Hogwarts Legacy venomous tentacula plants are useful weapons but also vital to complete Professor Garlick's First Assignment. You can purchase plants or seeds from Dogweed and Deathcap, the herbology shop outside Hogsmeade, and, as long as you have a large pot, you can grow a steady supply handy. However, if you're just looking to grab a few without the gardening there is one other option you'll find closer to home.

There are a few assignments and ingredients that can be troublesome, like where to find Hogwarts Legacy troll bogeys or Hogwarts Legacy Mandrake locations, and we can help you out there too. But for now, here's how to grow or buy Venomous Tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy.

You'll need to find venomous tentacula in Hogwarts Legacy for Professor Garlick's Assignment, which sees you needing to use them on an enemy, as well as using a Mandrake on multiple enemies at once. If you want to use them a lot going forwards then there is a shop in Hogsmeade that sells the plants and seeds. 

However, if you just want to tick this one objective off then there is another option. Depending on how much time has passed, the greenhouse furthest from the Greenhouse floo flame in Hogwarts is full of venomous tentacula you can just take, and that eventually grow back after being picked. I can't be sure exactly when they appear in relation to getting the initial assignment but these are the plants I used to complete it.

To find them head to the greenhouse furthest away from the floo flame you use to get there, and then go into the door on the right. Down the stairs you'll see six regrowing pants you can pick repeatedly.

You can buy venomous tentacula plants and seeds from Dogweed and Deathcap in Hogwarts Legacy. The shop is up the northern end of Hogsmeade:

The plants, like the ones you can find in the greenhouse, are ready-grown, but the seeds will require access to the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement and a Hogwarts Legacy large pot to grow them in. If you don't have any large pots, you'll need to buy the requisite spellcraft from Tombs and Scrolls to get them. However, given the six you can keep picking in the Hogwarts greenhouse you might want to just use those and save the space in the Room of Requirement.

The release of Hogwarts Legacy has been the subject of criticism and debate due to J.K. Rowling's public stance on gender identity, which continues to challenge the inclusivity at the heart of the Harry Potter community. Here is our explainer on the Hogwarts Legacy controversy.
