After you defeat him, open the drawer in the room to get the Sulkk Key.

Cast Insulatle as soon as the battle starts, to protect your party from his two breath attacks.

Otherwise, just use normal attacks while healing your party until he falls down.

After this, return to the present and visit Nottagen, but you’ll find out the town is in ruins. Return to the past and head to the well on the northeastern corner of the town to find a new dungeon.

Malign Vine | Dragon Quest VII
Malign Vine
1300hp, can cast Fizzle, Dazzleflash, Sweet Breath and Venom Mist.
The Malign Vine can inflict different status effects on your party. Give the Staff of Salvation or the Salvation Stone to someone, so you can heal your party even if you’re fizzled. Also each party member should have at least one Antidotal Herb with them.Focus on the two Writing Roots first and then cast Sap twice on the Malign Vine. Their actual physical attacks don’t hit that hard, so you can keep healing your party just with items if needed.

After defeating the Malign Vine, you’ll get the third Green Fragment! 

Finding the fourth fragment

You’ll find this piece after helping Hubble in the past. You’ll find the island in the present time by sailing to the southwest of El Ciclo.
