"A number of small scuffles broke out in the corridors, culminating in a nasty incident in which a Gryffindor fourth-year and a Slytherin sixth-year ended up in the hospital wing with leeks sprouting out of their ears."

The Leek jinx (incantation unknown) could be used in the production of leeks from the victim's ears.[1]

History Edit

In June of 1994, a series of nasty incidents in the prelude to the Gryffindor-Slytherin Quidditch match in the finale of the Inter-House Quidditch Cup ended abruptly with the use of this spell on a Gryffindor fourth year and a Slytherin sixth year; this necessitated their visitation of the hospital wing.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

It is never stated that the leeks were conjured by a spell; they could have been induced by magic or non-magically forced into the victims' ears, although the use of a jinx or hex is the most likely cause of the phenomenon.
