Can anyone help us ID this plant?
My in-laws gave us a cutting of this plant that belonged to my father-in-laws parents. It started off in the spring with only two leaves and by November it was a couple feet across.
The leaves are broad and five pointed. Each leaf comes off its own stem that is green and covered in red/crimson hairs.
We have moved it around and found that it does not like direct sun but flourishes in shade and high temps.
No one in the family knows where the plant came from; its just always been in the basement. We appreciate everyone's help!
