Is it anything like those air ferns you could by in Jay Norris?  The air fern was something you didn't need to water or plant in soil.  They sold them as air freshener but it actually stank terrible.

Just googled it and it seems an air potato is a weed.........quite invasive........has gained a foothold in the south.

I believe so,  the tuber grows above ground-- thus "air" potato. I couldn't find a picture.
