Professor Garlick Assignment 2- Magical Flora in Hogwarts


Professor Garlick, the Herbology professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is no stranger to challenging her students. In her second assignment, you’ll delve deeper into the fascinating world of magical plants, encountering growth and cultivation and the unique properties of combat-oriented flora.

This guide will equip you with all the knowledge you need to conquer Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2 and unlock exciting rewards.

The Quest Breakdown: A Two-Part Challenge

Professor Garlick presents you with a twofold task:

  1. Grow and Harvest Fluxweed: This seemingly simple task introduces you to the fundamentals of plant cultivation within the Room of Requirement. Fluxweed is a common magical ingredient used in various potions, and successfully growing it demonstrates your understanding of basic Herbology principles.
  2. Field Testing Combat Plants: The true test lies in utilizing three specific aggressive plants simultaneously:
    • Chinese Chomping Cabbage: This leafy menace lunges and chomps down on any unsuspecting creature nearby.
    • Mandrake: Renowned for its ear-splitting scream that can knock out opponents, the Mandrake is a potent (and potentially hazardous) weapon.
    • Venomous Tentacula: This tentacled terror lashes out at anyone who dares come close, inflicting poison damage.

Professor Garlick wants you to witness the combined effects of these ferocious flora.

Conquering the Steps: A Detailed Walkthrough

Part 1: Cultivating Fluxweed

  1. Gathering the Essentials: You’ll need a Potting Table and Fluxweed Seeds.
    • Potting Table: Head to Hogsmeade, the charming village outside Hogwarts. Visit Tomes and Scrolls, a shop specializing in magical supplies. Here, you can purchase a Potting Table with a large pot spellcraft for 1000 Galleons.
    • Fluxweed Seeds: Still in Hogsmeade, visit The Magic Neep, a reputable Herbology shop. You’ll find Fluxweed Seeds readily available for purchase.
  2. Planting and Growth:
    • Room of Requirement: Make your way to the Room of Requirement, a customizable space that serves as your own personal headquarters at Hogwarts.
    • Placing the Potting Table: Use the conjuring spell to place the Potting Table in a suitable location within the Room.
    • Planting the Seed: Interact with the Potting Table and choose the option to plant. Select the Fluxweed Seed from your inventory and confirm the action.
    • Growth Time: The Fluxweed will take approximately 15 minutes to fully mature in real-time. You can use this time to explore Hogwarts or complete other tasks.

Part 2: Unleashing the Combat Trio

  1. Acquiring the Combat Plants:
    • Similar to acquiring Fluxweed Seeds, you can purchase the Chinese Chomping Cabbage, Mandrake, and Venomous Tentacula from The Magic Neep in Hogsmeade.
  2. The Field Test:
    • There’s no designated location for this test. You can head outside Hogwarts to a safe, open area.
    • Simultaneous Use: The key to this part lies in using all three combat plants at the same time. Simply equip each plant from your inventory and throw them onto the ground in quick succession. Witness the chaos and mayhem as these aggressive plants unleash their fury!
  3. Reporting Back: Once you’ve successfully used the three plants simultaneously, return to Professor Garlick in the Herbology greenhouse.
