Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Plant Orb of Nurturing

The orb of nurturing is the last part of Scar’s quest in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

To fully restore Sunlit Plateau, players will need to plant the orb of nurturing and wait for it to grow.

However, it isn’t exactly clear how to plant it or how long one should wait to harvest it.

An essential part of progressing this quest is unlocking the Sunlit Plateau biome, and beginning Scar’s quest.

In this guide, I will explain how to get and plant the orb of nurturing in Disney Dreamlight Valley, as well as how long to wait before it’s ready for harvest.

How to Get Orb of Nurturing

To get the orb of nurturing in Disney Dreamlight Valley, players have to progress through the first two steps in Scar’s quest.

For the first part, players are tasked with exploring the Vitalys mines, interacting with the barrel, and crafting certain items to unblock the river. If you haven’t completed it yet, consider checking out our guide on how to do so.

For the second part, Scar requires gathering certain ingredients and crafting a miracle growth elixir. This elixir will be a key part of planting the orb of nurturing.

With these completed, follow the questline and after interacting with Scar and Merlin, you’ll unlock a dimmed orb of nurturing. However, the orb is dimmed and doesn’t have enough power to restore Sunlit Plateau.

How to Plant the Orb of Nurturing

Since the orb is dimmed, players need to restore its power. The only way to do that is by planting the orb of nurturing right next to the Sunlit Plateau pillar.

Plant the orb as close as possible to the Sunlit Plateau pillar to complete this step.

Thankfully, the process is extremely easy. Simply walk as close as you can to the pillar and dig a hole with your shovel. In that hole, if you dug close enough, you will be able to plant the orb of nurturing, just as if it was an ordinary seed.

And that’s it! Now the waiting game begins. Just make sure to water it often with the recently upgraded watering can.

As hinted by the quest, this process takes a few real-life days. Specifically, after planting the orb of nurturing, players will need to wait 3 real-life days until it grows fully.

However, that’s the best-case scenario if the orb is always watered. The best tip of advice here is to always keep an eye on the orb and try to water it multiple times each day.

And that’s all. After a few days, depending on how often you watered it, the orb of nurturing will be fully grown and you’ll be able to progress Scar’s quest and repair the pillar in Sunlit Plateau.


To sum up, that’s everything you need to know on how to get and plant the orb of nurturing in Disney Dreamlight Valley. You need to progress Scar’s quest until the end and then plant it next to the pillar in Sunlit Plateau.

As for growing it, it takes a few real-life days, depending on how often you water it.
