โ€œMy love affair with nature is so deep that I am not satisfied with being a mere onlooker, or nature tourist. I crave a more real and meaningful relationship. The spicy teas and tasty delicacies I prepare from wild ingredients are the bread and wine in which I have communion and fellowship with nature, and with the Author of that nature.โ€ ~ Euell Gibbons

Herbology and Muggle Studies are subjects offered at Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In conjunction with the Earth Day celebration in the Muggle world, we as the magical folks should not hesitate to help out by showing our passion and interest in preserving our planet.

This month, A&G's challenge requires you to create a creative, yet meaningful pot for one of the magical plants in the magical world within the Harry Potter universe. You can use some recycled items such as broken television, broken wand and unwanted/used items to complete this task. The pot should demonstrate an artistic and aesthetic feature with a magical touch from you to represent your current house.



R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ The pot should have a plant seated on it, and this plant should belong to one of the existing magical plants taken from the HP canon universe.
+ You MUST use recyclable items from both the wizarding world and Muggle world.
+ Any medium can be used.
+ The pot should adapt the colors from your House.

could it be a plant that is magical and non-magical? like a foxglove, for instance?
(the wording on this sucks, sorry. xD )

As long as the plant exists or prementioned in the HP universe, it is considered a magical property

Does it have to "look" broken in the photo? Or can it be something "not" broken? I am having issues finding pngs of broken things lol

You are given the option to use broken items in your project, but it isn't necessary. However, you must use the recyclable items

Submitted-- least I think I did. Can someone please let me know? Something odd happened when I submitted it, so I am not sure if it went through.

What do you mean by recyclable items? Like plastic, paper or aluminum?

Perhaps not plastic but others such as a broken tv that people can use that as an aquarium for fish?

Can there be several plants in the pot or is it limited to one single plant? like say you have a large pot can you fill that room with more than one of the plant?

Hi, unfortunately, the instruction said different:

So one pot with one magical plant

I am terribly sorry. There isn't anything we can do about that since it is clearly stated in the first post. To be fair to all, we can't accept a resubmission.

I have a question about the one plant thing. A hydrangea can have many flowers and such on a single plant. Would something like that count as multiple or as long as itโ€™s clearly one root system?

That would be counted a single plant as long as it is from the same root system.
