My son brought me a small plant from school for mothers day. He grew it himself. But I have no idea what kind of plant it is, and my son is 3, so he doesn't really know either, or he won't tell me. If someone could help me out because I'm not sure how to take care of it Like its special needs. I've been watering it and keeping it by the window and its grown a lot but it looks floppy so I put a sick in the dirt and tied it up a bit. I'm really curious to know what it is. Thanks in advance!

It's a pea of some kind, I believe.

looks like a pea, could be a sweet pea. Pot it up in a bigger pot, give it a support to climb and put it outside in the sun, keep it watered and see what you get! I think that's so cute.

Sweet Pea as in Lathyrus odoratus NOT Sweet Pea as in Pisum sativum, ie this one is NOT the edible vegetable. They (looks as if you have more than one) need to be outside and in a bigger pot. Plenty of water and something to climb like some twiggy prunings.

Teachers seem to have a propensity to giving out confusing plants! See this saga.....
