Scientific name Equestrius vindico
Family Horsetail
Areas Awakening Wood
Caves Hole of Beasts

The Horsetail is a brownish plant that 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.

Horsetails also have a small cameo appearance in the games Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and Super Paper Mario, in which they restored 3 HP and 7 HP respectively, if eaten. Although it is rather unlikely that this is a direct reference to Pikmin, the series may well have inspired the plant's appearance in Paper Mario.


Olimar's Notes

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.

Louie's Notes

Remove and discard the primative, scaly leaves, then blanch the tender stock in a buttery brotch.
