Snape grass detail.png

Snape grass is an item used in the making of prayer potions and fishing potions. It is also used when making a hangover cure, which is needed in the Plague City quest and the Skippy and the Mogres miniquest, and may be required in Fairytale I - Growing Pains.

According to the book Gielinor's flora - allotments, snape grass has a subtle fruity flavour and is often used in teas. When crushed, the leaves emit a fruit smell which can be used to repel some insects, but interestingly has been known to attract bees. In addition, the leaves change colour from green to red during changing autumn temperatures, but this does not occur in game.

Farming[edit | edit source]

Snape grass can be farmed at level 61 Farming in an allotment using snape grass seeds. They give 82 experience for planting and 82 per Snape grass harvested. Players can pay a gardener 5 jangerberries to protect their patches of snape grass. Alternatively, at level 58 Farming players can plant a White lily in the flower patch to protect the snape grass.

When placed in a compost bin, snape grass will create supercompost.
