The Flower Garden Bulborb is a grub-dog in Pikmin: The Huge Debt. It has white skin, pink spots on its backside, and Margarets on top of its body. While initially docile and unwilling to defend itself, a Flower Garden Bulborb becomes hostile upon the death of its pet chrysanthemum, which is often a Creeping Chrysanthemum, and begin eating Pikmin and shaking off those attacking it. Flower Garden Bulborbs passively fight off Flower Munchers and many elemental creatures, excluding those that use water. They also take no action against fellow grub-dogs or creatures that are plants.

It seems like we're going to have to deal with this flowery fiend... – The ship, upon discovering the Flower Garden Bulborb

The Flower Garden Bulborb is a new species of grub-dog that appears in Pikmin: Pitstop. They resemble an adult bulborb in size and maturity, having a white-colored rump with yellow spots, a beige snout with nostrils and fangs, and two eyestalks supporting eyes with white sclerae and green pupils. The grub-dog walks around on two frail legs with two claws on each foot.

The Flower Garden Bulborb can be found sleeping during the day. It will always be found around fields of numerous flowers, which may be accompanied by flitterbies as well. The Flower Garden Bulborb can be awoken in a few ways, such as if damaged, an enemy or Pikmin runs into it, or it hears an explosion nearby. However, the most common way of waking up a Flower Garden Bulborb is by disturbing the flower patches near the bulborb, and it will suddenly awake from its slumber and become extremely aggressive. This also means that there is no hiding from it in any plants, as the Flower Garden Bulborb will know that Pikmin are inside the flora. The bulborb is extremely aggressive and will eat numerous Pikmin with each bite. If there are no Pikmin in its territory, or if there are no plants being disturbed, it will go back to sleep.

The Flower Garden Bulborb can be very dangerous to approach, considering there are always plants around it to set it off. Attacking the backside of the grub-dog with Pikmin is a good strategy, as it cannot bite from back there. Throwing Pikmin at the bulborb's eystalks will stun it and cause it to release any Pikmin it has in its jaws.

Louie's notes

This grub-dog beast was in my way of the crates, so I sent my Pikmin to take it down. It likes its flowers, so maybe it'll taste better if I cook it in a pan of them...

Overlord’s insight

This animal's favorite food is flowers and fauna; it's a herbivore, as opposed to virtually all other grub-dogs of its kind. Considering how crucial it is to its diet, the bulborb has perfectly memorized the sound of disturbed leaves and flowers. When anything rustles them, this bulborb immediately awakens to scare away the smaller herbivores. Maybe I could use this guy to scare away Leafcutter Sheargrubs from my most valuable flowers... if it doesn't eat them itself.
