Arriving at Herblore Habitat:

There are different ways to arrive at Herblore Habitat. The most effective way is to travel to Taverley and purchase juju teleport spiritbags from Bettamax.

Another option is to use the gnome glider to travel to east Karamja and then walk to Herblore Habitat.

To begin and understand what is going on speak to Papa Mambo and he will give you some starting vine flower seeds.

Areas:

Herblore Habitat is split up into four areas. In each area there are different things to do. They are as follows:

Area 1 (North)

When using the juju teleport spiritbag you will arrive in this area. Papa Mambo is located here. When you attract jadinkos by having the correct combinations they will be released into this area where you will have the ability to catch them (in this area it is limited to common, amphibious, and draconic jadinkos.) There is a cauldron that can be used as a water supply for vials and buckets.

Area 1

Area 2 (Middle)

This is the farming area. There are 5 different patches where you have the ability to plant fruit trees, vines, bushes, and herbs. In the middle there is an environment feature that is used to build structures. This is where you plant different plants and find specific combinations to attract jadinkos to the area.

Area 2

Area 3 (South)

This area is a tracking and marasamaw trap area for the following jadinkos: carrion and cannibal.

Area 3

Area 4 (East)

This is the area that saradomin, guthix, and zamorak jadinkos will be attracted into once you have found the correct combination for the week. There is also a extra herb patch located here.

Area 4

Papa Mambo's Shop:

Papa Mambo is not only the keeper of Herblore Habitat, but he also sells items that are very useful when training in the habitat. Below is the wares of his store:

Papa Mambo Shop

Farming:

Farming in Herblore Habitat is the same as it would be in any other area of RuneScape. Speak with Astlayrix to understand what is going on and you will then be able to see a list of correct combinations that Astlayrix will keep for you incase you forget.

There are only four types of seeds that you can plant in Herblore Habitat: vine flower seeds, vine bush seeds, herbs (specific to Herblore Habitat), and fruit trees.

All fruit trees can be grown in this patch, however only apple, banana, and orange will attract jadinkos and those are the only fruit tree seeds jadinkos may possibly drop.

Zombie Gardener:

The Zombie Gardener in the middle area will look after your crops for the following payments:

  • Apple tree : 9 x Raw sweetcorn
  • Banana tree : 4 x Basket of apples
  • Orange tree : 3 x Basket of strawberries
  • Lergberry bushes : 3 x red vine blossom
  • Kalferberry bushes : 3 x lergberries
  • Erzille : 3 x green vine blossom
  • Ugune : 3 x blue vine blossom
  • Argway : 4 x red vine blossom
  • Shengo : 5 x lergberries
  • Samaden : 5 x kalferberries

Construction:

Construction may not be trained in Herblore Habitat, but it will certainly save you a lot of money if you have a high Construction level.

Many jadinkos have a special environmental feature that helps attract them. You do not gain any construction experience by building environmental features. You also do not need a hammer or a saw to build the features either. If you do not have a high enough construction level, then speak to Papa Mambo and he will construct the feature for you but for a hefty price. Below is a list of features and what their cost would normally be if you do not have a high enough construction level.

Environmental Feature Picture Construction to build Papa Mambo's cost
Empty Empty N/A N/A
Boneyard Boneyard 56 56,000 coins
Abandoned house Abandoned house 57 57,000 coins

Pond Pond 65 65,000 coins
Standing stones Standing stones 70 70,000 coins
Dark pit Dark pit 80 80,000 coins

Hunter:

Upon first entering Herblore Habitat there will be no jadinkos in the area. This is because you will need to find different combinations of environmental features, vine bushes, vine flowers, fruit trees, and possibly even the mixture of a juju potion to attract jadinkos to the area.

Equipment:

You will find the need for some basic hunter equipment to track or trap jadinkos. Luckily Papa Mambo sells it all. Below is list:

Item Picture Use Papa Mambo's cost
Marasamaw plant Marasamaw plant Used to capture jadinkos as a box trap would 38 coins
Noose wand Noose wand Used to catch jadinkos when tracking 4 coins

Marasamaw trapping:

Using a marasamaw plant is no different than using a box trap to trap jadinkos. Below is a table and the specific combinations needed to trap each type of jadinko. Note: Dead trees will still work towards attracting jadinkos.
