Planted lots of seeds this year, no tags on any of them anymore thanks to a certain 4 legged beastie. LOL I have a picture of our pup sitting on one of my tags..the brat! Sure would like to know what I'm growing here. Thanks!
SOLVED: From Aimee or Kay Jones
I DO have all my seedlings under a laurel oak but the leaves are nothing like this. I also have live oak whose seedlings aren't the same. 3 of these plants grew and are now in full sun, doing well. What type of oak are you thinking of? And thanks!
Must be from Kay, I don't recognize it. But it could also be something I sent that had been sent to me. After surgery, I didn't think I would ever use up all the seeds I had, and was mailing them out left and right so they wouldn't die or dry up. Keep us posted, I might want some!
They must be changelings! LOL I have found and gone through my "seeds sown" list. None match the leaves of this plant and I sure didn't plant any acorns! *G* What type of oak are y'all thinking of?? We don't have many native oaks here and all have small leaves, nothing like this.
Looks like Pin Oak to me also.
Look at the base of the leaf of this and all the broader leafed oaks, the base lobe (?)is narrower then flares out to the next lobe while my plant (leaf) has a broad base to start with. I went thru all of the oaks at TAMU website and can't find any matches. It also doesn't have the waxy, glossy look of an oak, but isn't "soft and droopy" like the Sweet Gum. I'm so confused!! lol
I have sweetgum trees - definitely not that. I sure wish I didn't have them. Brenda
Leaves are similar to one of the Japanese maple seedlings that I got from my sister-no idea of the variety.
I sent you papaya tree seeds, so maybe that's what it is. It looks like the leaves of the papaya I grew from seed last year.
Floridian, You have a very healthy looking Papaya growing there. I have one in my green house now about 2 1/2ft tall. They need to be protected from the cold. Mine doesn`t have time to bear fruit before it gets cold so I am going to leave it in there until spring.
see carica papaya on this url for how the seedling look like... http://theseedsite.co.uk/db5.html

Okay, the future DH (and papaya tree lover) agrees that it is most likely a baby papaya. Thank you all for your help, it's been fun!
