"Moly is a powerful plant that can be eaten to counteract enchantments. It is a black-stemmed plant with white flowers."
Phyllida Spore, One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi[src]

Moly is powerful plant that can be eaten to counteract enchantments, and are also used as a potion ingredient, such as in the brewing of the Wiggenweld Potion. Moly plants are easily recognised by their distinctive black stems and white flowers.

Behind the scenes
