Why herbs might not harvest in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

Some players took to Reddit after noticing that they could not harvest any herbs in their valleys which potentially became a problem while completing various friendship or story quests. Many of these quests require players to grow herbs, and harvest plants for either cooking or simply collecting them to get to the next step.

The problem appears to be related to changing your device time to make the Orb of Nurturing from Nature & Nurture grow faster (it generally takes about two days.) While changing the device time works to prompt the Orb to grow without waiting, this causes issues beyond herbs not growing, such as being unable to collect fish from Moana's boat.

There are a few things that you could try to mitigate the issue. You can reset your device time and correct the time, then restart your device and restart your game. However, some players reported that this issue will persist until about an hour or so after the time you originally changed your device. If the problem persists, you may have to wait until the time you originally changed your device for the issue to resolve itself.

You can generally tell how long it will take to resolve by checking Moana's boat. When she can restock fish, you should be able to gather herbs again. Some players have also reported issues harvesting herbs without adjusting their device time. Via Twitter, Gameloft has acknowledged that they are looking into this. Gameloft has constructed an Issues Tracker Trello Board that you can always check to see the status of known bugs and bugs being investigated.
