Can anyone identify this plant with bulbous root

This is a discussion on Can anyone identify this plant with bulbous root within the The Jungle forums, part of the Land Plants category; I don't think it is Nasturtium. Do we know if it is tropical or not?...

    No idea, he found it in the greenhouse and can't remember where it came from. No tag.

    AhaHA! That is a two holed wingy leafed bulby rooted thingy plant. I had one once and it ate my neighbor's cat. They can be trained but you must be cautious, they don't take well to harsh words or loud noises. And no sudden moves either. Mine contracted a mild form of hysteria and is now residing in the non-native plant society's threatening specie study emporium. Good luck!

    Brilliant Tim. I bet you're right a tuberous begonia. Thanks for jogging my memory. And thanks to all who tried to help.

    Tami, you're a hoot. I needed that chuckle tonight. Thanks.
