    Hello everybody. These are plants that I've started from slips over the past while. Any idea as to what they would be?

    The first one looks like Rope Hoya, H. compacta.
    The second one is a Stapelia. Which one won't be possible to tell until it blooms.
    The third looks like Hoya carnosa 'variegata'
    The fourth is regular Hoya carnosa
    The fifth is Pothos (Epipremnium aureum).

    I'm pretty sure that last one is Philodendron scandens.

    Thanks. I'm not sure about the fourth one. The leaves aren't hard like those of a Hoya.

    I'm surprised to have recognized that one. I used to have 100 plants in my bedroom during college. Knew most of them. These days, I could count on 10 fingers the ones I know.

    Hoya was one of my favorites.

    Agree with thanrose that 5 is a philodendron.
    Hmm...sure would like photopro/junglekeeper to take a gander at 4...looks aroid-ish to me.

    4 and 5 are both philodendrons. 5 most likely IS p. scandens. not sure which one 4 is.

    Number four resembles Philodendron pusillum which is one of the two smallest Philodendron species in the world. The structure of the sheath on the petiole makes me believe this is an aroid. You can check the details of the plant here to make a determination:

    The problem with that one is P. pusillum is a fairly rare species.


    The fifth appears to be one of the thousand or so natural variations of Philodendron hederaceum (Jacq.) Schott (1829) also known and sold as Philodendron scandens, Philodendron micans, Philodendron oxycardium, and other names. This could be a variation sold as "Philodendron Brasil". I don't believe this is Epipremnum aureum known commonly as Pothos.
