I need help identifying some plants.
Unknown Basil 1
Unknown Basil 2
Potential Holy Basil 1
Potential Holy Basil 2
I purchased these two types of basil online. They both claim to be holy basil but they are clearly two different types.
I noticed that the basil in the blue container is not hairy, which means it cannot be holy basil as that is one of the characteristics.
The basil in the red container does have the hairy characteristic, but I am not sure if the leaves are the correct colour or if it is even a basil.
I had a look at two youtube videos, but it seems basil quickly cross-pollinates and thus Ocimum tenuiflorum may change quickly and become another species, but for most of the seeds to change, I am not so sure if that is possible. I would have thought cross-pollination only result in a few seeds changing rather than most or all of them.
So, what plants am I actually growing?
EDIT: I thought the blue container might be Thai Basil, but some of the stems aren't purple...
