Please correct me if I'm wrong, but could picture 4 be Oxalis acetosella?

My guess is picture 3 is a type of fern. But what fern could it be? Duh

#3 looks suspiciously ferny to me, but I couldn't tell you which it might be. It's not one of the 50 - 60 that I have, though, so I could tell you what it's not. I would venture, though, that *IF* it is a fern it's an epiphyte...

#4 looks like some of the clover that grows in my yard, but, again, I couldn't tell you what, exactly, it is. Mine are about 3" across.

#6, 7, & 8 look to be a kind of pitcher plant, which is carnivourous, so feel free to keep it in the kitchen if you have gnats about the fuit bowl, and it should be quite happy with you.

#8 looks like a variety of dutchman's pipe

the clover looks like run of the mill clover rather than oxalis, which is acutally wood sorrel. the way to tell is to dig some up. oxalis has tuber type roots and clover has regular roots.

I would agree that 6,7 and 8 all look like a pitcher plant. If soo they love to be kept moist. Diane has a great thread on them up in House plants and has a lot of great info on them. Thanks to her mine is doing great!

Are all Oxalis species tuberous, or only Oxalis tuberosa is? I don't think the one in my photo has tuberous roots, because I saw some growing between fine cracks of the floor. Hm... Duh

6, 7 and 8 are photos of the same plant, which is a Nepenthes species. Actually, I posted a link in the 'Carnivorous Insectivores' section to get the species identified.

The plant in picture 4 looks like 4 leaf clover. Also know as oxalis. This plant will eventually have little pink flowers. It is also sold in the stores as Shamrock.

Thanks, flowerguesser! smile Yup, it has been confirmed to be Oxalis. This one though, has yellow flowers.
