Tiny Silver Queen pup--new sport?
I was looking over my sans yesterday. My Silver Queen was potted a little too deep, so I thought I'd unpot it and lift it. I was afraid of crown rot especially in the winter time. I had noticed this small pup when I purchased the plant last spring. It was one or two small leaves then. The pup has grown a couple more leaves since then. They appear to be mature leaves 2" tall at the most. I decided to remove the pup and pot it by itself.
This plant grew a couple of full-sized pups over the summer, so this dwarf does not appear to be the way pups develop normally on this plant. What does everyone think?
