I bought this plant at an an auction last October. The owner called it a Boya plant. It sends out long tendrils with asparagus fern - like leaves which have been trying to climb my window and also reach my other plants! I was told that the "bulb" at the base will eventually split or peel back layers like an onion and there will be baby bulbs inside. In fact said owner auctioned off babies before this mother plant was sold. I googled Boya plant and all I got was that Boya was an area of Australia! Any help appreciated!
