Not sure where to put this, hope it’s ok in a blog.
Trying to figure out what type of plant this is.
I’m pretty sure it’s a type of weed but IDK.
Any help appreciated.

^It grew this high in about 2 months^

^This leaf is 24” wide^

Nobody Knows?
Here is some more info that may help.
The stalk is hairy and the underside of the leaves are real sticky to the touch.
The top side of the leaf has an “almost” velvet feel to them.
Oh, and bugs seem to like to eat it.

I don’t recognize it. I hope you can figure out what it is.

Your name’s not “Jack” is it .... as in Jack and the bean stock?

I would be leaving it for a while longer, just to see what it does. One can always cull it in the coming late fall. I really am curious as to what it might be. It certainly is a conversation piece.

LOL, It might be. This thing certainly looks like a bean stock. I’ll let it go a while longer. ;)
Thanks JR

Are there buds yet? I was wondering if it is a sunflower?

Iwud4u, yes, your right. It’s a weed. I’ve seen it growing at the edge of farmer’s cornfields. Don’t let it go to seed.

Thanks jroot, No buds yet, but it is starting to sprout out from in between the branches. I don’t think it’s a sunflower, but thanks for thinking about it.

Thanks Iris, If it is a weed, then I guess I better pull it. (Maybe I should let it go to seed) With this darn plant I could plant them all around the house and have a wind break in 2 months. LOL

Here it is at present.

That’s OK, knowing it’s a weed is good enough.
Thanks

I cut it down and dissected a portion of the stem.
I was surprised to see that it looks like bamboo. Same Family maybe??

What a great similarity to bamboo! This is a good clue to identify the plant. Let us try. Don’t cut it further. Let it grow more till it flowers.

Thanks for the interest Sharad,

I cut the plant down and pulled the roots, the plant is no more. I was going to let it go and see if it flowered but we had some bad winds and it pretty much blew off or broke most of the (hollow) branches.

New Update…LOL
I thought when I pulled it up the 1 pc of root that I didn’t get would die.

WRONG….....

Looks like I got a new plant sprouting up out of that pc of root.
