Hi there,
I am new to this forum and would like to ask a favour. I am after the name of one of my house plants as I don't have the label any longer and forgot the name.

Thanks in advance

-Gregor

Looks like peperomia. I think it might be peperomia hope.

Try asking plant ID

Thanks, I just checked it but that's not it even they look similar.

Do you mean plant identifier app? If so I have tried but the app is giving me the wrong output

New members are limited to a certain number of new threads. This restriction will be lifted once your membership is no longer brand new.

Not great to be honest, I have written the shop where I bought it maybe that is the best solution.

Thanks anyways

I know it is frustrating but if new members did not have restrictions the site would be overrun with spammers. Please stick around and keep posting. Welcome!

That is really cool! Apparently it's an "ant plant" and a "shingle vine".

I couldn't find enough pics to see the difference between Dischidia diphylla and D. platyphylla, but a bunch of sites have copied and pasted these same words, "Dischidia diphylla was described by Adolph Daniel Edward Elmer but never validly published since Elmer failed to include Latin diagnoses or descriptions for the species he described after 1934. This species is known from the Philippines on Luzon Island. It is considered to be one of the ant plants and has large imbricate leaves. The flowers are yellow."

Are they the synonyms of same species?

Found a video how to propagate so gave it a shot and will know in a few weeks I guess. It would be super cool as the plant wasn't cheap here in the UK for its size so having success would mean I can give some to friends 😊

Welcome! to the site!

Here are our database entries for both and they do look very similar to each other:
Ant Plant (Dischidia diphylla)
Dischidia platyphylla

Lin, yes, from those few pics. With so many fewer pics available for D. diphylla, as if hardly anybody has even seen it, and the info that the name wasn't validly published, it seems like a less likely candidate. If it wasn't published, is it a real name of an actual, different species?

"Platyphylla" indicates flat leaves but I couldn't find a translation of "diphylla." I didn't go far into it, just enough to skimming to develop more questions.

In any case, "shingle vines" are so cool!

Greg, I hope it goes well! If you are able to sit some small rocks on top of the nodes so they maintain contact with the soil, that could increase the chances of more nodes taking root.

I was hoping for a tip as I am a beginner when it comes to propagating.

Thanks

Tiffany, according to the Catalogue of Life, both Dischidia diphylla and D. platyphylla are both accepted species names:
