I've got lots of these, grown from seed this winter... any opinions on whether they really are Androsace spinulifera?
I recall from this post that Androsace spinulifera takes on its spiny appearance with the winter resting buds:
The leaves on my plants are slightly toothed and Doreen's were not.
However, I note that these seedlings do look quite similar to the product of the Androsace fedtschenkoi seed that I bought from the same vendor:
Rats! Between the A. fedtschenkoi and whatever this is, if not more of the same, I've got about two dozen not-quite-what-I-had-in-mind Androsace seedlings.... yikes. ;-)
I'd say no -- I have pictures of Androsace spinulifera in the wild in China and your seedling's leaves don't match at all.
