(Bur-Cucumber (Sicyos angulatus) - 15a) If we look at the underside of this leaf, we can clearly see the 5 lobes signified by the 5 main veins in the leaf radiating from where the stem attaches to the leaf. Using the face of a clock to establish direction, the central vein is pointing to 5 o'clock, the first left and right lateral main veins are pointing to 4 and 6 o'clock respectively, and the second left and right lateral veins are pointing to 2:30 and 7:30 o'clock respectively.
