First off I’m very new to planting. I started last year and I live in an apartment so they are all in pots. I have mostly herbs and a few chili plants, and a cactus. I have a little porch where I can set them up come spring. About a week or two ago I noticed a strange sprouting in one of my plants. It kind of looks like pine needles but I have no way of knowing. I don’t mind growing it and planting when I have my own house but I don’t want to be rowing a weed or something like that. Any advice would be helpful.
That does look like a pine tree. Sometimes seedlings from the cypress family start out with those pine-like needles, but then show their scaly leaves as soon as they continue to grow. If the new needles continue to look pine-like, then it'll be a pine tree.
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
