    Good. That way I can send the people I sent the fake, the real thing.

    Thanks!

    A mature D. oblanceolata has two forms of leaves on a short 2cm stalk, decumbant leaves with short petioles (3-7mm) with orbicular lamina and somewhat upright leaves with long (1-3.2 cm) petioles with oblanceolate or linear lamina. Younger plants may only have the shorter leaves. Plant is an annual grower.

    If the seed doesn't look like the type specimen below it probably isn't D. oblanceolata.

    The plant's leaves looked like that when I recieved it, not anymore though.

    The plants in question are flowering now, I will try to take photos of the seeds.
