Can this plant be rooted from one of its leaves? Iím asking since it is a tree-like plant. And I wasnt sure if it would grow its tree-like "stalk" by rooting it from a leave??
And do you know the common name for this?

Do you know the common name for this plant?

hi and welcome to the forum! there's some wonderful folks around here that would love to help you. I'm sorry but I can't really help with identifying these plants for you but I can help a little bit though. You may want to repost your pics in the mystery plant forum and ask there what your plants are. about the rooting stuff i don't know? sorry i couldn't be of much help!

the first pic is an scheffelera or "umbrella tree"
from australia i believe. i dont think a leaf would root but i do believe that you can do what thay call air layering or you can cut the "trunk" into 3 pieces take the top of the plant and root that part. lay the middle section on some good soil and multiple plants should start from that,and the piece still in dirt with the roots cover the top with some moss,tie a little plastic bag around it and you should see new growth shortly.ahhh take a breath with me i get motor mouth sometimes [Wink] . the 2nd picture is (i think) a philodendron. the selloum type well i hope that i was able to give you a little bit of help [grin]

schefffleras generally only root from "green wood" or "soft wood" cuttings. and they take forever, but are worth it.

The second plant looks like some kind of philodendron to me.

Yes, the second pic of a philodendron. We have one bigger than that and it lives outside during the summer under a tree. In the winter (here from late Nov/early December to late March), it's in the carport that's enclosed with corrigated plastic. The temps get in the low 40's and it doens't mind. Also, I maybe water it once while it's indoors. They're very cool plants - we love ours.
