Could someone identify which plant is this?
« on: September 13, 2020, 07:21:47 PM »
In spring Iíve bought some seeds on Ebay, labeled as ę eucalyptus deglupta Ľ. Month later after sprouting I understood that itís something obviously not eucalyptus but decided for interest continue to grow it. Seller didnít respond to request to explain this. Could someone help me?

3 weeks after sprouting



3 months later

That is not Eucalyptus deglupta alright. Being equatorial monsters they get over 70m tall and are super striking and struggle when the temp falls below 15c.
