Four Houses Of Hogwarts Characteristics

There is nothing ordinary about the world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is a place where a three-headed dog guards a chamber of secrets, where a friendly ogre named Hagrid protects the young wizards in training, where broomsticks fly, and owls deliver the mail. Who wouldn’t want to live in such a magical universe? Many close readers of the hugely popular Harry Potter series have also noticed that the plants depicted in the books do not escape JK Rowling’s (the creator of the Harry Potter series) watchful and detail-oriented eye. Indeed, no small detail seems to escape Rowling’s watchful eye. She seems to have planned every detail of her novels, and this much of what makes this so absorbing: she has created a whole other universe that seems real yet fantastical all at once. Here is a brief look at the plants that are highlighted in the Harry Potter books. These plants certainly constitute no ordinary horticulture.

At the fabulously magical Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, all the young wizards in training must take an herbology class named Magical and Mundane plants that allows students to learn the difference and be able to differentiate between plants that are mundane and those that are magical. Most of the magical plants have been entirely made up by Rowling herself, while many of the mundane plants are actually part of our own non-muggle world. Here is a brief sampling of some of the plants that are highlighted throughout the Harry Potter books series.

Abyssinian shrivelfig: Students learn how to prune and work with these plants. However, only second year herbology students are allowed to work with Abyssinian shrivelfig trees. When the shrivelfigs are peeled, they can be used as an active ingredient in the shrinking solution.

Alihotsy: According to Rowling, eating the leaves of this plant will cause hysteria in whoever ingests them.

Bouncing Bulb: This plant caused quite a fuss in one particularly eventful herbology class. The bulb was repotted during one herbology class. But then it accidentally wriggled free from Harry’s own hand, and then banged him across the face.

Bubotuber: What is this strange sounding thing? The bubotuber is said to look almost exactly like a giant, thick black slug. This strange plant is even known to squirm slightly when held. Although strangely enough, once the bubotuber has been planted, it will stick out vertically and straight as an arrow. Professor Sprout taught the fourth year students how to work with the pus from the bubotuber. The pus from this strange plant is known to react strangely with human skin. If it remains undiluted, it is well known that it will cause painful, oversized boils to rise from the skin. However, when it processed carefully and correctly, it can be diluted properly to create a wonderful cure for acne.

Devil's Snare: This strange plant is well known because it is made of soft and springy vines and tendrils. The plant itself seems to possess some sense of touch. The plant does exactly what its name invokes: it is known to snare anyone who dares touch it. The Devil’s Snare plant will lace around the arms and legs of its capture and eventually choke them to death. Like quicksand, the more a person attempts to resist its embrace, the harder the plant will choke. However, if the person manages to relax, the Devil’s Snare plant will work slowly, allowing more time for rescue or possible escape. According to Rowling’s, the Devil’s Snare plant grows best in the darkest and dampest of all environments. It does not like fire. The best thing to do when caught in its grip is to use flames to drive it away, or use a flame spell against it.
