The Herblore Habitat is found within a members' only area. The habitat is safe in the sense that nothing can harm you unless you are poisoned before entering; however, beware of the Spiders and Jogres who roam the jungle near the habitat. They can still damage lower-levelled individuals.
The Heblore Habitat is located in the deep, south-east corner of Karamja, east of the Kharazi Jungle. The easiest and fastest way to reach the habitat would be to speak with Bettamax in Taverley and purchase Juju teleport spiritbags, which will teleport you to Papa Mambo in the habitat. Papa Mambo is a witchdoctor who has been hard at work and has used his powers to create an area where Farming, Herblore, and Hunter can all be trained within a small amount of space. You may talk to Astlayrix for a run-down on the Herblore Habitat.
The Herblore Habitat requires at least 54 Farming, 70 Hunter, 54 Herblore, and possibly 54 Construction, but it is recommended that you get at least 69 Farming and 78 Hunter as this grants you access to much of what the habitat has to offer.
Farming and Hunter equipment are used to plant the crops and hunt the creatures, although Papa Mambo will sell everything you need to get started (this does not include bush or fruit tree seeds), so you may wish to bring only cash to the habitat. A Tool leprechaun will be there to store Farming equipment for you if you buy any, or you can travel to another one around the world to store the tools beforehand.
For some jadinkos, artificial environmental features may need to be built on the hotspot provided in the habitat in order to attract them. With the right Construction level, you can build these free of charge. Note that you will not need a Hammer and Saw as with regular Construction activities. If you do not have the right Construction level to build the feature you want, you will have to ask Papa Mambo to construct them for you at a hefty fee. The cost of each feature is shown in the table below.
No experience is gained in Construction in the habitat at all. You can request the assistance of another player to build a feature for you, and this is highly recommended for those who do not have the required level as this means you will not have to pay.
In order to attract any type of jadinko and begin hunting them, you must be able to plant seeds of certain crops, including: coloured vines (plant in Vine flower patch) and special berry bushes found only in the habitat (plant in Vine bush patch), or fruit trees (plant in fruit tree patch). Any of these seeds can be obtained from hunting jadinkos. However, bush and herb seeds can only be obtained from hunting, while the vine seeds can also be purchased from Papa Mambo, and fruit tree seeds can also be bought from the Grand Exchange or found in a Bird's nest (tree).
Using your Farming skills, you can also grow vine herbs within the habitat to make useful potions, which are made using the Herblore skill. When you obtain herb seeds, they can be planted in two vine herb patches: one where the other Farming patches are located (fruit tree, vine flowers etc.), and the other across an island to the east which can be reached by climbing up a vine leading there.
If you talk to Papa Mambo for free seeds, he will give you one seed of each coloured vine every time. He will only do this as long as you have not caught your first jadinko, so you may want to take around 5 of each before you continue.
You do not need to wait for the plants to grow fully; they will be able to attract jadinkos regardless of what stage of growth they are in (even if they were only just planted!), unless they die due to disease. At any point, you may request the assistance of another player who has the correct Farming level to plant your seeds.
The only ways to obtain fruit tree seeds is from a Bird's nest (tree) or from a jadinko drop.
|Seed||Plant||Level Required||Planting Experience||Harvesting Experience||Check-health Bonus||Produce|
+ These are the only trees that will attract jadinkos, however you may plant others. Additionally, only these types of seeds will be dropped by jadinkos.
The only way to obtain vine bush seeds is from a jadinko drop.

While hunting jadinkos, you may obtain some herb seeds. These are planted in two special vine herb patches; one inside the area where Astlayrix and the rest of the patches are, and another on the island to the east which you can get to by climbing up the vine leading there and crossing it. Suggestively, they are the special herbs used to create the various useful Juju potions.

The Zombie farmer at the farming patches will look after your tree and bush plants, but only if you pay him to do so.

Unique Juju potions can be made with the ingredients you have earned while training in the habitat. With the herbs obtained from Farming and the jadinko vines gathered by Hunting, mix the herb into a Juju vial of water (sold by Papa Mambo for 10gp each, or a Juju vial pack of 25 vials for 250gp each), then mix the vine with the unfinished potion. Each of them have unique and powerful effects, although the Juju hunter potion is actually only used within the habitat to be poured on vine flowers to temporarily attract certain jadinkos, and the three god potions grant experience bonuses only within the habitat. These potions have no other use.
All of the herbs for the potions can be grown in your Vine herb farming patch. When picked, they will be grimy and need to be cleaned before they can be used for mixing.

The Tool leprechaun in the habitat is able to store six types of three-dose Juju potions for you with a limit of 30 potions per type, these being: Juju hunter potion, Juju farming potion, Scentless potion, Saradomin's blessing, Guthix's gift, and Zamorak's favour.
Once you have managed to attract a type of jadinko, they will appear either on the north or south side of the habitat, or for the god jadinkos, they will appear on the eastern island. Astlayrix will help you remember the required combination for it (except for god jadinkos). Right-click on him and select 'Jadinko-requirements' to open an interface showing every Jadinko you have discovered so far.
Note that because the requirements for the three god jadinkos (Saradomin, Guthix, and Zamorak) change on a weekly basis, he will not be able to remember the requirements for you. Every player's required combinations for those jadinkos are different; you must discover them yourself.
Most jadinkos require Marasamaw plant traps to hunt, and are hunted in the same manner as box-trapped creatures. Simply lay the trap near where they are and wait for them to get trapped. You can increase the chances of successfully catching one by wearing Witchdoctor camouflage gear (which is the only camouflage equipment for the Herblore Habitat), smoking the traps with a Torch, drinking a Scentless potion, and baiting the traps with Withered vines.

+ You will need to use a Juju hunter potion on the vine flowers for these jadinkos. The potion's effect will last for around 10 minutes before it wears off.
Diseased, Shadow, and Camouflaged jadinkos are caught through tracking unlike the other ones. The habitat's tracking area is located in the south side, where all the bushes, holes, and burrows are, and the method of tracking is just like outside the habitat; inspect a burrow, then continue searching other features in the area depending on where the footprints head towards until you discover where the jadinko is hiding. Right-click the feature and select "Attack", and you will attempt to catch it.
The pattern to discovering the jadinkos' hiding places are actually constant; the order of features to search is the same every time depending on which burrow you searched first. For every attempted catch, there is a small chance that you will fail and let the creature scatter away.

If you have hunted all of the non-god jadinkos in one week, Papa Mambo will give you an experience boost to either Hunter, Herblore, or Farming. The amount of experience granted is based on your level in the chosen skill and you may only gain an experience boost once per week. In addition to the experience boost, you will be rewarded with Witchdoctor legs or Witchdoctor robes. The Witchdoctor clothing acts as camouflage for when hunting in the Herblore Habitat, and the clothes can be sold to Papa Mambo for 5,400gp each.
If you hunt all of the god jadinkos in one week, Papa Mambo will once more give you an experience boost in either Hunter, Herblore, or Farming. This time, however, you will receive a Witchdoctor mask as a reward. The mask has an unlimited number of teleports to the Herblore Habitat and acts like camouflage when hunting in the habitat.
Wearing the Witchdoctor gear once you have caught all of the jadinkos in a given week will provide you with a momentary boost to Hunter, Herblore, or Farming XP when performing any actions relevant to each skill. This boosts lasts for 30 minutes from the moment you first wear the item and then the effect will diminsh.
