The right plant by Buttoneer,

All photos on this page might be a mis-ID'ed Anredera cordifolia. Then again; I can't really tell the difference... The leaves do, however not look "heart-shaped" like Anredera cordifolia is supposed to do.

After Rikke has taken care of it for half a year, it suddenly, after three years in my care, started to flower.
