Q.Unknown Plant

Zone Henderson NV (#7) | Anonymous added on August 7, 2021 | Answered

I live in Henderson NV and grow many vegetables and fruit vertically in large outdoor planters with much care and good commercial soils, nutrients and drainage. I planted two fresh, dried cantaloupe seeds in each planter and, as vines began climbing from two, the third sprouted and is growing this small, upright and unknown plant (photos attached). I have no idea what it might be but I sure would like some advice from someone who does. Thank you very much.

There are so many things that resemble this, unfortunately. It looks to be in the Solanaceae family, which is quite broad. You can take samples to your local extension service, and they may be of service. This will help you to find the closest to you:
