Hello Everyone,
I committed the gardeners SIN!! I planted seeds and didn't label them!😣😣😣

I've been planting potato seeds, Strawberry Seeds and Blueberry seeds.

Can anyone tell me what these precious seedlings are?πŸ˜ŸπŸ™ƒπŸ˜’
I am so excited they germinated but now I don't want to kill them by not handling correctly.

Thank you sooooo much!!!

Might be blueberries. Not taters, I don't think. Not strawberries.

They are not potato or strawberry seedlings. I don't know what blueberry seedlings look like, but if you only have three choices that's what's left.

Where did you buy your seeds?

There are a lot of scammers selling seeds on websites like eBay & Amazon who will send random, common seeds instead of the seeds actually ordered.

I am not sure what they are but these are three things almost no one grows from seed. They are showing compound leaf like you see on beans and other flowering plants related to beans.
I really recommend using a mainstream seed selling company Most of them give you lots of advice and help on their website. And these are three seeds I have rarely or never seen offer seeds of these three plants.
But ebay etc -- seems to include plenty of cheap 'seeds' that are not what was ordered, don'r grow at all.. its a few easy bucks for them, because so few buyers will dispute or expect money back
If you loved me half as much as I love you, you wouldn't worry me half as much as you do...

I've seen strawberry seeds for sale, but from seed, they take years to produce, and bare root plants are just too cheap, considering the price of strawberries. (I just put 22 in a hydroponic rain tower.) I really suspect they're potatoes, but I don't think I've ever seen a potato seed or seen them offered, except for special purposes. Commercial hybrids have to be grown from seed potatoes, rather than true seed. And true seed is apparently a giant pain to prepare to plant. I have, though, seen people planting blueberries, the actual berry.

Hello Everyone, Thank You! Thank you very much for your help. I've ruled out Strawberries, but still trying to figure out if they are Potato or Blueberries.

I admit I purchased the Strawberry seeds from the WISH app and they may or may not be Legitimate. But the potato seeds were from Botanical Interests Rolling my eyes. and the Blueberry Seeds I did buy from Amazon which I agree is a little iffy. Blinking
I've already learned a great lesson to buy my seeds from a legitimate company Hurray! .


When I look at the leaves of the Blueberry plant and the potato plant I'm still lost! Sighing!

Don't know if it will help, but I have trialed some of the potato seeds. This is Clancy. Potato (Solanum tuberosum 'Clancy') May give you base for comparison.

Just to be contrary, I'll go for blueberry. Add more photos as they grow.

Your post would probably get more attention if you started a new thread for it.

With pinnately compound leaves the only option is potato. The others have simple (blueberry) and palmately compound (strawberry) leaves. Or they're something else entirely, although if those are the only options, potato it is.

Pics #1 most clearly -- on the left side of the picture. Slightly out of focus but noticeable.

I've never grown potatoes but I do grow blueberries. The leaves on your plants, although its premature to say, are not dark enough. They seem to not be getting enough light if they are blueberries. Blueberry plants also get red branches when dormant. I go with potatoes. Potatoes tend to have light colored leaves.

Looking forward to seeing what they look like in the future. I do hope whatever they are it is a crop plant.
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.

Dried fruit seeds are very difficult and time consuming to germinate and always require a cold stratification period or many periods of cold warm, while fresh fruit seeds do not. That is why cultivated varieties are not grown from seed, that and the hybrids will not come true to type and take years to produce. Only species should be started from seeds and only if you cannot get the live plant. Because they are still very difficult to germinate once dried and take a long time to produce.

But it's still fun to plant them and see what you get.

@Slrice Do you have any of the seeds left?

If so, you could post photos of the actual seeds and we might be able to tell you if they could possibly be potato, strawberry, or blueberry. Strawberry and blueberry seeds are pretty tiny, of course.

The first photo really does look like a legume of some sort to me, too.
