Harry Potter fans will recognize Mandrakes as magical, sentient plants that resemble human beings. The scream of a fully mature Mandrake is fatal to humans, though younger plants are still able to stun or knock out witches and wizards.

In Hogwarts Legacy, Mandrakes can be grown or purchased, before being utilized in combat to both stun and damage nearby enemies.

How to Get Mandrakes in Hogwarts Legacy

There are two ways to get Mandrakes in Hogwarts Legacy:

  1. Purchase them from the Dogweed and Deathcap shop in Hogsmeade for 500 Galleons.
  2. Buy Mandrake seeds from Dogweed and Deathcap for 800 Galleons and plant them in the Room of Requirement.

It is more convenient to buy Mandrakes as opposed to growing your own. While it will be more expensive in the long run, it’ll save you a lot of time as it takes 10 minutes for each one to grow.

After all, using this fast money trick in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll have more than enough Galleons to go around!

How to Grow Mandrakes in Hogwarts Legacy

To grow Mandrakes in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to first unlock the Room of Requirement. You won’t need to do anything to trigger this, as it occurs during the main story.

Then, conjure a Potting Table in the Room of Requirement and plant Mandrake seeds purchased from Dogweed and Deathcap. Wait 10 minutes and collect your Mandrake.

Mandrake Seeds are a little more expensive at 800 Galleons but, once bought, these seeds can be used an infinite number of times.

You can also purchase Fertilizer to help speed up the growth of your Mandrake seed. Fertilizer costs 300 Galleons at Dogweed and Deathcap.
