Shoots appear to be immature trees, but at this stage of growth, the exact species cannot be identified. This plant may only be found on land in few places, mainly in the Perplexing Pool, but is also found in clusters on various cave sublevels. They do not affect gameplay, as they are just for scenery. Rivaled by the Foxtail, they are quite possibly the tallest plant which can be interacted with in Pikmin 2.
"This is a young shoot of some kind, but what kind of tree species does it belong to? What shape will it take when it matures and grows to full height? Unfortunately, we are only able to obtain information from our portable scanners on a select few of the countless number of species we've encountered. But even if our expedition yields only brief observations on the life we encounter, it will still provide a better understanding of this bizarre planet."
"Inedible. And yet strangely delicious."

"Among the most common types of foliage are the shoots. They offer splendid atmosphere in often-hostile surroundings."
