    I rescued these plants from a friend who was tossing them out. With good soil, a weekly watering and my TLC, they are looking healthy and much better than they were 2 months ago. Now I need their IDs so I can find out how to take good care of them. The one in the middle is 2 cuttings I took from the main plant with hope that they will root and I can start another one.

    I know the one in the middle's an umbrella tree, but I don't know the others.

    Middle is indeed Schefflera, umbrella tree (there is a smaller, shrubby species that's become popular in Florida). On the right, I think maybe wax plant, Hoya carnosa.

    OOPS! Don't know why I had 4 rescued... when I only have 3 of them pictured. Anyway, thanks for the info. I had a Schefflera tree way back when I had room and I thot that's what that one is so I will have to look up ways to propagate those cuttings, if possible.

    For the other two plants I will wait and see if I get any more replies. Thanks for the help but I need to be sure.

    I second Mrsubjunctive's suggestions. You won't go wrong caring for those
    plants based on his knowledge.

    saltcedar: Thankyou and I agree about Mrsubjunctive! I have Google searched his answers and I do believe that if this plant (Nematanthus cv.? Possibly Aeschynanthus sp. or Columnea sp.) flowers I will know for sure! I am certainly hoping that it will get flowers soon.
