Planted out a number of Astrophytum Asterias Nudum - doing very well too, but one in amongst them looked a bit odd, an continued to grow odd like.
So the question is: is it a weed, or a sport / oddly deformed nudum???

Heres the Pic:



sport?

I'd say it aint an Astro, looks interesting though I would transplant it and see what it does.

Yeah,
just looking at it, the seed is a dark black, not like the astro's - probably a triffid and will eat my whole collection he he

Good idea to repot it - and move it away from everything else!!!!

Wouldn't it be cool if it was a Triffid?
