"It was a relief to get out into the greenhouses; they were dealing with more dangerous plants than ever in Herbology but at least they were still allowed to swear loudly if the Venomous Tentacula seized them unexpectedly from behind."
Harry Potter's opinion on Sixth year Herbology lessons[src]

The Venomous Tentacula is a green, spiky, toothsome plant with mobile vines that try to grab living prey. Venomous Tentacula expels venom from its shoots, and its spikes are deadly. Its bite is highly poisonous and can prove fatal.

DescriptionEdit

Halfblood-03079

A typical species of Venomous Tentacula

This dangerous plant is used for student research in Herbology classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Students are permitted to swear loudly if a Tentacula tries to strangle them during lessons. The Severing Charm can be used to both stun the creature and sever its arms.

The Venomous Tentacula is a giant eyeless head with fangs, though the shape of its mouth tends to vary, along with many leaves surrounding it. It also has many large vines for appendage (that act like arms and as aforementioned can be severed by Diffindo), which may or may not also have separate heads of their own at the ends.

Occasionally, aside from biting, some forms of the plant can also fire spiky spore-like balls from their mouths at their targets.

Venomous Tentacula eat Chizpurfles, spitting out their carapaces once they have.[1]

Notable usesEdit

Venomous Tentacula 1

Venomous Tentacula seeds are a Class C non-tradeable substance. Fred and George Weasley purchased Tentacula seeds off Mundungus Fletcher in 1995 for their Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes products. Tentacula seeds emit a faint rattling noise even if they are completely stationary.

During the Battle of Hogwarts, Neville Longbottom and Pomona Sprout used Venomous Tentaculas as a weapon against the invading Death Eaters.
