Greetings fellow gardeners,

I sowed some flower seeds in pots. I do not know now which seedlings are of which flower!

I need everyone's help in recognizing them. 

The album is publicaly available at following link.

Some of seedling are not growing at all. I had tried adding GardenMix but no benefit. Potting medium I had used is Vermeculite + Cocopeat.

 

thank you

nitin

Couldn't recognize many, may be because they are pretty young. 

The one you've commented as Carom seeds is either Ajwain or spanish oregano. Its a nice herb, grows very well in this part of the country. Not sure how to use it though 🙂

carom seeds is Indian Oregano, used as herb, also can be used in pakodas for flavor

gerbera is actually geranium, I think

first pic is of purslane, one of the lesser known green leafy vegetable. cooked similar to spinach, slightly sour taste. flowers yellow, tiny black seeds are formed very fast and it self-seeds too. Do confirm this before consuming Smile

The plant which smell like carrom seed is not Oregano or Ajwain (Carom in english) seed plant! This is very tough plant survived 3 months without water(might be occasional rain!)

yes Nitin, the Indian/Cuban/Spanish Oregano doesn't really need that much water. I am referring to this .. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.....an_oregano.
