Below is our video walkthrough on making the Polyjuice Potion in Pottermore. This potion is necessary if you want to enter the Slytherin Common Room (Book 2 Chapter 12) and are not a Slytherin. I have written some notes which I recommend you read through before attempting to brew the potion to avoid having to try over and over again. You will find both the ingredients location and the notes below the video.

Some of the ingredients required can be purchased from the Apothecary. Others of the ingredients must be picked up from within chapters.
- Fluxweed, Bicorn Horn, and Boomslang Skin – Book 2 Chapter 5
- Slytherin Student Hair – Book 2 Chapter 8
- 1:28 – Make sure you do not accidentally get Lacewing Flies into the cauldron. The way I do this is to hold in in a position where one falls out every few seconds. After one falls out onto the table, I quickly move it over the cauldron to on top of the mortar, wait for 2 to drop, and quickly move back over the cauldron and put it back on the table.
- 2:10 – When heating the cauldron, you want to increase and decrease the temperature so long as it remains in the green range. However, you don’t want to switch between the two at a rapid pace, because otherwise you will end up with a broken portion. I recommend waiting until the edge to change the temperature.
