Found some new plants at walmart, but they're not named.:~( Soooooo let's play the name that plant game!!

First, I guess this one is a Nephthytis. The top of the leaves are a misty mauve and the bottoms are green. It's really pretty. Anyone know which one it is??

Plant #1

This one is a different Nephthytis(I assume). The new leaves are red and the old leaves have a red mist and red veins.

Plant #2

baja,

your 1st pic is a arrowhead vine like this one, http://davesgarden.com/pf/showimage/96343/

i have one and i water when it's dry and it gets the afternoon sun thru my patio glass doors and is thriving..they get pretty big and bushy...the more sun the get the pinker the leaves get, my mom has one that has solid pink leaves..so so pretty.

still trying to figure out the other pics you posted ;o)

Edited to add that i think this is the last pic... i also have one of those and it is outside on my front porch and is also thriving, it gets the afternoon sun, not direct sun but lots of lights.

The first two are some sort of syngonium (used to be nephthytis). Maybe you can identify them from this site:

#3 is Ming Aralia (Polyscias fruticosa).


#4 could be some kind of Dracaena deremensis or maybe furcraea?

That's what I was thinking...Some kind of varigated Dracaena.

I think #4 is Dracaena deremensis 'warneckii'...there are some variations on the spelling of 'warneckii'...but a search will still yield some good results.
