Harry Potter theory for Book 7 Deathly Hallows

Is Grandma Longbottom up to something?
In the Order of the Phoenix while visiting the closed wing of the Hospital the fab four (Harry, Hermonie, Ron and Ginny) stumble across Broderick Bode who was on his way to making a nice recovery. While there Bode was given a plant that turned out to be devils snare (pg. 512 Order of the Phoenix American Edition). Grandma Lonfbottom well known as a herbalist (the only class that Neville thrives in) would be able to spot Devil snare as easily as a cub scout master could spot poison ivy. More importantly she would be able to disguise it as Flitterbloom. My theory is that Grandma Longbottom dropped the plant off with the other packages on the way in.
Even her description is not one used to describe a loving grandmother with such phrases as a formable witch ... wearing a hat ... with a stuffed vulture... a shriveled, claw like hand.... casting a sternly appraising look down her rather bony nose.
My theory is that to protect her only grandson Grandma Longbottom sold out her own son and daughter in law (who she un-affectionately refers to as his son’s wife). The prediction that only one can survive could have refereed to either Harry or Neville. In conclusion, I feel that Grandma is up to something that we will soon learn about in the next book Deathly Hallows.
