This is what happens when you propagate a medusoid euphorbia from a branch/lateral head/snake...
Sometimes it doesnt work

So you are saying that this is a Euphorbia medusa ??

All I did was plant this in the window box.

Its not "euphorbia medusa", but one of the medusoid euphorbias like esculenta and gorgonis and stellata(read up on them)
Its not you. Thats how the plant behaves after propagating. Most end up distorted because the center(central head, core, caudex) is out of whack, and instead has the tissue and behaviors of the side branches of said head(which is lateral and is" programmed" to be lateral)
I saw a great propagation vid on youtube, but a long long time ago.. ill try to find it but no promices
