Please help me identify

I received a few pups from a friend, they have grown into beautiful plants. This is one of the smaller one, everyone admires them and want a pup and the name. I gave away pups, but I have no idea its called nor am I having any luck finding on the net.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Melody! :)

We'll be happy to do whatever we can to help you ID your plants, but we'll have to see them in order to do so. Can you post some clear close-up photos of the plants for us?

If you aren't familiar with how to post pictures on forums, you can find instructions [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3724]here[/url].

Melody, here's a walkthrough for posting pictures with a Mac.

First, visit Photobucket.com and sign up.

Drag the photos you want to share out of iPhoto onto the desktop.

Upload the photos from the desktop - this is very easy and intuitive with PBucket.

Once the photos are uploaded, look for the IMG code for BB (hover your mouse over the thumbnail to get the menu.

Paste that line of code into the reply box here, and voila! You've got a picture. The code looks something like what's pointed to in the image below.

Hopefully this will allow everyone to view, sorry for the confusion.

OK, Plant 1423/1421 is Kalanchoe gasteris-bonnerii, also called Donkey Ears. It's one of my favourite Kalanchoes.

The other plant in the pot with it is one of the Holiday Cacti; which one is difficult to tell without the flowers.

That one lorax can't identify sure is an unusual looking plant? Too bad nobody knows what it is?? Looks like it would be fun to add to a collection.

Green Mantis, are you asking about the plant in the background? It looks to me like it might be an angelwing begonia.

No Kisal, I was asking about the other big spotted plant. Don't know what it is, but it does look interesting............... Mind you I went on a plant buying spree ( 7 new plants) the other day, and could have still added more. Everything is so interesting..Plus I didn't even get to the garden centre that sells the rope hoya's. Can't wait to get in there. We just ran out of time, so couldn't go. But soon!!........I love all the plants!!! :D

That was the first one lorax identified. There are 2 photos of it, one is just a close-up of a leaf. :)

Very easy-care plants, Kalanchoes! Treat them as you would Aloe or other similar succulents - bright indirect light, water when they're dry. They thrive on neglect, and every once in a while they bloom, which is usually pretty spectacular.
