Some kind of a gourd?

sophieraJune 19, 2014

A mysterious plant sprouted in my pot a long time ago. I let it grow to see what it is.

And to my surprise it's some kind of a spindly tendril plant!
It had two tiny bulbs at the base of the leaves. I remember seeing this plant as a herb but then I didn't read it in detail.

Not like any gourd I ever saw. Ever seen it bloom?

Nope, it's still too young to bloom.

Orbs are extra-floral nectaries and serve as egg mimics.

Here is a link that might be useful: Passiflora extrafloral-nectaries

Mandevilla twines, no tendrils.
