SINGLE ONE. I went to the botanical research guy in astera and there is no exclamation mark there. Help!

        I have done everything mentioned by everyone in the comments but the quest just won't appear. Turns out -> you actually need to complete a 2 star quest called: and get the initial botanical research center 'harvest box' upgrade first. This is the real prerequisite before "storage solution" and "to hold a harvest" deliveries.

          For everyone who has the prerequisites for this quest and still doesn't have it, make sure you talk to the botanic research guy in Astera BEFORE going to Seliana to talk to the Sailor. That is how you get the quest.

            Finally get to do it. 1st. to make sure u solved "storage solution" and "to hold a harvest", go to the npc "Resource Center" and make sure u solve the 2 delivery, go get the 2x aqua sac and 1x torrent sac to finish. do the 1st one, talk to the laid-back botanist to get the 2nd one and get the item and go back to the resource npc to solve the next one. (u can also press escape and check the resource center there, but u can complete it from there, need the npc. 2nd. Based on one of the previous anonymous comment here, talk to the seliana npc "seliana sailor" basically the 1st npc in front of u at seliana, he will give u the quest. I spent few hours figuring this out... Good luck and enjoy. _____________ Aqua Sac: Torrent Sac:

                  Make sure you check the NPC "Resource Center" to make sure you complete the 2 delivery quest that requires 2x aquasac and 1x torrent sac. (need the npc to complete it, the resource center at your ESC button cant complete) After that travel to Seliana and talk to seliana sailor (in front of where u spawn) to get the quest.

                    I found that "Your Storage Solution" had never unlocked for me, but then I randomly completed a delivery for a HR Teostra item and then the laid back researcher had it for me. This was the last thing I needed to unlock Secret of the Ooze and it was infuriating that I couldn't get it to appear.

                      All prior Delivery Requests related to the Botanical Researcher are required for this quest to become available. This includes requests such as "To Hold a Harvest" and "Supply Solution."

                        To unlock this make sure you've been completing the botanical research quests. Be sure to speak with the team in seliana and astera.

                          How do you unlock this quest? Cuz I apparently don’t have it unlocked, yet I went to search for an SOS flare, completed it, and it still says I don’t have it
