He knows ricin wasn't the poison but because he thinks Walt stole his (ricin laden) cigarette - this somehow means Walt was the poisoner.
Having Jessie crash the White's pool (knowing no one was home) and finding the plants would have been a stronger catalyst imo.
The plant was disposed of in the first episode of season 5, while Walt was disposing of all of the evidence of his connection with the death of Gus Fring.
Jesse purchased a gun and was ready to use it when Walt came to his house in "Gliding Over All." He believes that Walt killed Mike. Look at all of the rest of the things that Jesse has either seen Walt do or knows that he did. It's really not a stretch for Jesse to suddenly realize that Walt had Saul and Huell steal the cigarette from him. Whether he used it on Brock or not is inconsequential because Brock was still poisoned by something. Regardless of what was used to poison Brock, the kid was still poisoned, and while everyone discovered what caused the poisoning it was probably always dubious to Jesse that the symptoms conveniently mimicked the symptoms that Mr. White told him that ricin would cause. If you remember back to "End Times," Jesse was ready to kill Mr. White but Walt was able to convince him that Gus stole the cigarette and ultimately caused Jesse to side with Walt and sign off on killing Gus. Then, magically the cigarette appears in a Roomba that Jesse already searched. It doesn't matter that the cigarette wasn't used to poison Brock, Jesse is smart enough to figure out that Mr. White could have staged the whole thing.
