  • Which type of pothos?
    I got this at Home Depot for $4! Do you think it’s pearls and jade? Manjula?

      dekadaye thank you all for helping me identify this ! home depot/costa farms labeled it pearls and jade, but after looking at pictures online, i knew that couldnt be correct. i didnt think it was marble because a few of the leaves are so white!

      anyway, i'm very happy with my marble pothos. it wasnt in the best shape when i found it - very back of the shelf and very dry. i'm hoping it puts out a new leave soon so i know it's okay.

    I've had this plant for almost a year but I'm not sure what it is. Any ideas?
  • What is this?
    I bought this plant about 6 months ago and have no idea what it is. When I got it, it was much fuller and had some pink flowers. Would love to know what is is so I can work on caring for it better!

      Pei it's a cyclamen (Herbaceous, perennial plant) flowering plant. These are usually best to live outdoor vs indoor tbh!
  • What is this plant??
    Hello everyone! This plant was my great great grandmother ‘s and we’ve made new plants from the cuttings for over 100 y<img alt="">ears but no one knows what kind of plant it is and I would love to find out if anyone has any ideas! Thanks 🙂<img alt=""> <img alt=""><br><img alt=""><img alt="">Also I can’t figure out how to upload a picture how do I do it!?<br>
  • What am I?
    This guy has been on my desk at work since I started 3 years ago.  I feel like recently he hasn't been as happy as he usually is, so I am hoping someone can help me identify him so I can be sure to give him the proper care. Thank you!

      Pei He looks like a happy Hoya plant (at least to me :). Why do you think it's not been happy?
  • what kind of plant am I?
    This plant is in my office. I can tell the maintenance guys overwater it. It was looking pretty grim until I fertilized it at the same time I was fertilizing my desk plants - it perked up and now it looks a lot better. What is it? Maybe I can take care of it on the sly.

      Nicole It looks to me like it could be a peace lily. I attached a picture of mine for comparison.

    Any ideas what kind of plant this is? It was only labeled "Plant" and that was too intriguing to not bite. <img alt="" src="http://">

      Pei I am it's a type of succulents, just not 100% sure the name. It looks like it needs to be repot!

      Pei It's a dieffenbachia, AKA dumb cane!

  • what is this plant?
    ive had this plant for a while and i don’t know what it is called
      • 1
      Pei Yup my vote is a Gasteria succulent too. It's very similar to Aloes and you want to give it 5-6 hours direct light and water twice a month. The leaves would look wrinkly, like your hands in the water for too long, when it's thirsty!

      Erin Looks like a Gasteria succulent, but not positive which variety! Very similar to aloes and haworthia. Loves bright direct light and not a lot of water.
  • Plant ID and care tips!?
    Hi! I received a cutting of this plant and am trying to figure out 1) what it is 2) how to pot/plant it and 3) how to care for it (how much water, light, when to repot, size of pot needed, humidity needed?!)<br>lots of questions!<br>can anyone help?

      PlntNrd That’s a pink or pastel Duckfoot Coleus. Needs full sun, usually grown outdoors. It looks like yours is craving more sun than it’s currently getting.
  • A gift from my grandma — what's this plant?
    Can anyone help identify? It's got what look like faded spots on its long leaves and reddish/purplish stems. I believe it might be low-light (but please correct me if I'm wrong).<br><br>I received this plant from my grandmother recently and I'm planning on repotting it soon. I want to make sure to use the right soil and take good care of it so any advice would be helpful :)<br><br><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt=""><img alt="">
