These three seedlings grew from a large, hard, dark brown spikey seed. I was told this plant can grow to three feet tall. Any ideas? Thanks

They could be Castor Beans. They can grow to be 15 feet tall.

The seed to this plant was about 3/4 of an inch. Spikes, not smooth at all. I'm trying to get another seed to photograph.

It's a castor bean. The spikey things are seed pods, the seeds are in the pods. I believe I already answered this, maybe you have it on a different forum too. The seed and all parts of the plant are poisonous. Pretty though.

Ha. I thought the seed was the fuzzy pod. I didn't realize the smooth castor bean was inside. I just pushed the dark pod into the soil. Thanks.
