I was told this plant is from the amazon.

It is a climbing vine, has tendrils, lanceolate leaves.
Leaves grow on a modified stem (can't remember the name at the moment) and are single.
has a pungent odor
Leaves turn yellow and red when dying.
Tea made of the leaf is blood red.

Help me ID, win a prize!

No I did not, I am not that stupid...but the fruitcake that brought me the cutting did...a little history about this guy:

Travelled 20,000km by Bicycle to promote human rights, had his pic taken with the king pedo: the pope!
Lived with indians for an entire year, deep in the amazon
a total nutter who did way too much ayahuasca! (soon to be Landon LOL)

I once saw him lick the floor of a public square just to proove he did not give a fuck LOL

a total fucking madman!

he told me the natives use it to purify the blood....I don't really believe him without some backing...I can tell you this plant smells hardcore musky, like the Malboro man! LOL has a strong smell of wood and leather! really weird!

yes, some type of bamboo/rattan was my first thought, but bamboo does not have a potent smell and the leaf formation is slightly different.
I have as of yet not seen this plant flower....hummmmmmm.

This plant has a very uncommon leaf formation, see this picture I posted before of the same plant:



You can see better on this pic that the main stem has a modified stem which leads to a false node where 3 different smaller stems give rise to a single leaf.
