The Horsetail is a plant in Pikmin 2. The plant is brownish and stiffly sticks out of the ground like a post. This hardy plant can survive in soil conditions with few nutrients, but is still very rarely seen, only appearing in the Awakening Wood and underground in the Hole of Beasts. Horsetails, unlike most plants, have retained the primitive method of reproducing via spores.
"This variety of horsetail is prevalent in regions with low nutrient content in the soil. Unlike most other plants, this particular species propagates itself through the release of spores."
"Remove and discard the primitive, scaly leaves, then blanch the tender stock in a buttery broth."

"Much like the foxtails, horsestails are tall and majestic.They thrive in soil that doesn't have enough nutrients for other types of plants."
