    #6 looks like:
    • Ardisia crenata, Coral Berry;
    • Dracaena sanderiana, Ribbon Plant.

    1 appears to be an Episcia.
    4 looks like Swedish ivy.
    Agree with Junglekeeper as to Ardisia/Dracaena in 6.

    ?

    Togata, do you mean#3

    4 is a Cactus - probably Echinocereus. It needs a lot of heat to stay happy.

    Actually I meant 5! Math never my strong suit.

    Think riptidefrog may be right about 2...I trust and believe that 3 will remain unidentified until a better photo is given us.

    rtf, you just might be right about 3. Aluminum plant (Pilea cadierei) is a fair bet based on what one can see in the photo, shininess/stripiness-wise. As for the poster's description of the plant as 'viny', I daresay that this might in fact be legginess.

    I had a passing thought of strawberry begonia (Saxifraga stolonifera)...? Dunno. Perhaps this ID will remain one of those Unsolved Botanical Mysteries.
