The plant is a vine with leaves that are about 1.5 inches across at the largest area. A pod has recently appeared that my sister says will eventually develop into a flower. The vine can survive cold temps but cannot survive if temp goes below zero degrees F.

    Thanks for sharing the unique personal history of your vine, and when you mentioned your vine came from a “sprig” but not a tuber. It got me thinking yours is the Cuban Ivy and not the Madeira vine.

    My sister discovered this plant in Silver City, New Mexico about 20 years ago and has been able to “keep it going” all these years. She gave me a sprig about 6 months ago, now I have one too!! The flower buds on my plant haven’t developed yet, but she has seen flowers on hers. Hopefully, with the information you provided we can solve the mystery of what it is and it’s origin. Thank you very much!!

    Your vine looks like Madeira vine, Anredera cordifolia, however if the flower spikes are up-turned then it would be Cuban Ivy, Anredera leptostachys (syn A. vesicaria).
