This plant sprouted in the pot of a dead grocery store “palm” after sitting outside for a month or so. This was in the summer in Colorado. I brought it indoors and it grew to about 24″ when I decided to transplant it. I took pictures “just in case”. Well it did die shortly thereafter, but I think its a beautiful plant and want to buy one, or the seeds and don’t have a clue what it is. I don’t think its a houseplant.

    It looks like you hit it pretty much on the head. I’m not surprised that its a weed since it came from nowhere. It must have been in the pot all along because I’ve never seen anything like it here. Thanks for taking the time to identify and communicate that back to me. Your help is greatly appreciated.
