I recently purchased a green plant and found another plan growing inside of the pot, which looks like a starfish. I have attached a photograph of the rogue plant. Can you please identify the plant and let me know whether it will harm the green plant (main plant)?
Metrosideros, is there something leading you to believe there is more than one plant pictured?
Looks like some sort of blooming palm to me. I don't know palms well, so I'll leave it to others to get more specific.
It looks like the flower structure of a Chamadorea elegans to me.
I'm no palm expert either, just a guess.
A mature Palm will flower repeatedly and produce much fruit, when it is healthy!
