House Plants/Balcony Plant Identification


Unidentified plants
Unidentified plants  

After returning from a 2 week holiday, I found this plant that had sprouted from the flower pots on my balcony. I live in Graz, in the south of Austria.

I wonder would if you would be able to identify for me? As I said it grew in a matter of weeks, and there doesn't seem to be any identical plants growing in the garden behind my balcony.

Many thanks!

It looks like a Nasturtium.
It's hard to tell without flowers...Flowering plants are identified by the structure of their flowers...Look at pictures on the internet by putting Nasturtium in the search engine and compare it to your plant...
Good luck...Let me know what you think...
