What is left to add to this? --Siruisblack18 15:40, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

"must be drunk once per day in the week leading up to the full moon." Where is this from? I don't remember it from the books nor from the movies and I can't find Rowling herself saying it anywhere. Has someone just made an assumption and claimed it as canon? --:::: (Talk) March 17, 2011

Question: in 1993 the October full moon fell on the 30th not the 31st. That would mean the conversation that HP had with RJL, during which SS brings the wolfsbane potion, would have occured one day after the full moon. C.f. "Flight of the Fat Lady" in PoA.

Is this a mistake, or a misunderstanding of the way the wolfsbane potion works?

Sounds like a mistake to me-- it certainly wouldn't be the only instance of a mistaken date within the series. ProfessorTofty 05:15, November 5, 2011 (UTC)


Would I be wrong in guessing that the potion's primary ingredient is Aconitum aka wolfsbane? If so, I wonder what the other ingredients are.User:Per Ankh ED 08:34, July 14, 2013 (UTC)
