Seedlings are items in Pikmin Bloom that grow into Pikmin. They are mainly found on expeditions, but some are gifted to the player by the game for leveling up, and rarely, Pikmin pick them up as the player walks around, similarly to how Pikmin pick up small fruits. Once found, they can be put into a slot in the Planter Pack, where they will start growing. After walking a certain number of steps with the seedling in a slot, it can be plucked, which will add one new Pikmin into the player's collection. A player can store up to 30 seedlings, though this limit can be raised through in-app purchases. It is possible to get rid of seedlings without growing them by pressing the "Recycle" button while viewing a seedling's information page.
There are different types of seedlings, corresponding to the different types of Pikmin, with different numbers of steps required to grow them into a Pikmin.
