I forgot about some Himalayan spruce (Picea smithiana) while they were being stratified. They were covered in mold when I found them after a year. I planted them thick thinking most would not come up.
This one came up with white needles and a red stem. It came up on the same day as the rest and received the same light and water.
I was wondering if it could be albino or unable to respond to light or something? I have never heard of this and couldnt find it on the internet.

    Albino plants are not uncommon, but… lacking in chlorophyll generally means that the seedling isn’t able to grow…
