    I got these cuttings from my mom who bought the plants from a supermarket. They had the standard "Tropical Foliage" tag with the standard care instructions that really aren't helpful in the least.

    Can anyone identify these two plants? They are both trailing, the first one is a little more upright but tends to trail when it gets heavy. They are pretty and I'd like to know the specifics on care for them.

    Thanks

    The first plant appears to be Aeschynanthus longicaulis (syn. A. marmoratus, A. zebrinus), Zebra Basket Vine.

    The second plant is Peperomia puteolata. Try a Google image search. Joe

    Thanks for the replies. Now that I have an idea where to start I googled both Peperomia puteolata and Aeschynanthus marmoratus, looks like that's what they are. Thanks again, you guys are great!!
