So I ordered C. woodii seeds off Amazon from a vendor in China, which should have been my first warning since I have done so before from a different vendor and was shipped an empty package. However, the seeds arrived, and I just have a feeling that these really aren't C. woodii seeds. Any thoughts? Thanks!

So many people order from China and end up disappointed. I wonder why this happens? Blinking
I wouldn't know what those seeds were if I tripped over them, but looking here and there on the internet (and staying within US borders) I found this site with photos:

Go ahead and grow out the seeds anyway. It might just prove to be an interesting and/or useful plant. Crossing Fingers!

Very good points! I will definitely plant them, it will be fun to see what comes up!

They also sent 100 "Giant Strawberry seeds" as a "free gift", maybe to try to placate my anger Hilarious!

No, they are not Ceropegia woodii seeds. Unfortunately, I have no idea what they are.
