Pellionia repens is an easy to grow plant with oval shaped leaves that are green in the center and brown around the edges. The plant grows like a vine and can shingle up a wall if damp or humid enough. The flowers are brown and held in large clusters. Once in flower the pollen shoots out like smoke giving this plant the common name of the Gun powder plant. Also sometimes called the trailing Begonia.
