Where are the Hidden Potion Ingredients in Pottermore?

So you’ve been exploring around Pottermore looking for potion ingredients to brew potions for points but you can’t seem to find them all.  Exploring and clicking around Pottermore can be frustrating for some as people are still having issues with browsers loading the moments correctly. Other people are forgetting to use the click or zoom in option, and when they do use it they are experiencing their browsers locking up or the site crashing entirely.

This leads me to the reason this post is being written. As people go through the Pottermore moments they are leaving behind potion ingredients and skipping locations entirely. When they go to their Potions Ingredients shelf they see some empty squares.

My suggestion is to try to go back and search again to see what you can find. However, if you really get stuck you can come back to this post to see where the hidden ingredient locations are throughout the moments in Pottermore.

Here are the hidden Pottermore Potion Ingredients by earliest to last Chapters

    I’m guessing that the unicorn horn will have to be bought, then?

    • IceWolf10337 April 27, 2012, 5:49 pm

      Yes. But on the bright side, they give you around 50 of them instead of just a couple.

    I used the dried nettles but I need some more!

    • NightEcho412 September 26, 2012, 6:26 am

      I also used up mine and didn’t have any D:
      But i went back to chapter one of book two, and i really thought i had collected in that chapter, but it appeared i was able to collect more dried nettles there anyway. Maybe it’s the same for you?

      • Hermione Granger October 11, 2012, 7:03 am

        You can collect anything ( ingredients ) from chapters , once your ingredients are over they will appear again and you can collect them again !!
        Hows that ?!?!?!?!?

    • charmheart17549 September 26, 2012, 6:49 pm

    This should maybe be updated. Because I know that Flubberworm Mucus is possible to find now, but I don’t see it listed here and don’t remember where I found it.
