If you have unlocked the Room of Requirement, you can grow your own Venomous Tentacular (unlocking the room requires the completion of the main quest 'Jackdaw's Rest').

You cannot use the free Herbology pot in the greenhouse classroom as the plant requires a larger pot to grow in.

You can buy the recipe for a large Herbology Planter from Tomes and Scrolls in Hogsmeade. Once you have the recipe you can then summon a large Herbology planter in the Room of Requirement and grow a Venomous Tentacular.

You can equip a Venomous Tentacular onto the potions wheel which will allow you to release them during combat (to release them once equipped press R1 if on PS5). To equip it to the wheel, simply hold R1, move the analogue stick to the Venomous Tentacular icon, and release.

Once you have levelled up and have acquired Talent Points, you can spend these to upgrade certain potion and plant effects.

The Venomous Tentacular has the 'Noxious' perk which becomes available at level 22. This perk increases the acid damage of a Venomous Tentacular and gives them the ability to break shields.

To equip this perk, go to the 'Talents' menu from the main menu. Then select 'Room of Requirement' the 'Noxious' perk will be under the level 22 cap.
