"It is a form of barley—specifically Vratixia renanicus. Originally cultivated on Thyferra, it is a key ingredient of bacta alongside alazhi and kavam."
Estala Maru[2]

Thyferra was a planet[3] located in the galaxy's Inner Rim, on the Rimma Trade Route.[1] It was the homeworld of the Vratix species.[3] The grain Vratixia renanicus, a type of barley, was originally cultivated on Thyferra.[2]

After discovering the healing properties of bacta, the Human settlers of Thyferra began to exploit the Vratix addiction. They encouraged them to produce more and more bacta, which they then sold to the general public. The Vratix eventually became a slave labor force, while the settlers made huge amounts of money.[4]

Arvel Crynyd piloted Z-95 Headhunters for a bacta cartel on the world.[6] Following the Battle of Exegol[5] in 35 ABY,[7] Thyferra was in open rebellion against the First Order.[5]
