Where to find or buy Fluxweed Stem in Hogwarts Legacy

There are two main ways that students can get their hands on Fluxweed Stem in Hogwarts Legacy. The first—and easier way—to obtain this ingredient is by simply purchasing it at The Magic Neep store in Hogsmeade.

Players can find The Magic Neep on the west side of Hogsmead past J. Pippin’s Potions. Here, students can purchase Fluxweed Stems for 150 Galleons, along with a few other helpful items.

The other way to obtain Fluxweed Stem is by growing it yourself. To grow the resource, students must first unlock the Room of Requirement. After doing so, they will have to conjure a Potting Table with a Large Pot.

Fluxweed Stem can only be grown in Large Pots, so players will have to purchase the conjuration recipe from Tomes in Scrolls in Hogsmeade first. Once conjured, players can grow the ingredient in 15 minutes.

What does Fluxweed Stem do?

Now that you’ve grown Fluxweed Stem, there are two Potions you can brew that can help immensely in combat and while exploring the game’s open world.

First, there’s the Focus Potion, which reduces the drinker’s spell cooldown. This is arguably one of the most helpful potions in the game, especially if players are using the Unforgivable Curses in their playthrough.

Fluxweed Stem is necessary for a handful of different quest assignments, such as brewing a Focus Potion for Professor Sharp.

Fluxweed Stem is also used in the Felix Felicis Potion. Felix Felicis reveals the locations of large loot chests in the open world for one in-game day, making it easier to find stronger, rare gear and plenty of Galleons.

Players will need Fluxweed for two Professor assignments later in the game. Professor Sharp’s Assignment 1 tasks players with brewing a Focus Potion, while Professor Garlick’s Assignment 2 asks players to grow Fluxweed Stem for themselves. Completing these quests will give the spells Depulso and Flippendo, respectively.
