There is 2 plants in this pot. I was told I could put all the plants I was given in one pot but I didn't want to do that, so I tried grouping them my self. These to were cut from her plants, I dipped them in root hormone and put them in dirt. I don't now if they can stay in the same pot till spring or not.

This was said to be a Lipstick Plant.
I have 6 more pot of plants I would like to ask about. I was thinking I would do one pot a day if its ok? Any info on care of my plants would be greatly appreciated. The lady took the time to give them to me and I really want to do my best to keep them alive.
Thank you for your time

The plant on left in your first photo and the leaf in your second photo looks to be a cane type Begonia: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

My eyes aren't the best but the other plant doesn't look like Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus) but rather a Hoya, possibly
Wax Plant (Hoya carnosa) or Wax Plant (Hoya pubicalyx)

If the second plant is actually a Hoya, in my opinion they should not be planted together as the two require entirely different growing conditions. While the Begonia likes consistently moist soil, the Hoya is more succulent and stores water in those thick leaves, requiring much less water.

Hopefully others will pop in with suggestions before long.

Hi & welcome! Agree with the suggested ID's. I find the cane type Begonias to be very un-thirsty plants during winter, just like Hoyas, both have similar tolerances for light. Unless you would make some attempt to moisten the soil of a Hoya less a Begonia when watering, there's no reason they shouldn't enjoy being companions. More thirsty plants use the moisture quickly, less thirsty plants seem to appreciate the more thirsty plants helping to dry soil quickly. Soon, I will put cuttings of Coleus in many of my potted house plants to save inside for winter. They're like the canary in the coal mine; when Coleus wilts, the pot is definitely dry. To add a bit of perspective on how I like to group plants together, I have a lot pots that are similar to this:
