#2 looks like a Fittonia: Nerve Plant (Fittonia albivenis)
#3 could be a Pilea, there are many: Silver Tree (Pilea spruceana)
#4, compare to Tinantia: Spotted Inch Plant (Tinantia pringlei)
and Callisia elegans: Striped Inch Plant (Callisia gentlei var. elegans)

Happy to suggest material for your investigation. ;)
Compare the last one to this one:
Watermelon Peperomia (Peperomia argyreia)

It sure is weird ... must be a hack of some sort because I don't know how someone could sign up without a username. Confused

Dave, there was no name on the post.

Yikes, LOL!
It was the oddest thing with no user name! There were two posts that I know about, greene quoted it above.

I know I'm very late to this game, but:
1 is the "seersucker plant" - Geogenanthus poeppigii
2 does look like Fittonia, but the detail is a bit vague
3 looks like a Miconia
4 seems more like Hypoestes
and Purple named the watermelon Peperomia for you.
