    Mandrake's (500) and Mandrake Seeds (800) can be purchased from the Dogweed & Deathcap in Hogsmeade. It's far cheaper to grow your own so I suggest buying the seeds. Mandrakes will grow in any sized pot and can be made early at the potting table in the Greenhouse.

    Once you have some Mandrake's in your possession equip them by holding cn_LB to open the equipment wheel. Once highlighted tapping cn_LB will pull out a Mandrake to use in combat. This will stun all enemies around you, and as the achievement suggests you need to stun 10 different named enemies. There's two methods you can do this:

    Method 1:
    Gather 1x Mandrake and manual save before engaging a group of enemies. Use the Mandrake to stun the group. Then reload the save, fly to another group and repeat. Continually using the 1x Mandrake until you've stunned 10 different types.

    Method 2:
    Grow around 5x Mandrake's and take them into a Dark Arts Battle Arena. As each wave starts use the Mandrake to stun the 5 or more enemies each round. You should get the achievement on the 5th wave if the groups have been diverse enough.

    In this video I will show you an easy way to grow mandrakes using the room of requirement. (10-20 mandrakes in 20 minutes)

    Once you have some mandrakes just fast travel to the forbidden forest and stun ten enemies using the mandrakes.

    (To clarify in the video you do not need the large plant potting table to grow mandrakes I just suggest you buy that because you can grow any plant on it.)

    Mandrakes can be purchased from merchants in Hogsmeade and around the open world. You can also grow them after purchasing the seeds in Hogsmeade and unlocking planters from Herbology Class and the Room of Requirement main quests. Equip them in your item wheel and head to any of the Battle Arenas and use them to stun enemies. It should only take a couple tries to cumulatively stun 10 different enemies.
