Personally I wouldn't trust most varieties that were obtained in trade unless you know that trader and could contact him or her formore information.

There are some varieties where the first set of true leaves can look RL OR PL and then as the plant matures the true leaf form appears.. Which is why I never make a call as to leaf form until there are at least 5-6 branches.
