Herbology is the second moment of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 6, Gilderoy Lockhart.


Harry snapped the earmuffs over his ears. They shut out sound completely. Professor Sprout put a pink fluffy pair over her own ears, rolled up the sleeves of her robes, grasped one of the tufty plants firmly, and pulled hard.



Zoom levels

This moment has 2 zoom levels.

Zoom 1

  • The branch on the left of the screen grows when moused over.
  • Mouse over the Mandrake to make him scream.

Zoom 2

  • Let's start off with the earmuffs. I only marked one, because the others are pretty easy to see compared to it. You can only pick one, so choose wisely! There are the Pink ones and blue ones, pink on the top left of the table and blue on the bottom right. Then there is the green ones in a bag of compost to the left of the table. Then, there are those dastardly orange ones I marked, hanging on a pole next to a cactus.
  • On the far left side of the room, on the table, next to the blue and brown books, you'll find the protective gloves. They're in front of a green plant pot.
  • In the bag right beneath the plant with the blue flowers, you'll find Dragon Dung Compost
  • In the bag next to that one, you'll find the Small Trowel.
  • In the bag of compost in front of the left table, you'll find a bat wing.
  • You will find some Valerian Sprigs above the Pink Earmuffs.
  • The three hanging baskets will sway when moused over.
  • The plant with the blue flowers will move and rustle when moused over.


You hear the Mandrake scream when you scroll over it in Zoom 1. Otherwise, you hear rustling and the occasional cough.
