there are a few plants i have that i just dont know what they are. this first one i have had for years.... but have no idea what it is - it behaves like a phliodendron.. but at the same time it doesnt. it has grown from one branch only and used to have the strength to stand on it's own - but got so leggy i wrapped it around a branch. the new growth comes from the stem of the leaf before it.. curling and lifting out.. very strange. those are the circled sections. and now after wrapping it - it has branched out to more growth - finally. i'd love to find out what this plant really is if anyone has any idea.

the first one might be some type of hoya. are the leaves kind of waxy and thick/fleshy?

the last one looks like a draceana and the one before it with the multi-colored flower is a bromeliad. i couldn't say which particular varieties tho.

welcome to the forum!!! you'll find a ton of info here and even more terrific people!!

it isnt like a hoya.. unfortunately... it feels like a philodendron... smells similar too when broken or bruised. thin leaves - they just look waxy from being washed before i took the pictures... thanks for iding the bromeliad!

Hi Damia,
I think you're probably right about the 1st one being a Philodendron.
Most of them do grow more robustly with some support,
so that branch you gave it has probably made it happier.

#2 ~ (photo #5) looks like it could be a young Pachypodium (maybe P. geayi).
#3 ~ I think, might be a young Yucca plant.
#4 ~ I agree, is a lovely Bromeliad.
#5 ~ appears to be Dracaena "Lemon Lime".

Wow.... how very cool to learn about the Pachypodium.... thanks so very much for identifying it! and i do agree on the last one being a dracaena... i think i found it is Warneckii after looking it up more on the web. Thanks so very much! a young yucca... i'm goning to have to watch that one with interest for sure.. yucca's are neat. not as neat as the Pachy plant though!
