For some days ago the boot time skyrocketed, and I'm not sure why.

Viewing the log during boot time, it halts after "Started WPA supplicant" for a very long time.

I see plymouthd is using a lot of time, but don't know if that is normal, or what I can do to reduce the time it spends.

Where do I start looking to determine what is the cause of the slow boot?

Okay. After an hour of random trial and error, I figured out my installation of MongoDB was the problem!

Simply removing MongoDB brought the boot time back to normal.

Glad you sorted it out. For posterity, you can do

systemd-analyze plot > boot-graph.svg

then open the file created in your browser.
