I adopted this Spruce (or what I think is a Spruce) from a friend who bought it at Home Depot during Christmas time, then didn't want it after Christmas. It's in a ~1 gallon container and has been on my balcony next to a potted Long Leaf Pine.

This past Spring it started growing these long pine needles (or what looks to be long pine needles). But that doesn't make any sense to me since its genetic makeup is already written.

I've researched it online without luck.

Is this actually a Spruce? Do Spruce normally grow these long needles among their small needles? If not, what is happening to this poor little unwanted freak plant? lol.

Thank you,
