This page details how to complete Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2, so that you can learn the spell Flipendo in Hogwarts Legacy. This assignment will require you to acquire some specific plants and use them in combat.
How to Unlock Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2
You’ll receive this assignment after completing the previous Side Quest Professor Garlick’s Assignment 1 . Professor Garlick, the Herbologist, will ask you to do the following:
- Grow and harvest Fluxweed
- Acquire all three combat plants and use them simultaneously.
How to Grow Fluxweed in Hogwarts Legacy
In order to grow Fluxweed you’ll need to make a trip over to Tomes and Scrolls which located to the south of Hogsmeade, then you’ll need purchase a Potting Table With A Large Pot Spellcraft which will set you back 1000 Gold. Next up, you’ll need to take a short walk over to the Magic Neep which is also located in Hogsmeade and purchase the Fluxweed Seed for 350 Coins. If you’re strapped for gold, there’s several eye chests around Hogsmeade that you can locate using Revelio. Then to loot them you’ll need to use the Disillusionment Charm (invisibility spell) so the eye doesn’t see you coming. These chests always yield 500 gold!
Once you’ve got your hands on a large potting table and the Fluxweed Seed you’ll want to return to the Room of Requirement and place the Potting Table via the Conjuring Spell, then interact with the table and select the Fluxweed Icon to make it start growing. However, it’ll take around 15 Minutes until you can harvest it, so it’s best you continue with the other task whilst waiting.
How to Get All Three Combat Plants
Your next objective for this assignment is to use all three Combat Plants simultaneously and they are the following: Chinese Chomping Cabbage, Mandrake and the Venomous Tentacula. Here you’ll have two options, purchase the plants from Dogweed and Deathcap in Hogsmeade and purchase them for 1,400 Gold (the easier and cheaper solution) or purchase the seeds for a large total of 2,450 Gold!
After you’ve obtained all three combat plants, hold on Playstation and on Xbox to bring up the radial menu, then select one of the three plants and let go. Now tap / to use it. Quickly, do the same for the other two plants and the objective will be completed! Finally, return to the Room of Requirement and harvest the Fluxweed, then go to the Greenhouse and speak with Professor Garlick to learn the Flipendo Spell to wrap up the assignment.
