My sister -in-law brought me a big jar of different cuttings. I sorted them out as best I could and have been potting them up as they root. Can you guys help id them so I can look them up to see how to take care of them. Thank You!

The photos are quite blurry and with my poor eyesight I can't venture guesses on any of them except the very last one which reminds me of Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus)

Hopefully others will recognize them and be able to offer exact ID's.

Edited to say: Please disregard my first sentence ... it was my eyes that must have been blurry when I first responded because I see them clearly now. I really do need to get these cataracts removed! :)

Are each of these a different plant?

Did you edit and change the order of the photos ... or maybe it's just my eyes again? Smiling

#1, #2, #5, #7, #8 Look to be Tradescantia of some sort; two for comparison:
Speedy Jenny (Tradescantia 'Baby Bunny Bellies')
White Velvet (Tradescantia sillamontana)

#3 ?? Can you post another photo from a different angle, possibly from the side?
#4 Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus)
#6 Reminds me a bit of Plumerias (Plumeria) leaves. Is the white stuff I see a milky sap?

This is very confusing. I think I'll wait till they grow into actual whole plants & try again. Thank you all for your help in trying to I'd my plants. Group hug

I agree with Plantladylin, except that I don't think any of the cuttings are Baby Bunny Bellies. The appear to all be the same plant, some cuttings receiving more light than others. Swedish Ivy is correct for #4, and I would go with plumeria or more probably Croton (which has lost it's variagation under low light conditions) for #6. Both plants exude a milky white sap, which is irritating to most people's skin. Oh, and #3 appears to be a tip cutting from corn plant, dracaena fragrans.
