Default Help identifying plant.




I bought these tomato seed from the Ukraine on eBay and this is what grew. Can anybody identify what this is? I don't see any weeds around here that look this. I'm worried this is some sort of invasive species.

Thanks

For some reason the links only show up when I'm logged in. I did follow the linked instructions. This time I just copied the links directly into the post.

Don't recognize this plant, but personally I wouldn't put any trust in buying anything from the Ukraine. Good luck with finding out what it is.

I bought 17 different kind of seeds and everything else turned out to be what they said. It might be me raising weeds instead of seeds but I don't see anything else like it around here and its a big plant.

Well, that's interesting, at least. Definitely not a tomato! I've never seen a plant that looks like that in my life, I have no idea what it is. Sorry.

It's Bidens frondosa or Devil's beggar tick. Just a local weed. Thanks

Oh - do you mean the tomato seeds never came up at all, and this weed showed up voluntarily? That sort of thing has happened to me before - very confusing at first.
