    Hello. I have a few to post, so I'll try to break them up and describe them for the search engines. I'm one of those folks that takes plants of peoples hands for them without knowing what they are. haha.

    First Plant: Vine/crawler - elonged-heart-shaped leaves. Green and white in colour. (vine01.jpg and vine02.jpg)

    Second Plant: Sectioned stems with green and white leaves. Leaves resemble the above plant. Is about a foot tall. Would likely sprawl out of pot, but have it tied up. (white-green-leaves.jpg).

    Thanks :)

    The common names would be Pothos and Dumb Cane, respectively

    Thanks!
    1) Scindapsus aureus/Devil's Ivy/Pothos

    2) Diffenbacchia - the only pics I find online are of big ones...mine has small leaves, about 2 inches in length...lots of bent, sectioned, stems...is the care for them all the same?

    Care should be the same although the more heavily variegated varieties might benefit from higher light levels.

    Regards

    Thanks Chris. This guy has the best seat in the house as far as light is concerned. haha.

    Not sure what else to do for him though. He gets the best light and is watered correctly.
