Papa Mambo's hut

The Witchdoctor's hut

Herblore Habitat is a members only area that was released on 24 November 2010. It is based in the south-east area of Karamja, and found within the confines of a jade vine grown from a cutting with the help of magic by the witch doctor Papa Mambo. Participating in the Herblore Habitat involves growing plants and creating habitats with Farming and Construction. These habitats attract jadinkos, reptilian plant creatures whose lives are linked to the vine. Once attracted to the area, the jadinkos can then be caught with Hunter for their vines. The vines can be used to make magical juju potions with Herblore. These potions can have varied effects, such as attracting rarer jadinkos to the habitat, increasing hunting success, summoning special spirits or increasing experience in certain skills.

Requirements

To begin using Herblore Habitat effectively a player must have a minimum of 54 Farming, 70 Hunter, and 54 Herblore. The highest requirements for utilising all content in Herblore Habitat are 80 Farming, 81 Hunter, 75 Herblore, and 55 Agility. A Construction level of 80 is extremely helpful, but can be assisted by another player or substituted by cash payments to Papa Mambo. It is highly recommended to have at least 56 Construction to avoid spending large sums of money. Players should also have money, a hatchet and farming tools stored in a tool leprechaun or on their tool belts. There are no quest requirements.

There are no level requirements to enter Herblore Habitat. For example, if a clue scroll requires a player to enter Herblore Habitat, they can enter the area and complete the scroll.

Getting started

To get started, players must travel to Herblore Habitat. It is advised to bring money in one's money pouch to purchase supplies from Papa Mambo's Shop. Players can teleport directly Herblore Habitat by purchasing a juju teleport spiritbag for 2,000 coins from Bettamax, who roams the western side of Taverley. The spiritbag teleports the player to the northern part of Herblore Habitat near Papa Mambo. Papa Mambo's Shop also sells spiritbags.

It is also possible to get to Herblore Habitat on foot. The entrance is east of Shilo Village and east of the waterfall, on the south bank of the river. Climb over the vines to get inside. Shilo Village can be reached using Vigroys cart, part of the Shilo Village cart system, or Karamja gloves 3. Alternatively, use a ring of duelling to teleport to the Duel Arena, run to the Al Kharid gnome glider, and fly to Karamja (Gandius). Once in Karamja, run north west around the water and then south west until the player comes to the stepping stones. Jump across the stones, run east, and climb over the vines. Probably the easiest free and infinitely reusable method would be to use the fairy ring network: the fairy ring CJS can be used to teleport to the Kharazi Jungle, then machete through the foliage to the north and make the short walk to Herblore Habitat - although this method requires extensive questing.

Once at Herblore Habitat, players should talk to Papa Mambo located at the entrance. First-time players can ask Papa Mambo for free seeds to get started. Players can also purchase hunter and farming gear from his shop if necessary. To begin, a new player will need a few marasamaw plants, and blossom seeds.

Areas

There are 4 areas separated by vines.

North area

  • Papa Mambo's Shop. All critical supplies required can be purchased from Papa Mambo (except for hatchets, which are needed to clear the fruit tree patch)
  • The cauldron, which is just east of Papa Mambo, is a water supply for both vials and watering cans
  • Hunting area (marasamaw trapping only)

Middle area

  • Zombie farmer, who can look over all but the vine blossom patch and second vine herb patch
  • Astlayrix, who will keep track of jadinko preferences
  • Farming features
    • Vine blossom patch (northeast patch)
    • Vine bush patch (southwest patch)
    • Vine herb patch (southeast patch)
    • Regular fruit tree patch (northwest patch)
    • Regular compost bin, located on the east side
    • Tool leprechaun
  • Environmental feature patch, located in the centre

South area

East area

This part of Herblore Habitat is an island accessed using a climbing vine. The vine is an agility shortcut requiring 55 agility. Using this vine shortcut yields 30 agility experience in three parts of ten for climbing the vine, crossing the vine, and climbing back down the vine. The shortcut can be failed which results in the player having to try again. Players must climb onto the vine from the South area.

Farming

Farming in Herblore Habitat is the most important skill needed. Without the minimum requirement of level 54, the blossoms which attract the most basic jadinko cannot be planted, thus there will be nothing to hunt, and therefore no ingredients to make potions. That said, boosts and assists can be used to plant the blossoms. The scroll of life from dungeoneering works with all of the farming patches in Herblore Habitat.

Inside the middle area of Herblore Habitat, there are several farming patches:

  • A vine blossom patch, for growing vine blossoms
  • A vine bush patch, for growing vine bushes
  • A vine herb patch, for growing vine herbs (a second vine herb patch is located in the east area)
  • A fruit tree patch, for growing all normal fruit trees

Tending the patches

Tending the patches is done in the normal way:

  1. Remove weeds with a rake
  2. Optionally add compost, supercompost or cast fertile soil
  3. Plant seeds with a seed dibber
  4. Water plants (only vine blossoms and fruit tree saplings need to be watered)
  5. Harvest plants
  6. Remove plants (chop down fruit trees with a hatchet and remove the stump with a spade or remove bushes with a spade)

Like other patches, weeds will not grow back if Fairy Tale III - Orks Rift has been completed and the weed-free patch ability has been enabled.

Tool leprechaun

Herblore Habitat has a tool leprechaun, who gives access to the same tool store as all other leprechauns. This leprechaun can also store 30 of each of the following:

Juju potions Vines
Juju hunter potion (3) Corrupt vine
Juju farming potion (3) Marble vine
Scentless potion (3) Shadow vine
Saradomin's blessing (3) Saradomin vine
Zamorak's favour (3) Zamorak vine
Guthix's gift (3) Guthix vine

Compost

There is a compost bin in the Herblore Habitat farming area that works the same as compost bins at allotment patches. Several items from Herblore Habitat can be used to make compost in any compost bin. Pungent vines make supercompost when put into the compost bin. Vine herbs make regular compost. Compost is very important to successful farming because it affects growth, disease, and harvest similar to regular farming. It is recommended to use supercompost whenever possible.

Vine blossom patch

The vine blossom patch is the most basic patch for attracting jadinkos. Only blossom seeds can be planted in this patch. Blossom seeds are easy to obtain because they are the only seeds that can be purchased from Papa Mamba. Players can buy all three blossom seed colours from Papa Mambo's Shop for 50gp each. The vine blossom patch cannot be protected by the zombie farmer.

Vine herb patches

There are two vine herb patches at Herblore Habitat. One is located in the middle area, while the other can be found in the east area. Only vine herbs may be grown here. The herb seeds can be obtained from hunting the jadinkos. Only the vine herb patch in the middle area can be protected by paying the zombie farmer. Since vine herb seeds are so rare it is worthwhile to pay to have them watched. Unless the player finds they are getting more seeds than they can grow, use the patch in the east area only if it is absolutely necessary or if the player intends to remain close by to keep an eye on them. The witchdoctor mask is a useful teleport to return to the middle area herb vine patch from the second herb vine patch in the east area.

Jadinkos

Jadinkos are creatures that can be hunted in the Herblore Habitat. Ten types of jadinkos are caught using box trapping with a marasamaw plant and an optional withered vine or pungent vine as bait. The other three jadinko types are tracked and caught with the noose wand on the tool belt. Each jadinko requires certain environmental conditions in order to be attracted to the hunter areas. Three of the jadinkos caught with a marasamaw plant are named after the three main gods and their preferences change every week and are different for every player. The other ten jadinkos have the same environmental preferences each week. Astlayrix, who is found in the middle area, can give the player more information about catching jadinkos and keeps track of jadinko preferences for the player.

Attracting jadinkos

Each type of jadinko requires a different combination of plants to attract them in the Herblore Habitat farming patches. Catching at least one of all 10 jadinkos weekly provides experience rewards and a chance to obtain a piece of the Witchdoctor camouflage gear. The Rewards section of this page has more detailed information.

Combinations / Conditions

The following table outlines the combinations that each jadinko is attracted to. If the Jadinko has a certain preference, the blossom, environmental feature, juju hunter potion, bush, or fruit tree type will be listed, otherwise any type of seed can be used. Plants don't need to be fully grown to take effect. However, their effect will stop working immediately if they get diseased/die.

Efficient catching method

The player will need the following for the "one seed efficient" method:

  • 1 Green/Red/Blue blossom seeds
  • 1 Kalferberry/Lergberry seeds
  • 1 Banana/Apple/Orange saplings
  • 3 strawberry baskets (noted), if the player wants to make sure the orange tree matures
  • 1 Juju hunter potion (2 doses will suffice)
  • Up to 5 Marasamaw plants (depending on the player's hunting level)
  • Hunter's Catalyst fragment/Combined Catalyst fragment (Optional, removes need to reset marasamaw plants on failed catches)
  • Spade (Optional. Use on the fruit tree patches to quickly plant new seeds. Tool belt will not work)
  • Do not water the vine blossom patch while creating the habitats to attract the jadinkos. Watering the vine blossom patch will delay the hint message for the god jadinko. If the patch is watered, wait until watering expires and then watch for hint message. The effect on the hint message from watering the vine blossom patch has been tested and found to be correct.

A "one seed efficient" method to unlock and catch all 10 Jadinkos would be to follow these steps:

  1. Common jadinko - Plant a green blossom seed (Marasamaw, North)
  2. Carrion jadinko - Plant a kalferberry bush and build a boneyard (Marasamaw, South)
  3. Diseased jadinko - Plant a banana tree (Noose wand, South)
  4. Cannibal jadinko - Build tall grass, use a dose of juju hunter potion on the vine blossom patch (Marasamaw, South)
  5. Shadow jadinko - Plant a red blossom seed and build an abandoned house (Noose wand, South)
  6. Aquatic jadinko - Plant an apple tree, build a pond, and use another dose of juju hunter potion on the vine blossom patch if the effect of the previous potion has worn off (Marasamaw, South)
  7. Camouflaged jadinko - Plant a lergberry bush, build standing stones, and use another dose of juju hunter potion on the vine blossom patch if the effect of the previous potion has worn off (Noose wand, South)
  8. Draconic jadinko - Build a dark pit and use another dose of juju hunter potion on the vine blossom patch if the effect of the previous potion has worn off. Trap until the juju hunter potion effect wears off. (Marasamaw, North)
  9. Amphibious jadinko - Plant a blue blossom seed and build a pond (Marasamaw, North)
  10. Igneous jadinko - Plant an orange tree (pay 3 strawberry baskets to zombie gardener), build a thermal vent (Marasamaw, South)

While using the juju hunter potion is not required to attract all 10 jadinko types, if it is applied then the chance of attracting god jadinkos hints will increase, as they can only be attracted with treated blossom flowers. Talking to Astlayrix near the vine blossom patch will provide the player with instructions/tour and unlock common and igneous jadinkos.

As the juju hunter potion lasts 10 minutes (and the effects do not vanish if the players digs up the blossoms to replace them with a different blossom seed colour) it is possible to catch all the jadinkos with just the one dose, presuming the player only catches one or two of each type. This entire cycle uses one of each blossom seed colour type, one of each bush seed type, and one of each fruit tree sapling type - the only repeated item is to rebuild a pond.

God Jadinkos

There are 3 god jadinkos, Saradomin, Zamorak, and Guthix. Their preferences change weekly and are different for each player.

If the player has 2 or 3 out of the 4 requirements for a particular god jadinko and has a juju hunter potion in effect, the player may get a 'hint' message in their chat box, alerting the player that x number of the god jadinko preferences have been met. In addition, a matching god jadinko will make a short appearance next to the player inside of the middle area when a hint is received.

Jadinko Hunter Level XP Method Juju hunter potion? Blossom Environmental feature Bush Fruit Tree Vine Seeds
Guthix 81 600 Marasamaw trap (East) Yes Different from othersRandom Random Same as others Guthix vine All

Saradomin 81 600 Marasamaw trap (East) Yes Different from othersRandom Random Same as others Saradomin vine All

Just like regular jadinkos, god jadinko combinations do not include the herb patch.


Attracting God jadinkos

Kalferberry6

Cycling through the environmental features is the easiest way to get hint messages shown in 'All Chat'. As each god jadinko has a unique blossom each week, the addition of the correct environmental feature will secure two out of four requirements almost guaranteeing a hint. If all the player's god jadinko requirements are two and three off, the player has the wrong fruit tree.

Another strategy is to locate the required fruit tree before the bush, because every week the fruit tree is the same for all three god jadinkos. This saves the extra work of changing the fruit tree multiple times, and only changing the environmental feature patch, vine blossom patch, and vine bush patch.

Keep in mind these facts:

  • Whatever is growing in the vine blossom, vine bush, and fruit tree patches do not need to be fully grown to attract the god jadinkos.
  • The potion effect does not wear off if the player picks the blossoms or removes them with a spade.
  • Do not water the vine blossom patch while determining requirements for attracting god jadinkos. Watering the vine blossom patch will delay the hint message for the god jadinko. If the patch is watered, wait until watering expires and then watch for hint message. The effect on the hint message from watering the vine blossom patch has been tested and found to be correct.
  • If the player has 3 or 4 of the requirements and removes one of them, the player might not be warned that the player now has only 2 or 3, so keep good track of the warning messages.
  • It may also be a requirement to have an clear vine bush patch, clear fruit tree patch or a clear environmental feature patch to successfully attract the god jadinkos.
  • The god jadinkos may or may not be attracted by the same things in the bush patch and the environmental feature patch. It's perfectly possible for two of them to be attracted by a planted lergberry bush while the third is attracted by a clear bush patch, for example.
  • Vine blossoms are the only patch where each god jadinko is always attracted to a separate type, and never to an clear patch.
  • The vine blossom patch needs to be treated with a juju hunter potion for god jadinkos to be attracted.
  • A juju hunter potion has a 10 minute timer and must be active to attract the god jadinkos.
  • Growing apple and banana trees can be cleared prematurely by right clicking the patch; an orange tree however, requires that the player "use" a spade from their inventory on the patch (Papa Mambo sells spades for 3 coins).
  • The nearby island spawn point for god jadinkos is located south of the farming section and accessed by using the climbing vine to enter the island.
  • The reset time for god jadinkos is the same as weekly resets; Wednesday 00:00 UTC. (Players need to be aware of the weekly reset for their geographical location.)

Trial and error strategy

To attract a god jadinko (random):

  • 1. Clear fruit tree and vine bush in Herblore Habitat farming area. If a vine blossom is grown in the vine blossom patch it can remain.
  • 2. Plant one blossom seed type in the vine blossom patch (e.g. red blossom seed). If a vine blossom is grown in the vine blossom patch it can remain.
    • Apply a dose of juju hunter potion to the vine blossom patch.
    • Do not water the vine blossom patch while determining requirements for attracting god jadinkos as it will delay the hint message. If the patch is watered, wait until watering expires and then watch for hint message.
  • 3. Cycle through environmental features: Use the Construct Environmental Feature interface in the middle of the Herblore Habitat farming area and build each feature beginning with 'No feature'. Watch carefully for hint message in chat interface, 'All Chat', regarding god Jadinkos. Wait for message to appear 3 to 5 seconds. One of the environmental features will activate a hint message. The environmental feature 'No feature' may also be a requirement for a god jadinko.
    • All patches contain plants. If one of the environmental features activates a hint message "You have met 2 of the requirements to attract a [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then the vine blossom and environmental feature patches are correct for one of the god jadinkos. Move on to the fruit tree patch.
    • Either fruit tree or vine bush patch clear. If one of the environmental features activates a hint message "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then the vine blossom and environmental feature is correct and either the fruit tree or vine bush patch is required to be clear. Move on to the fruit tree patch, step 4.
    • Both fruit tree and vine bush patches clear. If one the environmental features activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom and environmental feature are correct, and both the fruit tree and vine bush patches are meant to be clear and are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
  • 4. Plant a fruit tree sapling in the fruit tree patch. Make sure that juju hunter potion effect is still active. Re-apply potion. Each week the fruit tree patch will be identical for all 3 god Jadinkos.
    • All patches contain plants. If the fruit tree planting activates a hint message "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then the vine blossom, environmental feature, and fruit tree patches are correct. Move on to the vine bush patch. If the fruit tree planting results in no hint message, dig up the fruit tree with a spade and replant with a different type of fruit tree sapling while watching for above hint message. When hint message appears move on to the vine bush patch.
    • Fruit patch clear. If the fruit tree planting of all 3 types of fruit tree saplings result in no hint message, then leave the fruit tree patch clear, and move on to the vine bush patch.
    • Vine patch clear. If the fruit tree planting activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree and clear vine patch are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
  • 5. Plant a bush seed in the vine bush patch. Make sure that juju hunter potion effect is still active. Re-apply potion.
    • All patches contain plants. If the bush seed planting activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree and vine bush are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area. If the bush seed planting results in no hint message, dig up the bush with a spade and replant with the other type of bush seed while watching for above hint.
    • Fruit patch clear. If the bush seed planting activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" and the fruit tree patch is clear, then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree and vine bush are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
    • Vine patch clear. If the vine patch is required to be clear the hint message "You’ve attracted some Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" will activate either when the correct environmental feature is selected (Step 3: Both fruit tree and vine bush patches clear) or when the correct fruit tree sapling is selected (Step 4: Vine patch clear).

To change to a different god jadinko:

  • 1. The fruit tree patch will not change unless it is over a week since the last fruit tree sapling planting. If it is over a week, begin again with above instructions for god jadinko (random).
    • The reset time for god jakinkos is the same as weekly resets; Wednesday 00:00 UTC. (Players need to be aware of the weekly reset for their geographical location.)
  • 2. Begin with the fruit tree patch either clear or planted determined by attracting first god jadinko. This will remain unchanged. Begin with vine bush patch either clear or planted.
    • If the fruit tree patch requirement is already determined to be clear, then this will be the requirement for all 3 god jadinkos for the week. Do not plant another fruit tree.
    • If the vine bush patch requirement is already determined to be clear, then this condition may change with the requirements for the other 2 god jadinkos.
  • 3. Change the blossom seed type in the vine blossom patch and apply juju hunter potion.
    • Note the original blossom seed colour used in attracting the first god jadinko.
    • Each week a different blossom seed type will be associated with one of the god jadinkos (e.g. red blossom = Guthix; green blossom = Saradomin; blue blossom = Zamorak).
    • Do not water the vine blossom patch while determining requirements for attracting god jadinkos as it will delay the hint message. If the patch is watered, wait until watering expires and then watch for hint message.
  • 4. Cycle through environmental features while waiting for hint message.
    • Correct Vine Bush. If one of the environmental features activates a hint "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinkos to the nearby island", then then vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
    • Incorrect Vine Bush. If one of the environmental features activates a hint "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then vine blossom, environmental feature, and fruit tree patches are correct. Plant a bush seed if patch is empty or plant other bush seed type in the vine bush patch while watching for hint message. If planting a bush seed in an clear vine bush patch activates the same hint message as above, replant with other bush seed while watching for hint message.
      • If the bush seed planting in the vine bush patch activates hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinkos to the nearby island", then the fruit tree, environmental feature, vine blossom, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
    • Both fruit and vine bush patches clear. If one of the environmental features activates a hint "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinkos to the nearby island", then then vine blossom, environmental feature, and clear fruit tree and clear bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
    • Vine bush patch is clear. If one of the environmental features activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island", then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree, and empty vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
  • 5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for third god jadinko.


(Alternate Method: This alternate method uses less bush seeds)

  • 3. Change the blossom seed type in the vine blossom patch and apply juju hunter potion.
  • 4. Cycle through environmental features while watching for hint message.
    • Incorrect Vine Blossom If the environmental feature activates the hint message "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then vine blossom, environmental feature, and fruit tree patches are correct. Instead of the planting a bush seed, plant other blossom seed colour (do not use original blossom seed colour) in vine blossom patch and cycle through environmental features again while watching for hint message.
      • Match. If one of the environmental features activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
      • No match. If one of the environmental features activates a hint message "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then vine blossom, environmental feature, and fruit tree patches are correct. Plant other bush seed type in the vine bush patch while waiting for hint message.
        • If planting other bush seed type in the vine bush patch activates the message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
  • 5. Plant the last blossom seed colour type in the vine blossom patch.
    • Make sure that juju hunter potion effect is still active. Re-apply potion if needed.
  • 6. Cycle through environmental features while watching for hint message.
    • Correct Vine Bush. If the previous blossom seed colour was 'No Match' and the vine bush seed was changed, then the bush seed should not require changing again. If an environmental feature activates a hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinkos to the nearby island", then the fruit tree, environmental feature, vine blossom, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.
    • Incorrect Vine Bush. If planting the last blossom seed colour activates the hint message "You have met 3 of the requirements to attract a Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] jadinko", then the vine blossom, environmental feature, and fruit tree patches are correct. Plant the other bush seed.
      • If planting the other bush seed activates hint message "You’ve attracted some [Saradomin/Zamorak/Guthix] Jadinko to the nearby island" then the vine blossom, environmental feature, fruit tree, and vine bush patches are correct. One type of god jadinko is attracted to the habitat and will spawn on the island in the east area.

Construction

Construction plays a role in Herblore Habitat. The construction skill is used in building environmental features that are necessary for attracting jadinkos with certain preferences. There is no construction experience gained for building environmental features; it uses no materials and does not require a saw or hammer. It is possible to boost up to 3 Construction levels by drinking a cup of tea made in a player owned house and then quickly teleporting to the Herblore Habitat area (with a juju teleport spiritbag or the witchdoctor mask). Cups of tea from the Ye Olde Tea Shoppe (a tea stall in southeast Varrock) or from a tea flask or a heated tea flask do not boost construction. Players can also request assistance from other players in order to meet the required levels. Neither player will receive experience (because the action doesn't grant experience), but this allows players to build the environmental feature for free.

If the player does not have the Construction levels required to build the environmental features, talk to Papa Mambo and select the 'Build' option. The player will need to do this each time they change the environmental feature without the required Construction level. It can cost up to 80,000 coins to build a single environmental feature.

Potions

Main article: Juju potion
Main article: Perfect juju potion

Potions can be made out of the many items collected while hunting and farming. Each has a unique ability.

All juju potions must be made in special juju vials obtained from Papa Mambo to make 3-dose juju potions. Perfect juju potions are made by upgrading 3-dose juju potions. Perfect juju potions can be decanted into potion flasks to make 6-dose perfect juju potion flasks. Potions can be decanted at the Grand Exchanges and the Max Guild.

The effects of the scroll of cleansing from dungeoneering work with all of the potions in Herblore Habitat.

Of the various juju potions, only 6 types can be stored with the tool leprechaun at Herblore Habitat, and they must be 3-dose vials. The others can only be stored in the player's bank. Six types of vines used in juju potions may also be stored with the tool leprechaun. A maximum of 30 vines and potions of each type may be stored.

Rewards

Besides receiving experience and Juju potions, players can earn weekly experience rewards and a boost-enhancing costume that provides teleportation to Herblore Habitat. Strange rocks may also be found whilst training in the area.

Weekly experience

The reset time for god jadinkos is the same as weekly resets; Wednesday 00:00 UTC. (Players need to be aware of the weekly reset for their geographical location.)

If the player catches at least one of each jadinko type in the same week, Papa Mambo will message in 'All Chat' regarding the reward. A player may choose to receive experience in farming, hunter, or herblore. The amount of experience earned is equal to twice as much experience as the player would receive for turning in a pair of strange rocks.

If the player catches at least one of each God jadinko in the same week, Papa Mambo will message in 'All Chat' regarding the option to receive another reward - which will be 50% of the regular jadinko reward. If the player catches the God jadinkos before catching the regular ones, the player will NOT get a message from Papa Mambo about collecting all the God jadinkos, but the player can still claim the bonus reward after all 10 regular jadinkos are caught.

If the player catches all the jadinkos but does not claim the reward from Papa Mambo, the reward will be lost at the next reset.

The formula is $ \text{Experience} = 2x^2 - 4x + 200 $, where x is the skill level.

Experience
0 Experience Points

Extra experience in Herblore Habitat

In addition to the "chunk" experience bonus given by Papa Mambo for catching all three god jadinkos in a given week, there is a thirty minute experience bonus given to all Herblore Habitat related Hunting, Farming, and Herblore training. This time begins when the player collects the chunk experience bonus, and ends prematurely if the player logs, so only collect the reward when ready to use the thirty minutes. The bonus experience depends on the witchdoctor clothing worn, with the mask and top giving 2% each and the legs 1%.

Witchdoctor camouflage gear

Witchdoctor camouflage gear set equipped

A player wearing full Witchdoctor gear

On any week that the player catches all of the normal jadinkos at least once, the player will have a random chance to get either the witchdoctor legs or witchdoctor robes regardless of what piece(s) the player has already obtained.

The player will receive the witchdoctor mask when the player has managed to catch three god jadinkos in the same week as the player has caught ten regular jadinkos.

If the player already owns one or more Witchdoctor masks, the player will not receive an additional one after capturing all the normal and god jadinkos. It is helpful to have a Witchdoctor mask stored in the bank for quick teleporation to Herblore Habitat and another to complete the Witchdoctor Camouflage gear set stored in the costume room of the player-owned house. The drop trick can be used to bypass this restriction.

In order to obtain all 3 pieces, the player must have 55 Agility, 81 Hunter, 77 Farming, 54 Herblore and optionally 80 Construction (or money to pay for environmental features to be built). Boosts and assists can be used for Construction, but assists cannot be used to bypass the Farming requirement as the Kalferberry and Lergberry seeds are untradeable. Players can only receive one piece of either witchdoctor robes/legs during the same week and it is not uncommon for a player to get the same piece multiple weeks in a row.

The Witchdoctor camouflage gear set can be stored in the armour case of the player's costume room in the player-owned house. All three items are stored together.

After obtaining one or more pieces of the witchdoctor armour, if a player talks to Pauline Polaris at the Livid Farm on Lunar Isle, they will receive Mambo's potion. When consumed, Mambo's potion will grant the player an extra 3,000 Farming experience. The player may only receive the potion after having watched the Livid Farm introduction.
