Getting the Flower[edit]

How do you get the pikmin flower? Adam 986.

Um, well, it's a real flower, so...any place you might find flowers. Plant nurseries and and things.... I don't know if they actually cultivate these for sale, but you would be able to find out more by searching online. —Jimbo Jambo
They were sold alot in 2002 they are rare now... I suppose you could breed your own... But that would be difficult... I'm ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ And I approve this message.
Well that depends on how good a breeder you are and what flower you start with, though the chances of you actually being able to come up with the exact same species are, well, astronomical. Speaking of which, I wonder what kind of flower they did start with. —Jimbo Jambo
Hmmm... according to Wikipedia it isn't even related to any flowers in the Bacopa family... I'm ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ And I approve this message.


Let me get this straight, this flower was artificially made to look like the Pikmin flower? As in, it didn't exist before, and it was made with the Pikmins' flower design in mind? {EspyoT} 12:13, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

Yep. I added a reference. I couldn't find anywhere offering it for sale (it's meant to be by 'Proven Winners' and this is all they have on their website), but I did find out it's classed as a figwort. Heh. GP

Calling the flowers ingame "Chaenostoma cordatum"[edit]

The page consistently treats the flowers that appear in-game as literally being Chaenostoma cordatum. This, I feel, is not something verifiably true, and shouldn't be included. Not only was the Chaenostoma cordatum bred to promote Pikmin during its launch (how can Pikmin be based on a flower that was specifically bred to resemble them?), but the recent interview shows concept art of Pikmin with different flowers, the one closest resembling the final being thr feverfew, not the cordatum. I think the page needs to be heavily rewritten to focus on the actual real-world flower that is called Chaenostoma cordatum, and not the stylized generic flowers they vaugely resemble.--PopitTart (talk) 00:33, October 1, 2023 (EDT)
