'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' Greenhouse Guide - On Seeds, Water, Growing Community Resources and More

If you've just started playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, chances are you've run into a building called a Greenhouse. Greenhouses serve several purposes in the game, but their use isn't immediately apparent. If you're curious about any aspects of Wizards Unite's greenhouses, we've put together a complete guide to the structures including tips for growing ingredients, brewing potions, finding seeds and water and more.

What are Greenhouses? How do you find them?

If you look on your Wizards Unite map, you may see a blue, glass building. This is a greenhouse. Greenhouses, Inns and Fortresses are the three building types you'll find in Wizards Unite and each serves a specific purpose. While greenhouses can be a great way to grab some extra spell energy and ingredients, it's also a great place for community members to work together to grow valuable potion ingredients. Potions are used for everything from healing to increasing the effectiveness of your spells so they are a resource you'll find quite useful as you progress through the game. If you are having trouble finding a greenhouse in your neighborhood, the best bet is to go to areas where people often gather. Parks, Libraries, Historical sites and other points of interest are great places to find greenhouses. You'll usually find Fortresses and Inns nearby as well.

Greenhouses provide free resources you can gather every five minutes Niantic

Greenhouses serve two different purposes. They provide quick resources and also a place to grow community resources as well. To gather free resources, players need to enter a nearby greenhouse. When they enter, they'll encounter three potted plants floating in the air. Tap on the leaves of one of the potted plants and swipe up to "pick" it. This action will cause the rewards to release. Your rewards will often be a combination of spell energy and potion ingredients.

How to Grow Ingredients in Greenhouses

The other use for greenhouses is top grow additional spell ingredients. Here's how to do it:

  1. Enter a Greenhouse
  2. Tap on the "Growing" tab at the bottom of the screen. A pot will appear in front of you. Tap on the "Grow" button to go to the growing menu.
  3. Choose a plant you have the resources to grow. You will know if you have the right resources when the "Grow" button is green. Greyed-out grow buttons mean you don't have all the resources you need.
  4. Once you've selected the item you want to grow, a timer will begin. Once the timer comes to an end, this will mean your plant is ready to harvest.

IMPORTANT: Once a plant is fully grown, you will have 30 minutes to collect the resource before it disappears, so be sure to pay attention to when the plant is ready to harvest, so you don't miss out!

How to Use Spells and Harvest with Friends

As we mentioned, plants grown in a greenhouse can be community resources, meaning anyone can come and gather the harvest when it's ready. Players will get the same yield whether there is one person or 20 gathering the harvest. To increase the harvest yield, players can cast a Herbivicus Spell on the plant. Anyone is allowed to cast the spell and it will increase the yield for all players. This is a great way for an active community to work together to increase their resources quickly.

How to Find and Use Seeds and Water

As you will have noticed, to plant something in the Greenhouse requires having a specific number of seeds and water. If there is a particular resource you want to grow, we've provided a list of the seeds and water needed to produce these items. Seeds and water are one of the many resources found on the map. Seeds will look like rectangular packages on the ground and water will look like a watering can icon. Tap on these items on your map to collect them.
