|I received various looking house plant starters from my mom today. She told me there were creeping charlies and flat leaf creeping charlies. I'm hoping to get a positive ID so I can learn a little more about them. Attatched are pictures of all the plants together (including a spider plant), and then individual shots, as well.

|The round scalloped leafed plant is a Creeping Charley. The plant with purple backed leaves is a Tradescantia.

|The first 2 are these 2 plants:
Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus)
Moses-in-a-Basket (Tradescantia spathacea)
The 4th pic (3rd plant) is probably this plant:
But just from that one pic, it could also be a young rosette of its' much larger cousin:
Basket Plant (Callisia fragrans)
If you saw the mama plant, maybe the pics in the database entries will help you to be able to decide which it is.
