Default The Ugly Duckling

Something strange happened to me. Last March I sowed some of the billions seeds I received from some generous members of this forum. Most of them germinated. There was this one seedling that was growing well. The stem was thick and it had already sprouted its cotyledons. A few days after, all other seedlings already had their true leaves, but this one didn’t develope any. The cotyledons kept growing and became huge and thick but that’s all I got from it. I’ve placed it on the kitchen counter and I haven’t given it a single drop of water in about two weeks.
This monster is still alive.
I’ve named this plant “The Ugly Duckling”, but maybe “Texas Longhorn” would have been a more appropriate nickname.

Has anything like that ever happened to you?
