Notes:

I own two cats and give them catnip on occasion, but one day, I notice all these little black seeds in the tray I place it in. Being a gardener, I took a few, germinated them, and after a month, I put them outside. One grew into catnip. The other one.. Well, as you can see, it is not catnip. No flowers despite its impressive size. Any ideas? I live in Louisville, KY and it seems to absolutely love the sunlight and bi-weekly watering in this hot humid weather.

    I’m not really sure but here’s is the link to the Chinese kale/Chinese broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra) seeds & leaves images to compare to yours. The leaves on your plant do look like some thing in the Brassicaceae (mustard/cabbage family). But I’m only speculating. Best wishes! https://www.google.com/search?q=images+chinese+kale%27s+seeds&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi21oKSs4rPAhUBgj4KHT-MCUIQ7AkILA&biw=1920&bih=909#imgrc=urqQJ2grf_A8RM%3A
