Negations (or Absorptions)
The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.
The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

Elden Ring Miranda the Blighted Bloom Boss Guide
The Best Tips for Miranda the Blighted Bloom:
- Bring Neutralizing Boluses to cure Poison
- Use a Torch to light the Miranda on fire and interrupt most of its attacks
Be aggressive: you won't be able to avoid its poison cloud in such close quarters, so you'll need to kill it before the poison kills you. Alternate hits with a Torch to interrupt its attacks and a normal melee weapon to deal damage while it's recovering. If you deal damage quickly enough, you can largely ignore the Miranda Sprouts.
Magic and Ranged Users
Use spells that prioritize damage over casting speed: it's hard to avoid being poisoned, but the flower's attacks are mostly slow and unable to interrupt you. Inflict Fire Damage if possible—not only is the Miranda quite weak to it, it can interrupt its attacks. Just be sure to get out of the way when its Rain of Light attack starts charging up.
|Poison Cloud||The flower will slowly close its petals, before releasing a lingering cloud of pollen around it, causing rapid Poison build-up.||Hit the Miranda with Fire Damage to interrupt this attack or burn up the pollen. Otherwise, there's no way to escape the cloud in the enclosed arena.|
|A variation of the Poison Cloud attack, it will close its petals which shake slightly before unleashing a cloud of poisonous pollen in front of it, knocking its targets back and building up Poison.||Roll away once you see it close its petals, or interrupt it with Fire Damage. This attack still does low amounts of damage if it connects, however.|
|Rain of Light||The flower rises high on its stalk before making an odd sound. The area around its intended target will begin glowing white, before being peppered with beams of light from above.||Move away from the Miranda when you see it start to rise, then move back in when you see the motes. The attack's radius will be far enough away to give you space to keep attacking.|
|Head Slam||If its target is close to it, the flower will lean back and slam down on its foe, dealing mediocre damage.||Interrupt the attack with Fire Damage or roll to either side.|
