There isn't much to this plant yet...just a set of first leaves and a set of true leaves. It would be great to have an ID so that i would know whether to pull it up or nurture it. There is something familiar about this plant to me ghosting around my memory banks but i just can't place it. Any ideas?

Thank you vn...it doesn't appear to me to be Ipomoea aquatica. Firstly it is not growing in an aquatic environment (swamp,really wet, etc) and secondly, the true leaves of my plant have three leaves per stem and i don't see this in any of the I.a. photos i've looked at. The first leaves here appear to be like those of the Ipomoea a. but the true leaves do not. Thank you for your idea though :-D

I saw the raindrops on the leaves I thought it is somewhere near the vicinity of the swamp area. One of the leaves fools me to think that it is similar to Ipomoea that I had already photographed.

Someone will come along to id it for you.

I'm not sure what it is, but it looks like something in Fabaceae / Leguminosae.

no raindrops vn...i had just watered the garden when i decided to take a photo for the ID forum :-D. maybe i should let it grow and try again later. it is pretty small.

i agree Tom that it looks like something in the Fab/Leg families. I guess i'll let it grow for awhile longer.
