Plant ID Please

Any thoughts please? I know they are not flytraps, but would like to know what I've grown (I do know others have grown similar Poundland flytraps, but no IDs as yet!).

They now look quite sad as they are very pot bound, and the leaves have turned purple and furry. Help!

 

Thanks,

Tim.

    If I were feeling charitable I might say that they look a bit like dahlias.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • Thanks for the suggestion. Possibly some better photos here if it helps: http://m.bucksfreepress.co.uk/news/13328722.Councillor_fears_mystery_Poundland_plant_could_be_dangerous/?ref=mr&lp=2

    The seeds were tiny and potted in supplied vermiculite so I know they were stray seeds I introduced

    They are potted on now, so if they survive to next year I may get a flower...

    That's Poundland I'm afraid. Not exactly renowned for their plants, Tim....image

    Is it wrong that I laughed at that report?  image

    They're dangerous/hazardous and going to kill children apparently....image

    I have a picture of triffids in my head  now. It's like an episode of Dr Who image

    I think we're doomed to diminishing journalistic standardsimage

    This one is good compared to some I've seen
