Part 2:

Create a potion which can be used in the magical world which needs parts of the cactus. Think about all the different parts and their uses in the natural world and explain why you have chosen to use them in this potion and thier effects.

The cactus could be used in potions that are used to help dehydrate the drinker because cactus are good at storing water so it could also help the drinker to store some water too. It could also be used in a defensive spell that could cover the drinker with spines and protect him from others that might try to hurt him

Part 3:

Post a picture of a cactus and write a short sentance describing what you see

Didn’t know how to post a picture so ill just give you the site I found it on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cactus
It looks kind of redish and it has a lot of spines that it probably uses for protection. It looks like its in a group with four or five other plants. It is also surrounded by other types of plants too

The Cactus




Part 2:

Create a potion which can be used in the magical world which needs parts of the cactus. Think about all the different parts and their uses in the natural world and explain why you have chosen to use them in this potion and thier effects.

Itchy Potion
Ingredients:

4 cactus spines
2 beetle eyes
small bunch of knotgrass
1 pint butterbeer

Bring the butterbeer to a slow boil in your cauldron. Add the knotgrass and stir clockwise 10 times. Add the 2 cactus spines and stir clockwise 2 times. Then add in the last 2 cactus spins and stir counter clockwise 2 times. Then add the beetle eyes and remove from the heat. Stir counterclockwise 5 times and pour into container.

When a teaspoon of this potion is added to an unsuspecting person's butterbeer, they will suddenly get itchy. Effects will last approximately one hour.

I have made this potion because i think the spines would be itchy if they touched you or were mixed into something and you drank it. Instead of being itchy in one body part, you would become itchy all over your body



Part 3:

Post a picture of a cactus and write a short sentance describing what you see


I see a cactus stem with lots of little spines with a big pink flower growing beside it

Part 2:

Create a potion that can be used in the magical world which needs parts of the cactus. Think about all the different parts and their uses in the natural world and explain why you have chosen to use them in this potion and their effects.

The Fluvian Solution is a relatively recent invention (having first been brewed in 1893 by Ulrich the Unbalanced, as part of his quest to submerge the world underwater and develop his race of Aquamen in a bid for global domination). It comprises of several ingredients, including fluxweed, boa feathers and chispurfle carapaces, however the key ingredients come from the species Magicereus Mamillaria – the magical variant of the Muggle cactus. Its amazing properties of water retention are amplified by the magical areolic structure, and when its spines are ejected in a natural defence mechanism, the area is almost instantly flooded with water as they explode.

The key to the potion lies in stripping the bark of the cactus from its stems, and using a pestle and mortar to grind the areoles into a thick paste, which is then combined with Mandragora roots to create an explosive and violent mix. Following the rest of the brewing instructions – the potion will eventually form a thick, but brittle outer skin much like the membrane of the Magicereus Mamillaria. Upon rupture, oxygen will act as a catalyst for the solution inside – creating a chemical reaction involving massive amounts of carbon dioxide and hydrogen that will result in a deluge of water being released.


Part 3:

Post a picture of a cactus and write a short sentence describing what you see



This image shows a cactus of the subgena Stenocereus Thurberi, with a bird eating the ripe and exposed seed pods (the dark red extrusions) - no small feat, since the pods themselves are heavily armoured.

Part 2:

Create a potion which can be used in the magical world which needs parts of the cactus. Think about all the different parts and their uses in the natural world and explain why you have chosen to use them in this potion and thier effects.

Pricklyfingers Potion

Main Ingredients--Dragon liver, mandrake root and cacti spines. A few tips:
Make sure the spines are all undamaged. A potion containing broken spines will usually explode when placed over the fire. The liver should be finely blended, not chopped. Chopped liver has been said to cause indigestion for up to three days.

This potion is to reverse the effect of a limb 'falling asleep.' Often when a limb stays in one position for too long it will begin prickling, and might lose all sensation. This is a normal occurrence and usually goes back to normal on its own. However, if the wizard/witch in question was anywhere near a Kneazle while their limb was 'falling asleep' an odd reaction occurs and the limb will not stop prickling without the proper remedy.

The Pricklyfingers Potion contains cacti spines, which often have the same effect like a limb 'falling asleep' -- that burning, stinging sensation. However, when properly combined with mashed mandrake root, the effect of the cacti spines is reversed.

If using cockroach eyes, make sure they are of the flying variety. And only brown ones. Never black.

Part 3:

Post a picture of a cactus and write a short sentance describing what you see

The Cactus



Part 2:

Create a potion which can be used in the magical world which needs parts of the cactus. Think about all the different parts and their uses in the natural world and explain why you have chosen to use them in this potion and thier effects.

Cactus Stem Poison

6 ounces aconite
3 ounces belladonna
2 ounces Hellebore
1 ounce Saguaro cactus needles

Measure out all ingredients and mash the aconite and hellebore together. Raise your cauldron to a boil and add the belladonna and cactus needles whole. When concoction begins to smell foul, add the aconite/hellebore mixture. Store in a dark cabinet for 12 days to allow it to age. The poison will incapacitate anyone with just a sip, and kill if a whole bottle is drank.

I chose to use cactus needles because the Saguaro cactus needles are poisonous and would aid in the potion’s purpose-that is, to poison someone. Also, the sharp barbs of the needle would cause significant harm to the throat and scratch the victim on the way down.

Part 3:

Post a picture of a cactus and write a short sentance describing what you see


Here we can see a quite lovely sample of a barrel cactus. If you look closely you’ll notice how the cactus appears to be leaning slightly. It is, in fact, leaning towards the south, something all barrel cactuses do.
