Hi there,

This plant started growing in what I thought was a disused pot of soil on my kitchen windowsill (the seed may have blown in when I had the window open), about 2 months ago. I had no plans for the pot so I thought I'd let it grow to see what it was. See image:

The stem is rather stiff, and turning woody at the bottom. Both stem and leaves are covered in fine hairs, and they're fuzzy to the touch. It's about 8cm tall just now.

I've searched through pages of leaf and seedling identification charts but there's only so many pictures of highly similar-looking leaves you can squint at before your brain starts to numb. Does anyone have any ideas?

If the stem is turning woody I would guess it is some sort of tree.

tapa cloth tree- paper mulberry
The pictures I'm looking at of young paper mulberry aren't quite the same as my plant, though I'll admit the description is closer than anything else I've read about, so this may be it. Thanks!
