I just sprouted this & lost the tag of the name. Is this a MG? If so, which one?

Judy, can you make the pics larger? Hard to see them with the writing over them.

I really can't remember. I've /n doing a lot of seed trading all winter. If I can get it to bloom, I believe it will be easier to ID this plant. All I can remember is that I had 3 seeds & one came up.


Do you think it is this MG? Ipomoea ternifolia

Judy I was informed that it
"looks to be Ipomoea platensis , especially if it starts to produce more basal lobes to equal about 7 or more"

A flower always helps with an ID too. Looking foward to seeing one!

Do you think this could be Merremia tuberosa because the vine is purple?

Possibly... I think at this point we need to see the flower or more mature leaves.
