Glowstems are used for scenery in Pikmin 2. They appear to Hocotatian explorers to be relatives of the Common Glowcap, but in actuality, these tiny, orange lights are what are known as LEDs, or light-emitting diodes. They are never seen above ground and can only be found in certain cave sublevels with a metallic layout. Despite the lack of insulation covering the live wires, Glowstems pose no electrical threat, nor any other kind, to Pikmin or leaders, and have been added to levels merely for aesthetic affect. Green variants exist as well.

In some caves, coming into contact with the "plant" will cause bomb-rocks to fall from the ceiling. When the player intends to begin the sublevel's exploration by scouring it alone, activating bomb-rocks, these plants provide a good indication of potential bomb-rock spots.


Olimar's notes

Although they are obviously unrelated, the glowstem bears a striking resemblence to the street lights on Hocotate. It is highly possible that glowstems could be a relic of some unknown civilization beyond the scope of our imagination.

Louie's notes

Inedible. Known effects include uncontrollable episodes of impromptu break dancing.
