At first I thought this was the witch hazel seeds I planted sprouting but now I see it's something else. But I don't know what.

Anyone recognize this?

It looks like the weedy Acalypha gracilens.

Oh, here you go Christine, here is one of your photos from 2012. Maybe that's grandma. You can start a family photo album for them! Hilarious!


(Is it just me or does this seem to be the most asked-about genus on the Plant ID forum?)

Oh man! Another plant that I already have in the database and I'm asking for identification! *Blush* Hilarious!

Thank you, Danita!! I guess my old memory needs some cleaning out! Too many plants to keep up with these days. Ha!
