I bought Telegraph Plant seeds (Codariocalyx motorius) on Amazon, but after growing the plant I am now not sure if I was given the correct seeds. My plant does not seems to have the same leaf structure or the same growth pattern as the Telegraph plant. From the pictures i have seen online the Telegraph plant is supposed to grow from a single center stem but my plant has just multiple stems coming from the soil outwards rather then the single straight stem with small leaves attached like i have seen in pictures. Then my leaf structure looks pointy while the telegraph plant pictures i have seen seem to have wide leaves without sharp tips.

So I want to know what you think this plant could be?

I agree it does not look to be a Telegraph Plant, but I can't help name it. I hope the experts are watching.

Perhaps it will help if you can take more pictures as it matures.
