I've been trying to identify some house plants I brought a year ago.
I got them from a diy supplier.

They only included a generic "how to care for" sticker.
I've checked 411 pictures on another site and couldn't identify them.

If anyone could give me the name of any of these plants, if be very grateful.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Obliviruss, Welcome!

Photos #1 & #2 Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina 'Variegata')
Photos #3 & 4 is either Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina) or Ficus benjamina var. benjamina
Photos #5 & 6 look like Dwarf Umbrella Tree (Schefflera arboricola)
Photos #7 & 8 Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata 'Tricolor') or perhaps Dracaena marginata 'Bicolor'

The first two plants are both Ficus benjaminas, but the first one is variegated. Both have the same care requirements.

The next plant is a Schefflera arboricola followed by a Dracaena marginata.

Let us know if you have any questions about their care. You will get better information here than doing a random online search.

Thank you very much.
How to care for them would be great.

I looked at plantlads links and they answer most of my questions.

I wanted to make sure they were getting appropriate shade/light.

Again the info that came with them were incredibly vague about light/water requirements.

Once again thank you for the info. Really quick and concise.

If you keep all your plants in their plastic nursery pots, that will make watering them much easier. In general, that means watering them thoroughly about once per week. Before you do that, please confirm how they are potted.

Your Ficus trees do best with maximum indoor sunlight, right in front of a sunny window. Your other two plants can use less light, but still should be within 3-4 feet of a sunny indoor window

They're all in plastic pots.
Then placed in ceramic display pots.

Just need to move them around now.
I got the ficus plants furthest from the window atm.

Thank you for advice,

Russ
