When Pikmin are tossed inside one of these beautiful purple flowers, they reemerge shortly after as Purple Pikmin seeds, which can then be plucked. However, like most candypop buds, only 5 Pikmin may be tossed in before the flower withers away.
"Research from our most recent expedition has confirmed the presence of candypop buds in subterranean regions. Considering the micro-ecologies this plant has been found in, one could surmise that it could be found in any cavern, regardless of geographic region. Tossing Pikmin into this flower results in the release of Purple Pikmin seeds, regardless of the color of Pikmin tossed in. This variety of candypop contains robustly odoriferous oils. If candypop flowers could be cultivated, there is no doubt that the plants would offer multifaceted benefits to the cosmetic, medical, and tourist industries."
"This convenient purple flower secretes a dark, flavorful oil that eliminates the need for salad dressing!"
