I'm trying to ID this plant grown from unknown seeds. I don't have any knowledge on the origin of the seeds or the plants native range.

Any ideas on the plants Family or Genus would also be appreciated.

Thanks, Kaldis

It is more likely to be S. americanum. Hopefully this is what you were looking for.

I had a plant biologist confirm that the plant is in the Solanaceae (nightshade) family, and the genus Solanum. I was told that it is most likely not S. americanum...

the plant does have a purple stem and some purple coloration developing on a few leaves. Stems and leaves are covered with short hairs.

Does anyone have an idea what nightshade species this is?
