This showed up in the pot of my indoor plant. I occasionally put seeds from fruit I ate, but did not keep track. It is about a year old.

It looks like Citrus. Reminds me of my Key Lime I grew from seed. If I remember correctly, Limes, Lemons, Grapefruit and Oranges have thorns on their stems.

I agree that it is some type of citrus; what kind(s) have you been eating?

Hurray! What a cool surprise! It definitely looks like a Citrus seedling and as Anne stated, many citrus trees do have thorns!

Thanks everyone! I have been wondering this for so long. Anybadvice on keeping it alive now? You can tree mail me if you want so to not get off on another rabbit trail. Or I could "ask a question" and we could converse over there.

On the island, I have to hit the seedlings with a systemic or they don't get far because of galls.
