A baby Mandrake

A Mandrake is a plant with healing properties. It is used in the restorative draught used to bring petrified students back to their un-petrified state in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

From the Story

"The Mandrake is a plant that, when fully grown, can be made into a stew to cure Petrified victims. It grows from a seedling (which looks like a muddy baby with green, mottled skin) to a fully mature plant. The cry of a mature Mandrake is fatal to anyone who hears it."
