I planted a spider-plant cutting, in a pot that included some home-made compost. The pot has sprouted 4 tiny seedlings. Can anyone identify them from these pictures?
- If I gently squeeze the leaves, then it has a very strong (bitter?) vegetal smell, somewhat reminiscent of ivy.
- The compost in question is about evenly kitchen waste (so fair amounts of veg seeds/fruit pips) and shredded garden waste (so lots of shredded weeds), so I assume it's one of those.
- The pot plant isn't terribly close to sunlight, so the seedlings are likely to be unusually etiolated.
Last time I had an unexpected seedling in with something else, it turned out to be a sunflower, so I'm relunctant to just throw it away. :)
Any guesses what these are?
