Hello all, I am a newbie to this forum and to indoor gardening as well. I have been able to keep these plants alive, but the credit goes the large glass door through which sunlight is received through out the day. I kindly seek your help and expertise in recognizing the name of the plant and whether they look healthy in the photo. Much thanks in advance to those that participate. I am also open to tips and tricks that you can offer.

Sincerely,

Hi usmanc, Welcome!

#1 reminds me of Baby Rubber Plant (Peperomia obtusifolia)
#2 reminds me of Dracaena (Dracaena fragrans 'Janet Craig Compacta')
#3 is a variety of Croton (Codiaeum variegatum)
#4 possibly a variety of Rex Begonia (Begonia rex-cultorum) for comparison check out photos of this one: Rex Begonia (Begonia rex 'Red Tango')
#5 ?? I don't recognize that succulent but I'm sure someone will be able to offer suggestions to the identity.

I can't offer tips on care because your plants all look happy and healthy to me so I say, just keep doing what you've been doing! Smiling

Thank you so much, PlantLadyLin. You have guessed or named all of them correctly. I have learnt that water in moderation and plenty of sunlight with some fertilizer are key to keeping them alive and growing. Pot size also makes a difference.

I thought #2 maybe could be a Peace Lily

#5 might be a Kalanchoe.

Thank you Daisy. I know number 5 used have petals/flowers that would bloom. They haven't bloomed in a while. I may need to fertilize it.

I do think #1 is a Peperomia but not necessarily obtusifolia species. Maybe scandens or orba, something with smaller, less round leaves. Not fixing on a sense of scale from that pic. It could be bigger than my impression of it.

Also compare the Dracaena to 'Limelight'
Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans 'Limelight')

The last looks like Kalanchoe blossfeldiana:
