Lapis Lazuli Candypop Buds are blue Candypop Buds found in the canonical series. When non-Blue Pikmin are thrown into the Crimson Candypop Bud, they change into Blue Pikmin. They are named after a rare deep-blue semi-precious stone called lapis lazuli.


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 plants 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!

The Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud appears in Pikmin 251. Its behavior is unchanged from Pikmin 2.


Olimar's observations

Out of the three primary colored Candypop Buds, these are probably the most helpful, especially on those caves where we just barely don't have enough Blue Pikmin to lift something through the water. It sometimes really seems like these flowers have a mind of their own, and know where to show up to be the most useful. Perhaps their connection to the Pikmin family is stronger than I once suspected.

There are much less of these than Pikmin 2, not that it matters as Candypop Buds are only semi-useful after the first half of the game.

Lapis Lazuli Candypop Buds can be found distributed throughout the Marsh Territory. They can be found in groups of two to three. Each of them can transform ten Pikmin into Blue Pikmin if they are not already that color. After changing ten non-Blue Pikmin, the Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud will wilt and disappear. They regenerate every seven days.
