This is probably too early to try to ID... but any thoughts of what this might be?

Could it be "Jack-in-the-pulpit," Arisaema triphyllum? If so, it is a native plant that likes moist shade and makes a bloom a little similar to a calla lily, but striped kind of green and beige or maroon and green. It usually grows in small colonies.

If you were expecting that you are growing a tropical, I could take another stab at it.

Did you grow it from seed, cutting, root, or rhizome?

If I planted it... I sure don't remember! Laughing
When I took the plants out after winter, the Orchid that was in that pot had died and this had sprung up.
Again... probably too early to try to ID. But I'm sure keeping an eye on it!
Thanks!

Update on the mystery 3-leaf plant that I have been trying to ID.

here's the latest photo of it. Not much change... just bigger.

There's some of this growing near the porch (among the Potato Ivy). It actually "climbed" up the porch.

And here is the size of it's HUGE leaves.

Is this in the philodendren family? Maybe some sort of Ivy?
