How to Get Mandrake and Mandrake Seeds in Hogwarts Legacy

Mandrake is a magic plant that you can use for combat in Hogwarts Legacy. You can either grow Mandrakes in your Herbology classroom or at the Room of Requirement or purchase them from Dogweed and Deathcap shop. To grow Mandrakes, you must complete a Curricular Herbology Assignment from your Herbology Class. Once you have completed the assignment, you will receive a Magical Plant item which you can use to grow the Mandrakes. 

There is also a quest where you can get Mandrakes as part of your legacy guide. To get the Mandrake, you must battle in the Room of Requirement and complete certain requirements, such as defeating enemies or finding items. The reward for this quest is a type of plant item that will allow you to grow your own Mandrake in the Herbology Classroom.

In this guide, we will share details on how to get Mandrake and its seed in Hogwarts Legacy.

What is Mandrake in Hogwarts Legacy?


Mandrake is one of many magical plants in Hogwarts Legacy that also exist in real life. It is very useful during combat. You can use it as a defense as it screams when pulled off the ground, disarming the enemy in the game. You can also use it in the game as an ingredient for making potions.

You can get Mandrake Seed by purchasing them from the Dogweed and Deathcap shop in Hogsmeade. The Mandrake Seed is somewhat expensive, as it will cost you 800 Galleons, but if you don’t have that much time to grow the seed, you can even purchase the Mandrake from the same Dogweed and Deathcap shop for 500 Galleons. You will get 2x Mandrake for the 500 Galleons.

Once you are at the Dogweed and Deathcap shop in Hogsmeade, interact with the shopkeeper, Madame Beatrice Green, to purchase the Mandrake or Mandrake Seed. She will show you the list of available items in that shop. Here are all the available items and their sell prices:

    • Chinese Chomping Cabbage Seed: 600 Galleons
    • Mandrake Seed: 800 Galleons
    • Venomous Tentacula Seed: 1,050 Galleons
    • 2x Fertiliser: 300 Galleons
    • 2x Chinese Chomping Cabbage: 300 Galleons
    • 2x Mandrake: 500 Galleons
    • 2x Venomous Tentacular: 600 Galleons

Choose Mandrake Seed from the list and purchase it with 800 Galleons. Once purchased, go to the potting table in the Room of Requirement or herbology classroom. Mandrake Seed takes around ten real-time minutes to grow. After that, you can harvest the plant and use it as a defense in combat or for completing quests.

If you don’t have that many coins to buy this magical plant, here are some ways through which you can earn Galleons (in-game currency) in Hogwarts Legacy:

  1. Selling unwanted gear is one of the best ways to earn Galleon in the game.
  2. You can earn Galleon by looting the chests located in rooms and other locations.
  3. You can also make money by selling beasts in the open market
  4. Open every Eyeball Chest, as each eyeball chest contains 500 Galleons. 
  5. And last but not the least, complete the quests to make a decent amount of Galleons in Hogwarts Legacy.

That concludes our guide on how to get Mandrake and Mandrake Seeds in Hogwarts Legacy.
