OK my fellow garden taggers I need everyones opinion. This is a NEW bat growing. Cool right I dunno. So should I let it grow and prolly have 2 smaller bats or snip it and transfer the energy. But if I do that it just might force another to grow. Snip or not to snip help me GTers.

Thus plant is new to me I don't anything about how it grows, but I know this is not a leaf. Plant may be to young yet to fully develope the flower but this may grow to be the first flower. I'm so excited how cool.

I'd move him right along to the garbage. Where there is one there are many hiding. Will eat holes in plant. Can google how to make a slug trap.
