    if it helps, the leaves fold in half and close on the evening??

    Is it a climber, bush or trailer?

    Some sort of melon perhaps-when you say you found it in your suitcase where had you been?

    it could have been from cyprus, maldives or florida. i'm really not sure!! i remember having it in my case for the last few years and then finally thought i'd grow it. all i know is what i've put and that the leaves fold down the middle and fully close every evening. the other thing is that it's a very strong/stiff sappling. the plant is at the moment only an inch tall. i've tried googling the picture to no avail. I keep trying to rack my brain of when i put it in my case.

    It looks like Amicia zygomeris- Chrisopher Lloyd liked them apparently

    That's great thank you! That certainly looks like it. I can now sleep at at nightimage.

    Almost anyway!!!!! I piked up a couple of seeds in Cyprus that were black with a with (sleep mask) shape on and they are growing in the same pot. Any clues? I'll post a picture
