Very cool ... keep us posted on how they turn out! I've never tried growing any of them from seed except the Ipomoea purpurea 'Crimson Rambler'. I notice on the photo it shows a little sign that says Moon Flower which I know as Moonflower (Ipomoea alba) but the seeds say Crimson Rambler so it will be fun to see which one it contains. The Moon Flowers open at night and are very fragrant! Here are the database listings for each of those listed on your seed packets.

Tall Morning Glory (Ipomoea purpurea 'Crimson Rambler')
Polka Dot Plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya)
Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides)
Madagascar Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)

LOL, I didn't notice that ... and I've never heard of Hypoestes with the common name of "Lava Plant".

I'm sure they do bloom where they grow outside unimpeded by cold weather, but I've never seen anyone post a pic of one blooming in a pot. Not that I've seen every house plant post, but I don't miss many that are about plants that I know well.

I hope it's what it says though, you would have the most unusual "dragon tree" I've encountered.

Also anxious to see what you end up growing!
