Hello, I would love to have my plant identified so I know how to look after it. It has fur under the leaves and on the stem. Leaves have a spiky edge where the veins end. It was propagated with a clipping that grew roots in water.
Thank You!
Thank you!

creeping euonymous, I believe. I spend a lot of time eradicating that plant from my yard. It will take over if you don't manage it closely.

No not a Euonymus, it's Cissus rhombifolia, aka grape ivy. Being in England you'll be growing it as a houseplant. It's pretty trouble free and can be pruned to keep it in shape. You've done well to root the cutting. Good luck with it.

Looks like Grape Ivy (Cissus alata) to me too. It was popular hanging basket plant at one time but I haven't seen it around in awhile.

Hello, Thank you all so much for getting back to me!!
Some one else had also said to me Grape Ivy (Cissus rhombifolia), but i had thought that maybe the leaves were too different in shape to be the same.
They are shaped like a spear rather than the xmas tree shape of the Grape Ivy. However i am no expert and i am only going by what i see, I feel more sure of my friends opinion now that 2 other people seem to back it up and perhaps the shape of the leaf changes as it grows?

PS i dont know what the acorns do, but i gave 1 to everyone to say thanks!!

UPDATE: I found this image uploaded by plantladylin which completely matches the leaves on my plant! Thank you all so much! WIth out your help i would have been in danger of over watering my plant!
