While the quest is active, Qi Beans can be found by breaking rocks, chopping down trees and stumps, cutting weeds, from Garbage Cans, killing monsters, breaking geodes, Artifact Troves, or Golden Coconuts, digging Artifact Spots, shaking Palm Trees on Ginger Island , opening chests and breaking crates in the Volcano Dungeon, and fishing. They can also be made by placing a Qi Fruit in a Seed Maker.
All Qi Fruit and Qi Beans despawn when the quest is over (i.e., the day after the player ships them or the quest timer ends), including growing crops, all players' inventories, chests, Preserves Jars, Kegs, and Marlon's item recovery service list.

- Given that Fishing Treasure Chests have a 48% chance to yield a stack of up to 4 Qi Beans during the quest, fishing is a reliable source of Qi Beans when combined with the Magnet bait, Pirate Profession, and a Treasure Hunter tackle.
- Putting Qi Fruit into Seed Makers and planting the resulting Qi Beans will, on average, nearly double the Qi Fruit supply. Qi Fruit produced early in the quest can be doubled several times with this method.
- Breaking any type of Geode may occasionally yield 1 or 5 Qi Beans.
- The use of Speed-Gro, Deluxe Speed-Gro, or Hyper Speed-Gro, and the Agriculturist Profession can reduce the time between harvests by 1 or 2 days.
