"Hey, here's some Puffapods. They're great fun to throw about. I hear they make trolls sneeze, too."
Ron Weasley on Puffapods[src]

The Puffapod was a magical plant that produced large pink seedpods full of shining beans, which instantly flowered when they came into contact with any solid object.[1][3][2]

Description

A Puffapod

The spores of a Puffapod could cause dizziness,[3] and could also be used in potion-making.[4] Trolls appeared to be allergic to Puffapods, sneezing whenever they bloom.[5]

History

Puffapods could be found growing in Rubeus Hagrid's garden.[4] The Puffapod patch in the Forgotten Grounds at Hogwarts also contained growing Puffapods.[5]

Jacob's sibling watering a Puffapod in Herbology

During the 1988–1989 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Pomona Sprout taught fifth year students how to handle Puffapods in Herbology class.[2]

In October of 1993 at Hogwarts, Ronald Weasley accidentally dropped some of these beans onto the floor of the greenhouse they were working in for a third year Herbology class and they instantly bloomed, earning him Professor Sprout's disapproval.[1]
