What variety of Khat is this?

I grew these from seeds an Aussie member here sent me, they are green with those rusty patches of red. Any idea what type of Khat it could be?

Catha leaves that shine like mirrors...

1st pic only:

on the left a seedling of a broadleaved red (maybe a pink?).

on the right a more narrow leaved (red or maybe more pink)

at the right, same pot at the top left corner a Catha looking like a vienna white.


in the wild there are said to be around 200 strains,

and above beauty full pics, show you they hy breed well.


but, in a way one would like stabilised plants,

breeding true to type.


for a true to type seed bearer, you need to inbreed and or stop foreign pollen. the original nl, red, vw, were all stabile, till me, 

acted pollinator.

Thanks a lot PH, they all came from the same seeds so maybe it's just different phenotype expressions.
