You can start upgrading potions in Haven with Adan, and once you progress the story, in Skyhold, in the crypt next to your throne.

Upgrading potions requires a lot of ingredients, so it's advisable to collect all plants you see. Also, each region has it's own set of reagents (though some common plants like elf root of blood lotus seem to grow almost everywhere). Hence, whenever you have enough power available, open a region, and do a sting hunt for some reagents. Once in Skyhold, you can also get access to 'retrieve resources' missions at the war table. Send either Leliana or Josephine to bring some reagents (usually around 6), but never Cullen, as he seems to focus on metals. Also in Skyhold, once you have access to your garden, every time you harvest a plant in the wild, there's a chance you get seeds to plant in the garden. Finally, you can also purchase over-priced reagents from some vendors, which I don't recommend.

You can find the ultra-rare plant Prophet's Laurel on the Storm Coast, in a cave in the most south-east corner of the map. That cave also holds a rift. Every time you enter the map two plants spawn in that cave.

The following list is not complete, but there are more than enough to get you the achievement. I'll update the list if I find any of the remaining recipes. I'm not typing out all reagent requirements as you can easily look them up in the game by approaching the potion upgrade bench.

Lyrium Potion 4 upgrades
