Anybody know what this guy is? I found him growing wild in northern Florida, if that helps. I think it looks a lot like Xanthosoma sagittifolium, but I don't know if that grows where I found it. PlantID #helpid

It’s an arrowhead vine, and they’re all over Jacksonville, too. I have lots of them popping up around the yard. Some are more variegated. Very hardy here!

And the one you mentioned, the xanthosoma sagittifolium is an elephant ear and also very common around Florida and the south, but it gets really large leaves and these arrowhead vines tend to stay pretty small. If it’s what I think it is. 😊

Syngonium ? May be invasive species ck with local extension office for proper id. Elephant ears are also invasive in Florida.
