Default Herbology Lesson 1 - Night Blooms

The cold, winter breeze may leave a chill running up your spine as you make your way to the greenhouses. It might also not help that it is not the sun, but actually the moon shining down upon you as you leave the cosy castle for the grounds tonight.

Examining the sky for any hint of uninvited snow -- June Flamsteed, is all smiles, and bundled up in layers - as she hopes you are too, and is waiting to you right outside.

Hurry up now, class will begin soon.


OOC: HELLO! And welcome back to Herbology. Hope you have read the rules, if not - please do so before posting. Class will begin soon <3

Class Progress:
Greetings + Question 1

Maya stuck her gloved hands into her pocket, holding the handwarmers that had been resting in her pocket. Ah... warmth. She smiled at her siblings and Claudine as they entered. Right as the professor asked her first question, Maya was tempted to pinch her cheeks to feel a little more warmth there too. She mentally debated placing the handwarmers there but didn't want to look absolutely ridiculous so kept them in her pockets.

"Some plants are very sensitive to light so that's why they bloom at night... anything too harsh and it could cause them to wilt," Maya offered. "There's also Devil's Snare which isn't a flower... but they're not fond of bright light either and rather dangerous."

And just like that, Jordyn had gotten off on the wrong foot. With a sigh, she donned her missing layers and tried to become invisible. The Hufflepuff was feeling just a little bit of pressure to do well in this class. Herbology wasn’t exactly her thing, but when you have a parent in the field, you kind of don’t want to embarrass them with poor grades.

Before Jordyn had time to dwell on that thought any longer, class began. The professor wasted no time asking the first question. Raising her hand, she gave the first fun fact she could think of. ”Flowers that bloom at night often have a sweet smell and I think that is to attract insects that will pollinate them.”. Yes? Right? Hopefully her answer wasn’t mistake number two of the night..

Valentina raised her eyebrows, feeling slightly surprised. "Yes, Professor. Sleepy too." She responded with a little smile. Had it been really that obvious?? But hopefully, class would be done soon. Ish.

"Flowers that bloom at night smell way more nice than the ones that bloom during the day.. right??"

She noted the small smile Daniel offered her and she returned one to him. See? Daniel and her WERE friends. There was no doubt in her mind. Her smile grew larger when Serena stopped by but faulted at the interaction between Serena and Daniel. Well… well… Her eyes flicked back and forth between Daniel and Serena. “It’s a nickname… Uh… He introduced himself to V as Batman when they first met…” she explained quietly before biting her lip once more. Lisa was sad that most of her friends preferred V to Daniel because Daniel really wasn’t as bad as everyone thought. Both of them had their pros and cons. V was a friend-rival half the time… Lisa unfortunately always found a reason to compete with her unlike Daniel who was just… Daniel.

She didn’t realize she was holding her breath until after class started. “Most night flowers are pale in colour like the Moon one that Claudine mentioned… Also! There are some flowers that only bloom on certain nights too,” she explained. Like the one in the Muggle film based in Singapore about super wealthy people…. She had even looked up the movie afterwards to fact check and it was… surprisingly a thing.

Night flowers were cool and all, but it was something that Maya, Evan's sister, said that caught Kinsay's attention instead. Without thinking much of it, her hand shot straight into the air. "Is it so angry because it's called the Devil's Snare OR is it called the Devil's Snare because it's so angry?"

Makes you think, doesn't it?

Anyway. What was Professor F's original question again? Kins was busy thinking about the danger plant.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Dos Santos? "Whatever" Daniel looked away from Serena after she had corrected him. He then listened as Lisa began to explain why he had the Batman nickname and he wondered why she had even bothered.

Had the Slytherin said those words out loud, Daniel would have hexed her without a second hesitation. But lucky for her, the Hufflepuff could not read minds and was clueless. He didn't even acknowledge her 'Half Batman' comment because it was at this time that the Professor had moved to stand in the middle of the room.

"They have a lighter colour scheme so that they can better attract moths" he answered.

Heath nearly burst into a fit of laughter at Claudine’s teasing, but he stifled it just in time by pretending to cough. “Who’s to say I won’t?” he teased back. Before he could say more, the lesson began, and he turned his attention to Professor Flamsteed. So, night blooming plants… he supposed he should've seen that coming, and in a way he did. His guess about nocturnal plants wasn’t too far off!

As he considered the question, his gaze randomly wandered to the sky, and a thought occurred to him. He vaguely recalled reading about a night-blooming flower with “star” in the name somewhere. What was that flower called again? His hand went up, and he said, “There’s a night-blooming plant called the Ten-petal Blazing Star. It has white flowers that open in the evening and close in the morning.”

So Bella had been right on the topic of the lesson, without even guessing. That was a little cool she had to admit to herself. Raising her hand to answer Prof Junes question she said. "There is the datura or more commonly known as the devil's trumpet. It's a highly poisonous flower, but still a very beautiful plant with trumpet shaped blossoms that bloom at night and it comes in shades of pink, purple, yellow and white. It's a beautiful addition to any garden but you should keep your pet's away from it." To be poisoned by a garden plant wasn't something that Bella wished upon anyone.

Wow....that Mr. Flamsteed sent a worse chill up and down his spine than the chilly night breeze - and not just because he had ties two scarves together to make a super scarf. As for his brother...well....he had TRIED to wake him up but no dice. The last time that had happened had been when Atlas had practiced his Aguamenti on Aries and, well, the bed had been soggy and the water had splashed over to his own bed and it had just been a mess. He was pretty sure Apollo had not noticed the puddle near his bed that had also crept towards his trunk either so....anyway...

Trying not to destroy anymore school property here. Atlas truly was doing the school a service with his restraint.

But he also really did not want to just throw Aries under the Knight Bus either so...time for some quick thinking.

"He wasn't feeling well, professor...so he stayed behind with some tea and was going to see the healer," he explained while giving juuuuuuuuust enough details to make it believable. He had plenty of prank objects in his trunk that they could use to fake an illness too so...he would be shoving those down Aries' throat once he returned to the dorms. "I'm the better note taker and have the superior memory between the pair of us anyway so I'll lend him my notes later."

Tugging on his scarf a bit and rocking back on his heels. He really wanted to tune out and just fiddle with device in his pocket...but now he had to cover for Aries and actually participate. He brother wasn't even HERE and his plans were being ruined. Temporarily, at least. "Many are tied to the phase of the moon, like the Norandola whose pollen can really only be used when harvested in the evening of a full moon...and the one she mentioned..." Ah yes, his signature pointing towards Claudine. "...only bloom during a full moon ...and there is a thing called moon gardening where the gravitational pull of the moon is said to impact moisture in the soil and leaf movements and stuff. Which isn't really specific to night since the moon is a constant part of the sky, day or night, but still feels relevant."

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Wow. Ash had so many friends today! "Like everyone said, night-blooming flowers often smell nice. But they're also really pretty sometimes. Like water lilies. They're pink and white, and they can bloom during the day OR during the night." Of course Ash was talking about how pretty night-blooming flowers were. She was an artist. She likes pretty flowers just as much as anyone else. And she thought that talking about how pretty flowers were was perfectly acceptable for this class. They did talk about what plants looked like and how to identify them, after all

I thought you might get distracted by the evening sky,’’ Claudine teased. But the boyfriend had made it in time for the lesson so that didn't seemed to have happened.

Time to get started. The Snakette trusted that it was indeed going to be a good lesson. She tugged the Ravenclaw scarf closer about her neck and shoulders. So. Flowers which bloom at nights. That would explain the timing of this current lesson.

Claudine raised a hand after racking her brain for what she knew on the topic. “There’s one called the Moonflower. Though they open late in the afternoon, they can open earlier if there’s cloudy weather around.” Had she gotten that right? Claudine thought so. In any case, it made sense that the moonflower be tricked into thinking it was evening if there was inclement weather around.
June wasn't surprised when Claudine spoke up, she was always one of the firsts to do so. "Mhm. Right you are, Miss Blaze. Moonflowers are a great example for night blooms."

Another brilliant answer. "Correct, Miss Blackthorne"

He raised his hand and waited to be called on in order to offer anything. "Most people assume night blooming flowers hate light, so people will try to recreate their growth in dark dungeons or corners. But truthfully the nocturnal plants just find sunlight too harsh and like the softer hues of the moon. So while you can grow nocturnal plants in darkened greenhouses or somewhere else, they will not grow successfully unless given some form of a softer light." Magic was the easiest way to recreate this, but he didn't know the exact spells that would be needed for that.
This answer though - brought about a smile on her face. And it was definitely more of what she was looking for, "Excellent observation, Mr Nam"

”I think the flowers bloom at night so they attract the right audience, too. You know, like the right bugs they need for pollination.” At least that’s what she’d read. She was trying to do Cappi proud with all this Herbology stuff, had she mentioned that?

The smile of hers only grew further as the seventh year chimed in, which June appreciated with a nod - "Right you are, Miss Summers." Honestly why was there a need for June to teach them when they had such a great know-how already?

Ahhh. This was now finally getting interesting.

"An excellent point, Miss Nam." And this one was from her own house - so yes, very very good indeed.

Wrong foot? What wrong foot?

June was all smiles as the hufflepuff gave her answer, which was similar to what Valentina offered too. "Right you both are, Miss Guldry, Miss Nichols"

Ding ding ding.

June practically beamed - more from excitement than anything else.

"Correct, Miss Nam" This one from the Nam clan was slowly becoming one of June's favourites. Did she know? If not, she'd make it obvious eventually.

As expected, Kinsay James went the other direction.

"the latter I believe" she simply replied before moving on.

Why was it so hard to believe Atlas? Mostly because she knew she knew them both better than this. Yet -- she simply gave him a nod, featuring a small look that very well meant - they needed to talk after class.

And SHE HATED doing this because look at how perfect his answer was, even if he was terrible at herbology -- just look.

Keeping her feelings aside, she nodded, "Right you are, Mr Flamsteed. Take a point"

It was absolutely satisfying how informative everyone had been so far. It felt like a good warm up -- despite the cold around them. So, when no one else's hand was up in the air anymore, June decided to move forward.

"Almost all of you made excellent points. And let me just say - I am impressed as ever." June smiled. "There are a variety of flowers which only bloom at night. Their bloom is dependent on moon phases, light sensitivity, temperature, soil and more."

"Keeping that in mind - I want you to look at these" she said, gesturing over to a table with three pots - each with a flower which had not bloomed. "Moonflower, Night Blooming Jasmine, Tuberose"

"Can you tell me what is common between them all? And what might any of these flowers need to bloom perfectly tonight?"


OOC: Thaaaank you for being here still. Second question up! Will move the class sometime now tomorrow. <3

Ash pulled out her sketchbook to draw the flowers. "None of them can handle temperatures that are really cold... like 20 degrees Fahrenheit? I'm think one of those is a tropical plant? So I guess we'd need to make sure they all stay warm enough, since it's cold right now." maybe put them inside of a greenhouse? Then why were they standing outside of the greenhouse? Ash would like to go into the greenhouse. There would be more pretty flowers in there to draw, yes? Ash thought Brandon would like drawings of pretty flowers.

Claudine was pleased. She didn’t know much about moonflowers but the bit of information she’d volunteered seemed good enough. With the other facts listed and confirmed by Flamsteed, it all just gave her more knowledge about the group of plants they were studying that evening. Anyway. She trained her eyes on each of the three pots. Interesting plants there, professor.

Up went her hand again. “Um… they bloom mainly during the spring time.” Of this Claudine was not sure but she remembered reading something along that line for her exams. “They may need clear skies, or rather, the moon to show up clearly tonight”

"They're all somewhat toxic," added Violet when it was her turn. She could think of a few other similarities, but that was the one that interested her most.

Was pointing out that they were all night blooming plants be redundant? ...Probably, so instead of doing that Cece decided to focus on the second question asked. That one she could provide some insight on.

"I mean, I think a little encouragement couldn't hurt." She was being serious here. "My friend talks to his plants, and I think it really helps them thrive."

What did the plants all have in common? Evan ticked off the other answers from information he knew on the flowers, raising his hand to offer another response. "They're all white in color, though the Moonflower and Tuberose can have hints of pink in them." And as someone, or someones, had said that drew in moths and other nocturnal creatures that might have interest. "They all need the proper soft lighting in order to flourish."

Though did he know exactly what that would look like? Not in the slightest.

What did the plant's have in common? Bella held her answer in as her peers offered up answers in turn that she didn't want to repeat. When it was her turn after Evan she said thoughtfully. "All three plants prefer a good weekly soak off water over getting a little bit of water every other day. They also thrive when they are fertilized regularly too." She was not an expert. Many plants she tried to care for died.

dream until your • dreams come true ~ Human pygmy puff

Sooo, night blooming plants. Jordyn took a look at the plants that the professor had on display. What did they all have in common? That was the next question. She thought about it while at the same time listening to her classmates’ responses. The first thing that came to her mind had already been commented on.

Deciding to affirm the Ravenclaw’s answer, Jordyn raised her hand. ”I agree with Ash,” She thought that that was her name. All of these are tropical plants. I’m thinking that they have to be cold in this weather, so they will need some kind of heat source to help them bloom properly.” Jordyn wouldn’t mind a little heat right now herself.

Dahlia though she had been oddly quiet for most of the lesson was very much paying attention and taking detailed notes as she normally did. Her silence was nothing to worry about at all it was merely due to her own focus on note taking and possibly getting lost in her thoughts for a moment or two here or there.

As Professor Flamsteed motioned for them all to have a look at some potted plants, Lia turned all of her attention onto that now. Sparkling blue eyes were almost glued onto the plants as she looked at each one in turn. Taking note of their similarities. What did she know about each one of them. So many many things.

Slowly she lifted her hand into the air to give her answer. "They are all known to have a very distinct scent and are used in perfume making." Not that it was an important fact right now but she liked her replies to be different.

Valentina moved a little closer to the table, taking a closer look at the flowers. Her first response was they are all white in colour but someone had already mentioned that so she remained quiet for a few minutes. Umm.

"They all take a long time to bloom, right??" She had no idea. It was just a wild guess, honestly. Oops.

Kins was content just listening. Sometimes it was a good way to save energy. So she liked to recharge when she could. But Dahlia's answer about perfume got her all excited about the possibilities to come. She wasn't sure they'd be making perfume today, but. But it'd be so cool to do it eventually so.

"Can we make perfume as a class activity one day?" It was best to voice these sort of interests because then Professors might succumb to peer pressure. Kizzy knew these things worked. Hopefully other people would agree and then they'd really have the numbers to back it up.

So...he may have reached his Herbology quota already, because he had nothing to offer with the next round's question. He had earned a point so...what more could Auntie June Professor Flamsteed really expect?

The hard part was that he still had to keep up the façade of paying attention (for the sake of his brother), but all he could think about was how he had misheard tuberose as tuberculosis and that all the flowers were white and white was also the color of moonstone and then that sounded like moonflower which was also white...and around and around his head went a spinning.

...like his fingers did with the key to wind up his little modified deconstructed and then reconstructed with some modifications dungbomb in his pocket.

Maya giggled quietly at Kinsay's responses. If the evening chill hadn't been sufficient in keeping her awake, the Gryffindor's questions certainly did. Hearing her ask about making perfume in class did make Maya's back straighten with interest. It would be rather fun trying to make their own perfume in class, wouldn't it? Especially with the flowers currently on display.

But to the professor's question to the class, Maya didn't really have an answer that everyone else hadn't already mentioned. The only thing that no one had seemed to mention was how absolutely beautiful the flowers were currently and they weren't even bloomed yet. And that made Maya want to touch them. So the third year remained silent.

Hah. Yoon. He proved to be quite easy to irritate. Serena might have found her next entertainment target.

Serena was quick to switch her gears to Herbology. It was quite pleasing to be learning about nocturnal plants. She rather enjoyed exploring those. Mostly the magical kind. One time she and her dad went out on a camping trip and they witness a field of blooming flowers under the moon. It was amazing.

She jotted a few notes down and then raised her hand to answer the second question. "They all have common qualities that require the night. Like, they bloom after dusk and remain until morning light. Or they release their scent during the night after its fragrance has been building up from the day's sunlight."

"Uuuuuuuuuu......." like, deep, scratchy, Tina Belcher-y "hhhhhhhh....." was all Dia could get to come out of her mouth. Because, yeah, Herbology was not her best class. On top of that, it was night. She was used to being down in the dungeon common room, curled up in a chair somewhere with her homework and tossing discarded versions of essays into the fireplace. Not out here in the cold greenhouses learning about nocturnal plants. She had absolutely zero clue about the connection between tuberose and......what were the other two again?

And she really didn't want to make her own perfume, either. She was perfectly happy with her Channel No. 5, thank you.
