Talk to Scar

To start the Nature & Nurture you will first need to talk to the new addition, Scar. He should be inside his house which looks like an Elephant skull in the Sunlit Plateau.

Speak to him and he will tell you that the river that runs through the Sunlit Plateau is blocked and you need to unblock it to restore the Sunlit Plateau back to its former glory.

Enter The Vitalys Mines

After telling you to unblock the river you will be directed into the Vitalys Mines to discover what is causing the blockage.

It’s recommended you explore the mine and collect some of the gems while you’re there since they’re worth a lot of money. There are also plenty of chests to open, some containing useful ingredients for the rest of the quest. Particularly the green chest near the campsite on the right of the entrance.

While exploring, you will come across a barrel and a sign. Read the sign, speak to Merlin, and begin preparing the ingredients required.

Once you’re in the Vitalys Mines, head back up to the barrel and put in the Crackling Candy and the Dried Ginger.

This will break the blockage and water will flow freely again. However, once this has been achieved, a mysterious figure will appear.

Follow the Forgotten

Follow the figure out of the mine and through the portal. They will drop a memory so be sure to pick that up and speak to Merlin about it.

He will tell you that the ‘memory’ you picked up was actually the dull Orb of Vitality. To bring it back to life you need to craft a Miracle Growth Elixir.

Make the Miracle Growth Elixir

The Miracle Growth Elixir consists of:

  • 1,000 Dreamlight
  • 10 Rich Soil
  • 10 Vitalys Crystals

We have a guide on the best way to get hold of Rich Soil here so be sure to check it out if you need to locate some.

As for the Crystals, you’ll be able to grab them from the glowing mining spots in the Vitalys Mines.

Once you’ve crafted this, place it on your watering can and speak to Merlin again.

The last step of the Nature & Nurture quest will take a few days to complete.

Simply dig up the ground just in front of the Pillar in the Sunlit Plateau, plant the Orb of Nurturing, and water it with your newly upgraded watering can. Keep tending to it for a few days and the quest will be complete.

That’s how you can complete the Nature & Nurture main quest line. While you’re waiting for the Orb of Nurturing to finally grow, take a look at some of our other Disney Dreamlight Valley guides:
