    Kind of hard to tell what they are when grown under such unnatural conditions. It might be easier to tell after you deflask them and grow them out for several months.

    Steve, those look like they could be D.capensis.

    With the thick roots and the folding pattern of the leaves growing out, I'd have to concur with capensis.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
