#1 looks like euphorbia trigona
African Milk Tree (Euphorbia trigona)

#3 may be Purple Passion Plant
Purple Velvet Plant (Gynura aurantiaca 'Purple Passion')

#4 looks like some form of Plectranthus, but I am unsure, because they are not my expertise.
Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides Trusty Rusty)

Agree with 3, 4 is definitely a Coleus. There are thousands of named cultivars.

Does #2 have fuzzy leaves? I get a "gesneriad" vibe from it, but that's hardly specific at all.

I hope someone can identify #2, because I am curious about those fuzzy frosted looking leaves.

I agree with all the above ID's and #2 does indeed look like it's in the Gesneriad family. It reminds me of Sinningia. When it blooms, you will be able to get a more exact ID but here are a few photos from our database for comparison to Sinningia foliage:

Yes, those leaves could very well be Kohleria! Once FearLessGreen gets flowers on that plant, it will show it's true self.
