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!
Leonda

This is the blooms from it. Sorry for the quality of the picture, but she took it.

She called this one a onion plant?

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 Houseplants forum

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

The last one has been answered in this thread;
http://garden.org/thread/view_post/1054059/

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
