Pellet weed family
- Main article: Pellet Posy.
Pellet Posies are important plants in the Pikmin games. They hold a pellet, which can be retrieved after Pikmin attack the plant. The pellet they hold can be of any color of the currently discovered Pikmin types, or it can cycle through the available ones in short intervals. Pellet Posies bearing 1-pellets, 5-pellets, 10-pellets, and 20-pellets exist. After one is destroyed, a stub will grow the next day, and after some in-game hours, it will grow to become a new Pellet Posy.
- Main article: Burgeoning Spiderwort.
Burgeoning Spiderworts are plants that make their first appearance in Pikmin 2. These flowers hold ultra-spicy berries (or ultra-bitter berries—or sometimes both—in Pikmin 2), and will drop them if attacked by Pikmin. Dropped berries can be brought back to the player's ship, which will convert ten of them them into ultra-spicy or Ultra-bitter spray. The Spiderwort will regenerate its berries after a while.
The name of the family might originate from the Japanese name of the Pellet Posy, ペレット草?, which translates to "Pellet Grass".
