Post #9667066

I'm currently in South Florida (North Miami Beach) and have a volunteer vine that sprouted in a soil filled pot that used to have a Palm Tree growing in it (it was a Parlor Palm, Chamaedora elegans).

The vine has grown quickly and is thriving on my balcony.

I am curious what it is.

The leaves look like smaller, soft maple leafs. The leaves are not tough like an ivy. It's also never given me any rashes so I DON'T believe it's an ivy.

It hasn't shown any signs of sprouting any flowers yet and not sure it will (I've had for about 4 months now).

I keep looking for ways to ID it.

I've included 2 pix (2nd pic is sideways - plant grows upward - not sideways)

Thanks for your input.
