I got this plant sprouting in my window box this spring. Starting from a single seed, it has grown into an impressive array of branching climbing vines, reaching 6 feet tall. The stem turned red as it matured. The most awesome feature of this plant is that the stem is covered in micro hooks that cling to everything. I've seen it cling to a paint on a metal gutter pipe I can think of these hooks as velcro or gecko feet.
Can someone help me identify this plant?
