    Hi, I joined this forum cause i've got this plant and I want to know what it is.
    I have been told that it is a Salvia Divinorum plant, but it doesn't look like any of the pictures of the plant that I have seen. So I was wondering if anyone has any idea what it is. Its about 2-3 months old and I grew it from a seed. It has a funny smell if i rub my fingers on the leaves. Not sure what to make of it.
    Please help...

    Looks like Charlock (Sinapis arvensis) or Radish (Raphanus sativus). But hard to be certain without any flowers.

    Hello,
    Salvia divinorum is generally grown from cuttings and not from seed. I hope you didn'y have to pay much for the seed. It can reach quite a high price and what you have is definitely not Salvia.

    Could it be that flower that is purple and then makes seeds that look like sillver discs that are used by florists. I can't remember its name but it can be a weed and will come up each year.

    The plant you are thinking of is Honesty (Lunaria), but the mystery plant isn't that (Honesty doesn't have those broad lobes at the base of the leaf).

    Looks like a mustard relation, perhaps one of those suggested by Michael.
