A sport, or mutation, represents a chance shift in the genetic makeup of a
plant.  Theory suggests that mutations occur randomly with respect to which
genes they affect (although some experiments suggest that this is not always
the case).  There would seem to be no reason why a gene affecting plant
stature could not undergo mutation and perhaps produce a miniature plant.

    I know the plants can sport a different color flower or leaf, but
can they sport a miniature plant off a normal sized one?
