I found this growing in an EE Plant start pot in the greenhouse. Do you think it is a volunteer tree, weed or plant??? Any guesses?

Do you have a photo of the stalk? Is it woody or herbaceous?

The individual leaflets and venation remind me of Arisaema but I can't recall any having leaves divided in quite that way....but I'm no Arisaema expert by a long shot! Shrug!

It looks like it could be a Bidens of some variety...and I hope I'm wrong.

Danita, you have it right! your suggestion triggered a memory! I was gifted a small Amorphophallus konjac. It didn't make it through the fall and I thought it was a goner. Now I remember putting a small start of my black taro into that very same pot. I know who will be moving out of the pot soon!! I am so glad to have my Amorphophallus konjac back!! Hurray!

LOL, I know the Amorph's are very popular but I've never grown them. I dislike spiny, thorny plants and stinky plants too.

Of course, Amorphophallus! I thought it looked like an Aroid but my mind was just stuck in the wrong genus.

I'm so glad your little "Lazarus" came back to you! Hurray!
