A friend gave me these and she has no idea what their names are. I also purchased some that were nearly free from Lowes, unfortunately they didn't have any id tags. Any growing tips would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!

This one had a tag that said it's a Dieffenbachia, but I haven't been able to find any information on it. The leaves are turning brown.

Welcome! Leonda!

#1 is a Hoya, we have a thread going on in our Houseplants forum
The thread "who loves hoyas?" in Hoyas forum

#3 (and I think #4) too are Dieffenbachia

The last one has been answered in this thread;

Sure others will chime in to help with the others.
It is better to start a new thread for each plant, so not to cause confusion.. Smiling

Thank you so much @bonitin Myriam. I did do a little research and found out that the first one is indeed a Hoya, Freckles, now I just need to learn how to take cate of it. I will have to hop over to that forum and see what all I can learn. I need a lot of teaching lol.

I have to agree with you on individual posts, because even I have gotten a little confused over my own posts lol Confused So I think that will be my next thing to do.

#3 I found out is. Florida Beauty Dracena, but I still have no idea what it needs to be happy, but hopefully when I post these individually someone will put me on the right path.

The pink-edge leaves may be Cordyline fruticosa (Ti plant.)

The last 2 pics of the first entry here look like Kalanchoe blossfeldiana.

Thank you so much @plantladylin Lin for all the help. Now I will do some learning lol.
You can see what she called a onion plant. In this picture. To the left of the cactus, the long green shoot.

Just looked and I do believe that it is one. Just wonder if I'm supposed to plant the little bulb all the in the dirt or not.

Thank You! so very much Big Grin
