    I live in Yucatan, Mexico (southeast), and I think I found a Morning Glory plant but Im really not sure. I have been reading a lot about MG and watching pictures but most of them are of the flowers and the plant I found doesnt have a flower (YET! I think they will bloom soon. I have seen the flowers but since the plants dont have flowers yet im not sure if it is the good one).

    I want to try MG so that's why I wanna know, I hope u can help me, Im a rookie :D

    here the pictures:

    No, it is not. Morning Glory has heart shaped leaves. Please upload you photo's in the future.

    True, but Ipomea is a genus, not a species. The species you need is Ipomea violacea or any of it's sub species.
