Thank you both!!!

I just called and asked about #6. They did know it! It's called Euphorbia platyclada... or dead sticks euphorbia. Funnier yet, that one IS IN BLOOM! Hahahaha. When they told me that I didn't believe them!

Good name. Now... how do you know your Dead Stick plant isn't actually a dead plant?

Agree with Daisy... appropriate name... The flowers are tiny and I think you can see on on the left hand side of the picture on the end of the lower most branch.

Thank you so much everyone!

Yes Thijs, you are correct! That is the bloom to the left, the teeny yellowish part!

Daisy, also a good question which I also asked! They said if it was dead it would get real shriveled haha. Such an interesting plant!

ALSO, I got a little stowaway in my plant. I know its young, but any clue on its ID? Thanks everyone!

#4... I was thinking of Cissus quadrangularis - some have compound leaves. I don't know if that's right though.

If we could cross Senecio articulatus with Cissus quadrangularis, we would have your plant. Smiling

Daisy,

I googled Cissus quadrangularis and this photo came up, which has leaves similar to Senecio articulatus as you suggested!!! I'm thinking you may be onto something, if not nailed it! (:

For the stowaway maybe crassula exilis or something along those lines? The leaf texture and shape as well as plant form look really similar to that to me.
