Hello! So I ordered what I thought was frangipani seeds off Amazon ( I know, not very smart) but they were cheap and thought "why not?" Well what came in the mail was not plumeria seeds but tiny little black bigger then a poppy seed. I planted them anyway but I really don't have any clue what is growing. I'm a newbie gardner so forgive not using proper terms but the stalk/body is pink and all the leaves are green. If you look closely at the pick you will see white "hairs" growing. I've googled a million different things and even tried some plant identifier apps but nothing is really matching.

Agree. Its Portulaca ☺
It could be P. grandiflora. But some other species of portulaca also have the same leaf. Just wait till it sendtl the flower out Smiling
