Need to know how to obtain and grow a Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem? It’s not only an essential part of one of your early quests in the wizard game, but can also be used over and over again to make carious potions. To do so, you need to know where to get its seed, though, so you don’t spend excessive galleons buying the plant every time you need it.

There are, of course, masses of intriguing magical potions at your disposal in Hogwarts Legacy, but you need the ingredients and the recipe in order to make them first. The Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem is an essential ingredient in several potion recipes, such as Focus and Felix Felicis, and is required for completing assignments to unlock some Hogwarts Legacy spells. Here’s where to get Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed, its seeds, and how to grow and use it.

Where to find Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed

Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem and Fluxweed seeds can be purchased from The Magic Neep in Hogsmeade. Make sure you know how to get money in Hogwarts Legacy before you go shopping, as you’ll need plenty during your education. Fluxweed stems themselves cost 150 galleons for two, but you can purchase the seeds for 300 galleons. The increased price for seeds reflects the fact that you can use them to grow renewable Fluxweed stems, so once you’ve purchased the seeds once, you’re set for good.

The easiest way to acquire Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem is by growing and harvesting it yourself, so you’re better off buying seeds instead of the stem.

How to grow Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed

Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem can be grown in a large pot within the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement after completing the ‘Jackdaw’s Rest’ quest. Before you get started, make sure you’ve purchased the right potting table conjuration from Thomas Brown at Tomes and Scrolls in Hogsmeade. The Potting Table with a Large Pot will set you back 1,000 galleons, but once you have it, it’s yours to use as much as you need.

In the Room of Requirement, conjure the table and plant the Fluxweed seeds. The plant will then take 15 minutes to grow before being harvested, at which point the plant will yield five Fluxweed stems.

How to use Fluxweed

The Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem is a key ingredient for both the Focus potion and the Felix Felicis potion. The Focus Potion reduces your spell cooldowns, while the Felix Felicis Potion reveals all gear chests on the Hogwarts Legacy map for one in-game day, making them both extremely useful while exploring the expansive open-world game. The recipes for both can be purchased directly from J. Pippin’s Potions, and once you have them, you’re free to brew them as many times as you like.

You’ll also need the Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem to complete several assignments. As part of her second assignment, Professor Garlick tasks you with growing one from scratch prior to teaching you how to cast Flippendo, while Professor Sharp’s first assignment involves successfully brewing a Focus Potion before you can learn Depulso. You’ll only need one Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem per assignment, so you don’t need to worry about stockpiling it ahead of time.

So head to Hogsmeade and gather up your ingredients, including Hogwarts Legacy Fluxweed stem, and you’ll soon have every potion ready to go. These magical elixirs will be crucial to completing the many Hogwarts Legacy challenges you’ll undertake during your time at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The creator of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. Warner Bros. has the licence to make games based on Harry Potter. While the details of that deal aren’t publicly known, and WB Games says “J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is likely that, as the creator and owner of the Harry Potter IP, she will earn royalties from its sales.
