In Hogwarts Legacy, the Herbology Class will not be the only place where you can exercise your green thumb! Luckily for us, we can also grow some plants for our potions in the Room of Requirement! The Potting Table is quickly going to become one of your favorite tools in Hogwarts Legacy, since it lets you grow useful and rare plants that you can either sell, brew into potions, or even use against dangerous creatures and Dark Wizards.
(Bonus feature: we won’t need to endure destruction to our eardrums from Mandrakes when we harvest them at the Potting Table.)
How to Access the Potting Table
Accessing your Potting Table will be quite easy! All you have to do is learn the Conjuring Spell from Professor Weasley (during The Room of Requirement quest) and head to the Room of Requirement. Once there, you will be able to place your Potting Table in whichever part of the room you desire.
To do so, you will have to select your Conjuring Spell from your Spell Slots, go to the Herbology tab, and select your desired Potting Table just like in the image shown above. A special UI interface will open up which allows you to place the Potting Table in whichever part of the Room of Requirement you want, and then let you fully customize its theme.
Personalizing Your Potting Table
After placing your Potting Table, you can further customize it to create a specific theme for your Room of Requirement. This option will come up as soon as you select a spot for your Potting Table.
As shown in the images above, you will be able to pick among different themes, and then you will be able to change the color of the Station.
So far, we have seen the following themes:
- Scientific Potting Table
- Botanical Potting Table
- Eclectic Potting Table
- Gothic Potting Table
How to Use your Potting Table
All you have to do to use your Potting Table is approach it and press either /F, depending on whether you are on Console or PC. To grow a plant, you will simply need to get seeds for the specific plant you want, place them in the Pot, and start growing it!
Keep in mind that the growth duration of your plants will differ from plant to plant!
How to Get Potting Table Blueprints (Spellcrafts)
In addition to the first Potting Table blueprint (called Spellcraft in the game) that you will be granted during your first visit to Hogsmeade, you will want to pay a visit to Tomes and Scrolls again to acquire different Potting Table Spellcrafts to be able to grow even more plants.
Potting Table recipes that we have seen so far:
- Potting Table With A Small Pot Spellcraft
- Potting Table With Three Small Pots Spellcraft
- Potting Table With Five Small Pots Spellcraft
- Potting Table With A Medium Pot Spellcraft
- Potting Table With Two Medium Pots Spellcraft
- Potting Table With Three Medium Pots Spellcraft
- Potting Table With A Large Pot Spellcraft
- Potting Table With Two Large Pots Spellcraft
How to Get Seeds for the Potting Table
Now that you actually have your Potting Table set up, you are only one step away from having your own infinite supply of plants! All you have to do is buy some seeds from The Magic Neep (basic seeds) and the Dogweed and Deathcap (rare seeds) shops in Hogsmeade.
One thing to keep in mind is that you can also use Fertilizer to increase the efficiency of your Potting Table. Fertilizer will reduce the growth duration of a plant. Typically, small plants will take 10 minutes to grow, while larger plants will take 15 minutes. You do not have to wait in the Room of Requirement for the Plants to grow.
List of All Plant Seeds
- Dittany Seed – The Magic Neep (Main Quest)
- Fluxweed Seed – The Magic Neep
- Knotgrass Seed – The Magic Neep
- Mallowsweet Seed – The Magic Neep

We discuss these plants in more detail in our dedicated Plants Guide!
Now that you know the ins and outs of the Potting Table works, we hope that you will put the skills you learned in the Herbology Class to good use! Which plant is your favorite to grow for Potions?

It only lets me put 7 tables in the room. I need 8. How do I switch out plants or get more tables? Can I build them outside the room somewhere?
Can you only have 7 potting tables or is there a way to get more tables ?
