Just wild guesses on my part ... I'm really not good at trying to compare photo's, but those I've given names for reminded me of plants in my collection. Smiling

Paul: For photo #6, can you show a photo of the entire plant? For some reason that top reminds me of Euphorbia lactea 'Cristata':

When I went to the nursery that day I discovered that the memory on my camera was almost full. I normally take 3 or more of each plant but only took one of this. I've looked at pictures on other sites and think you are correct.

I agree and it's the 'White Ghost' version of E. lactea cristata, if I'm not mistaken.

No. 1 photo does look like a portulacaria afra or elephant bush that has been grown in part shade that's why the branches/stem are not too burgundy looking and N0. 5 photo does look like Euphorbia Tirucalli
