Hello to all, About three months I planted some seeds believing they were mangosteen. But I don't think these seedlings are indeed mangosteen. Is there anyone on the forum that could identify these seedling?! Thanks in advance.

I am not familiar with the mangosteen.  I love learning about new plants I would like to grow.



This has such great health benefits from here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangosteen

Various parts of the plant have a history of use in traditional medicine, mostly in Southeast Asia; it may have been used to treat skin infections, wounds, dysentery, urinary tract infections, and gastrointestinal complaints

There are many truly fascinating trees and plants that many of us have never heard of since they only thrive in certain latitudes.

 So I would not be able to grow it.  Though I enjoyed learning about this tree.
