"Orticia Blooms" is the first segment of the 7th Season 5 episode of PJ Masks.
When an experiment goes wrong, Romeo tries to turn it to his advantage.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Orticia Blooms":
Romeo is at the museum to try and get inspiration for his next evil scheme. He comes across an ancient seed, discovered 3,000 years ago in a jungle, and decides to hatch it. He takes the seed to the Park, drips it in some chemicals and zaps it with an evil energy beam. It works; the seed grows into a huge venus flytrap, and from this plant emerges Orticia, a plant-girl. Afterwards, the plant shrivels back into the seed, which Orticia uses to instantly grow a colossal plant. Romeo reveals himself and tries to order Orticia to obey him, but when he picks a leaf from one of the plants, Orticia gets mad and chases him away by sicking a vine onto him. This inspires Romeo to lure the PJ Masks to Orticia in hopes she will fight and defeat them.
The following day, Connor, Amaya and Greg find that the park has been closed off for the public because of a dangerous plant. They decide to investigate the matter that night. While the 3 kids gather in HQ as the PJ Masks, Romeo is already at Orticia's garden and deliberately angers her by threatening to damage her plant with a gardening trowel. To his delight, the PJ Masks show up, and just like Romeo hoped, they get in trouble with Orticia too. She attacks the PJs and traps them in vines which even Gekko can't break. Romeo shows up to gloat at the captured PJ Masks how Orticia was his creation, but Orticia traps him in a vine too.
The PJs try to convince Romeo to help them now that they are all in this mess together, but Romeo refuses. The PJs don't take no for an answer and rope Romeo into a plan to get ahold of the gardening trowel Romeo threatened to use earlier. With the trowel, the PJs cut the vine and free themselves and Romeo. Romeo immediately turns on the heroes again and zaps them with a ray gun. When Orticia discovers the kids escaped, she traps Romeo in a venus flytrap. When Orticia is gone again, the PJs sneak onto the venus flytrap. Now that he has no other option, Romeo tells the PJs about the seed that Orticia used to grow her plant. Owlette is able to locate the seed with her Owl Eyes. Orticia attempts to stop the PJs, but Gekko manages to reach the seed and pull it out of the ground. The seed instantly withers and vanishes, and the plant along with it. All that remains is a tiny venus flytrap, which the PJs take with them to HQ. Orticia leaves and is determined to come back to grow more plants. Romeo also leaves and makes it clear that this one incident won't mean he is going to give up on being a villain. With that out of the way, the team shouts their victory phrase.
