I discovered this little seedling today. Its so cute. I guess its a Jatropha podagrica. Anyone else have an idea? I think I had one that bloomed last year but I don't remember any seed pods.

I guess this must be the parent to my seedling. Its blooming again. I will pay attention and see if any seeds are produced.

I added this picture of my Jatropha podagrica on another thread and the leaves are shaped differently. I wonder if it is the same plant? I'd love to have the orange flowers.

I think its the same. They seem to have a lot of variation in leaf shape.

Pinkish red is good too! Any flower, any color is fine with me.

They sure do get big beautiful leaves! This is the leaf I first showed earlier in this thread. It has sure grown. The tweezers is for comparison.

And this is a newer leaf that is taking the shape like helen's. Hers has that beautiful rim of purple and a flower and maybe mine is not in enough sun. I'm so afraid if I put it in any direct sun it will fry the leaves. With current temps of 111 and only 4% humidity it just fries so many plants, even cacti!

Nancy,
Great looking leaf!
I was trying to imagine the tweezers sitting astride the top of the leaf...
