"A number of small scuffles broke out in the corridors, culminating in a nasty incident in which a Gryffindor fourth-year and a Slytherin sixth-year ended up in the hospital wing with leeks sprouting out of their ears."
— Description[src]

The Leek jinx[1] (incantation unknown) was a jinx[1] that could be used to make leeks sprout from the victim's ears.[2]


In June of 1994, a series of nasty incidents in the prelude to the Gryffindor-Slytherin Quidditch match in the finale of the Inter-House Quidditch Cup ended abruptly with the use of this spell on a Gryffindor fourth year and a Slytherin sixth year; this necessitated their visitation of the Hospital Wing.[2]
