I know there are 2 different plants here, but they look to be the same kind of plants. The greenish one just popped up from a tiny root. Thanks for your help!

They look like Gesneriads. Aeschynanthus or Columnea.

Looks like Columnea to me also. Looks like two different plants but the one on the left could just be immature new growth from the "mom" plant. If you get a bloom, you should be able to get a correct identification.

O.K. hopefully I'll get some blooms soon, now that it's getting warmer outside. Thanks!

The one on the left looks like Nematanthus, but hard to tell for certain till they flower.

They actually could both be Nematanthus:

Once you get blooms you will know for sure.

That's pretty cool. I've always seen those in catalogs and thought the flowers were pretty. Now I can't wait for them to bloom!
