I have been looking for over 6 months on the web.. I got this one from my mother and she got it from her sister that lives in Russia. They told me that this little thingy has poisonous leaves and is supposed to become a tree. They also told me the Russian slang name for it, it's "Spitter" but I couldn't find anything on the web.

This is a plant of the family Euphorbiaceae. This is a Euphorbia leuconeura. It is "fired" their seeds far as spitting them. The seeds then germinate in pots with other plants.
