Once you interact with the portal, you’ll see text boxes with three different words and the option to back away. You’ll have to pick the correct word for each list.

What Is the Purple Potato Used for in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

After getting your hands on the purple potato item, head to any nearby crafting station to find the Royal Purple Potion item under Potion & Enchantment. Using the purple potato and an empty vial, you can create this item and craft the Rainbow potion once you have the other potato mixtures.

We suspect the Rainbow potion may be involved in a future mission or other secrets. While this quest is still a mystery to us all, upcoming updates may unveil exactly what this and other potions do.

Update: I can confirm now that the rainbow potion is used to obtain the rainbow fox companion after completing the Dark Castle quest line. However, you need all six potato potions to create the rainbow potion!
