one plant is tall, and grows strange shaped leaves, often with a bit of a horn on the end of each leave. each leave grows slightly differently and always has an interesting varied shape by the time it falls off. during the time that I have owned it it put out a long, thick, stemlike object with hornlike things growing off of it. out of the base of each horn pair a drop of honey shone. i tasted it and it was really good! No bees in the house to use it however. then this plant surprised me even more! it put out another thick branch like stick which was covered by round balls on stems, like a slugs eye stalk. then, as if I wasnt surprised enough already, each of the small green spheres on stems suddenly opened and was a big yellow polleny coated minature firework. very cool plant. ive tried all over to find out what it is. but i dont know how to describe the parts of it to search properly. i really want this plant to thrive so i need to know what it needs most to do so. and cant find that out without knowing what it is. the next plant, is a new one from 'ikea'. my girlfriend liked it. except that it doesnt look in very good condition and will need some help right away. it has pinkish stems that are covered in 'hair'. the leaves are broad, wrinkled, and have a mottled green/silverish look to them. the outides of almost all the leaves on this plant are damaged, i hope it doesnt die. thanks for any help if someone can identify them.
