Default complete noob question

ok, less than a month ago I went to a fishing trip, and a friend showed me something that was supposed to be a wild hop plant. there were no hops on it because, like he said, it was to early in these climates.

anyway, I picked a piece of a plant and brought it home. put it in a glass jar untill it started to grow new leaves, and then removed it into flower pot on my balcony.

this grows like crazy, but I'm worried I have a trojan horse in my house

so, is this a hop plant?

Nope. Is it a link to a photo sharing website (flikr, etc)? My employer's firewall blocks a number of those and I can't see them.

Yep, it's a hop plant. And yep, it's also a trojan horse.

I see the pic in this thread BTW

I'll put it directly in here then. Looks like hops to me, but what LGI said is also true... it's a Trojan Horse in that you have no idea what properties the hops will have at all (flavor, aroma, bitterness).
