It has just been growing under a bamboo. What is it?

Although I cannot be certain, that looks very much like a Hoya to me. I tried to grow one here, but failed. I hope it is, it is a nice plant :)

It is not Hoya. The plant in the OP has alternate leaves. Hoya vines, in the Dogbane family (Apocynaceae), have opposite leaves.

I would like to see more photos, but this may be Vining Pepperface (Peperomia serpens, synonym: Peperomia scandens), a succulent vine in the Black Pepper Family (Piperaceae), native to southern Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

The leaf shape of Peperomia serpens is somewhat variable, but some plants have leaves that resemble those seen in the OP pics.
