Here are the roots coming from the stem I cut last spring. I thought the rest of the vine would die off and I'd just pull it out.
I'm not sure what that vine is called, but I've seen mustang grapevines do the same thing -- growing roots two feet down from a severed trunk into the soil. That's obviously not a mustang grapevine. I thought I'm mention it though. Apparently, that's not so uncommon a survival technique.
so close there victor, I'm checking family members

This more mature leaf may look like this picture if I fed it and potted it up. It's growing in the back yard somewhat out of control.
The C. rhombifolia looks the closest from what I've seen so far. I think my leaves are thicker, more succulent, though.
I'll leave it open and investigate more. And I'll go check the ones in the back yard, see what's going on.
Thanks victor, for your quick reply.
well, it's going in a pot, I'll feed it and see what happens.
Seeing the bulbs (probably not the correct botanical term) makes me think of Rhoicissus tridentata, Bitter Grape or Bushman's Grape.
I'm still waiting to see any bloom or fruit.
