Looks like an oak to me.

It does and that was my first thought. But it is a weird shape. Maybe it is three or four little oak babies jammed in a pot? But I also think there is a vining plant with leaves that look like that, whose name I can't think of... :?: :?:

It could be an Oaked Leaf Hydrangea RB...but the leaves still look too Oaky to me.

I was thinking there's an herbaceous weed that looks kind of like that, but I can't think of the name. :?

What is te expectation? Is it supposed to BE something, or was this potted up because it was interesting (or it grew unexpectedly in this pot)? It's a yogurt container right? What size is it? I can't decipher the numbers. :roll: (is it 750 ml i.e. 3 cups?)

the leaves look verry oaky, but those stems sure seem thick and succulent and decidedly non-oaky. i don't have an answer, other than not thinking it's oak.

Many thanks for your replies.

This grew in a tray where I was germinating Amaranths. This seedling looked different, and I just thought why not let it grow a bit!

I'm no pro, and though it's hard to tell from the picture, it does have a weed/vine like appearance. The plant is 6" tall, it is sloped over to it's side, and has grown this size in about 2 weeks. It sits in a 750ml yogourt container.

I'll grow a bit more and see what comes out of it!

Definitely not an oak tree if it is growing that fast! Something herbaceous and weedy, probably vining.
