    PLANTS GENERALLY DO START OUT SMALL AND GET BIGGER.

    UNLESS THEY DIE.

    A PHOTO WOULD HELP ENORMOUSLY. UNLESS WE ARE GOING TO PLAY A QUESTION AND ANSWER GAME ALL DAY.

    To upload a photo start with the camera icon ... if the photo doesn't upload try reducing the size ... it usually works image

    Intrigued to see your plant ...........

    Has it ever had any flowers? Can you describe them if it has.

    What was it that attracted you to pick up a random plant from the pavement and repot it every year. If no one can help identify it, then just enjoy that what you are nurturing.

  • With out a picture of the flowers it's hard to say but the leaves resemble the leaves on my Angles Trumpet plants . They turn yellow and fall off if given too much water too.

    Barefoot ... I'm thinking Brugmansia too ............. what a wonderful find by Martin if that's what it is.  image

    That foliage to me resembles a Phytolacca (esculenta???) . I have P.americana which looks 99% similar .

    They are so easy from seed , maybe a bird-dropping ? The succulent juicy fruits are probably irresistible to them .

    My brugmansias have more pointy leaves.

    Can we see the entire plant in its pot?

    Hi Martin 188, if the flowers look like the ones in the picture, its definitely a brugmansia plant. Be careful when handling ,its a poisonous plant. All parts of the  plant are toxic. I use to feed mine at least twice a week with tomato feed.
