What is this strange creature?! Thank you!:)
Tree? This has been growing on Staten Island, N.Y.
As opposed to your previous post, this one is - clearly - Apparitionius transparentii 'Claude Rains'.
Tempting to think exotic but I'd go with the more common Downloadus incompletesia
Actually, I'm having doubts about it now. It could be Powerfailure wiresdownii var. sandyi?
That or possibly Laptopus dedbaterii var noreaster
Good morning! Thank you growin, and thank you Resin for your help. Much appreciated. Have a good day. :)
I haves looked closely at my pics and the ones given and they are different. The pics given more like spikes while the ones on the tree I took the pic of are wider. Like flat fish scales w a point. Both not the same. Thanks. :)
The width of the leaves varies with the age of the tree and how shaded / sunny a position the individual shoot is in ;-)
Hi Resin! It looks like the one I saw received alot of sunlight. Ill be back that way next month. How old would u say it is? (To get those leaves?) I'm not a fan of sharp critters, but my Father was. Loved cactus so much he grew it from seeds!! :)
