Plant ID please

These were grown from seeds which were ordered online. Unfortunately the seller was less than reputable, and sent seeds for completely different plants which are no doubt a cheaper species.


I would appreciate an identification so I can judge if the plants are safe to grow.


The first had 1mm black circular seeds, which are flat in profile. Some leaves have a mottled appearence,  which isn't apparent on every leaf.


Second plant has 2mm black spherical seeds. One picture shows the seed still attatched to a leaf.


Thank you!

    Hello OPS,


    Welcome to NaturePlus.


    The seedlings are a bit small for me to get much of an idea. Plant 1 could possibly be an Amaranthus of some sort, there was a similar seedling identified by another forum member a while ago.


    I don't have any suggestions for plant 2. Are you able to give any more clues, such as, any aroma if you rub the leaves, or they succulent?


    Regards Lucy

        Oh dear, you do seem to have a mixed bag, and sadly not what you wanted. If you can keep the plants, and add more photos as they grow, it might help to nail them down.
