I had some space to fill in the garden so i planted "cat grass" to my understanding it is supposed to be wheat, and or barley, and or oats? But about half the plants are white.. This happened when it was planted in a plant pot too. What would this plant be? It looks like a cereal crop, just white instead of green.

TIA

Don't know. From what I've read it's cereal grains, plus that's all the seeds look like

I grew and harvested thousands of acres of wheat, barley, oats, etc

 

What you are dealing with is a - sick plant!!   :tapping_fingers:

 

It could be anything, it just produced no chlorophyll, it ain't long for this world!!  :boo_hoo:

Read about that. Never had this problem in any of our crops or heard of anyone's crops having it

Should I kill it off, or leave it grow?

Looks like the few plants that were green to start with, are oats and are starting to make heads.
The plants that were white now have green and white striped leaves but aren't quite making heads yet.
It should all have heads in a week or so
