Hi Yoda

The plant was a climber/ creeper, there was quite a lot of them all around Tamboti.

As a tentative ID, I would say some sort of Dioscorea. Maybe sylvatica, or rupicola?

Isinkwe take a look at Ipomoea obscura. It was not be the one you have here, but the leaf shape looks very close to the Ipomoea genus

Yup, it could be this too I guess.
A flower would be helpful.

Thank you Ross and Yoda for your help :thumbs_up:
What I am learning from you both is to take more note of the plants that I photograph, a few more details and pictures,
like Yoda pointed out, "A flower will be helpful"
Point taken and lesson learned Yoda, Thank you :thumbs_up: Will certainly be more aware in the future.

isinkwe,
All pieces of the puzzle! :thumbs_up:

Do you recall seeing flowers?
If so,
Were they large and colourful (Ipomoea)
Or small, greenish and obscure (Dioscorea)

Many thanks for your help with those two, NL :thumbs_up: Is candles an alien invader or just not considered a fynbos plant (I couldn't find it in my field guide)?

Here's another one I need help with, seen at Strandfontein on 21 June 2012.

I am also looking for the name of these plants.

not sure if it is some type of fruit perhaps?? It seemed to resemble a type of melon. :hmz:
We saw it in the Shingwetzi area, June 2014.
