I have 2 plants here that I can not get an ID on and would appreciate your input. The red one grows like a weed and I cut it back a lot and now I have many of them growing, this one was a clipping 3 months ago. It pumps out a root system in water with hormone in 2 days and will grow if placed directly in a container of seedling soil and I am guessing that any soil would work kept very wet. I am going to cut one back every set of new leaves and make it bush out of it.

The green plant grows fast and has a hard wood stem and has doubled in size in 3 months. I am hoping it is a tree and will grow to great heights.

Merry Christmas every one and a special new year to you all.

Could the green one be a bottlebrush tree?

The red colored plant reminds me of one called a Bloodleaf plant, or sometimes called the Chicken Gizzard plant (Iresine herbstii)

Nice plants whatever you have!
