The Burgeoning Spiderwort is a plant in Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3 that produces the berries needed to make Ultra-Spicy and Ultra-Bitter sprays. Each plant of this species can hold up to five berries, though not always the same kind of berry. They are found in the Awakening Wood, Perplexing Pool, and Wistful Wild in Pikmin 2, and the Tropical Wilds, Garden of Hope, Distant Tundra, and Twilight River areas in Pikmin 3. They do not grow in the Valley of Repose, for they cannot survive in the bitter cold climate.
In Pikmin 2, Ravenous Whiskerpillars can appear in their vicinity, as well as a type of mold that shows up and keeps the plants from growing. The berries can be harvested rather quickly with a medium-large group of Pikmin, but will not drop any berries with a small amount of Pikmin, as they get easily exhausted, give up, and drop off. Most Burgeoning Spiderworts regrow berries after being harvested 5 times each day, and usually right after all berries have been removed. This plant will bobble up and down after losing its berries, and after it does this 100 times, new berries will grow.
There are two Spiderworts a short walk away from the landing site, which both produce red berries. If looked at on a map, a player can see that they are found where you land in the Forest of Hope in the first game. In this area two Ravenous Whiskerpillars appear. They will climb up the stem and eat the berries, so attack them when they come out. They can't hurt Pikmin, and the berries will grow back. A mold may also appear here. If it does, attack the bulbous structure with Pikmin and it will eventually fall apart.
There is one near the area where the Iridescent Flint Beetle is, but it does not appear until Day 11. It is on a ledge and only produces red berries.
There is a final one near the entrance to the Bulblax Kingdom. To make reaching it easier, use blues to destroy the water gate behind the landing area. Have them attack the drain there and the water will disappear. Now walk up the slope here. Take a right next to the giant stump and the berry-bearing plant will be in view (Pikmin will take the berries over the ledge so don't worry about their safety). It only produces purple berries.
There are two near the treasure Gherkin Gate, both of which produce purple berries. A Fiery Blowhog and Swooping Snitchbug hang around here, as well as three Ravenous Whiskerpillars and the occasional mold.
Near the path to the entrance of the Hole of Heroes, there is a large field with the most known in one area: three of the specified plant. All of them produce both kinds of berries. There are three Whiskerpillars here and a mold will cover each individual plant. A Fiery Blowhog and a Watery Blowhog keep watch over the molds.
