|Ive got a new batch of
Amorph. Titanum seeds on the go, but one of them seems to be missing the

Its had the
same light levels as the others, grown in the same place, not the
biggest and not the smallest, nor the first or last in its batch to open
Its just not going green (like the one behind it

any clues, will it die, or will it keep growing in this mutated
