Lapis Lazuli Candypop Buds (ルリポンガシグサ?, lit.: "Lapis Lazuli Puffed Grain Weed") are blue Candypop Buds in Pikmin 2. They behave the same as all other Candypop Buds, except when non-Blue Pikmin are thrown in, they will change into Blue Pikmin. If Blue Pikmin are thrown in, they will be reverted to the leaf maturity. These plants are usually found in close proximity to water, and finding them can generally be taken as an indication that Blue Pikmin will be needed.



Olimar's notes

No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits out the same number of blue Pikmin. This family of plant boasts soft, fleshy leaves, the sinewy tendrils of which allow the flower to open and close repeatedly over the course of a day.

Louie's notes

This flower's tough texture makes it unsuitable for salads, but its bright blue hue makes for a grandiose garnish!
