Effect

Leeks sprout from ears[1]

"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."
—Description[src]

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

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 scenes

  • 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.
