Hi Amber ~

The first one looks to me to be a very old african violet? Have you had it a long time? I had one just like that, that was my great aunts and it lived for about 36 years before dying after my mom insisted that I bring it to my house instead of leaving it where it was happy in her's... They really like an east facing window and do not like to be wet.

The second is a very happy looking dracaena. I also have a few of these, and have taken huge cuttings from them and started new plants. They are fine in low light and kept just slightly moist.

Actually I was just given the 1st plant. I have another African Voilet that looks nothing like it, so I wasn't sure...And I love the Dracaena...I wasn't sure of it's name though.
Thanks a BUNCH for your help.

The second plant looks like a Dieffenbachia.

You're soooooo right, Cricket! [kissies]

My mistake - oh, well... I knew it was one of the "D" plants! [Embarrassed] [dunno] [nutz]

Well...I have one of those, and didn't know it was even a "D" plant!
(I need to learn the names of all my plants and MARK them so I don't forget what they are!)

Well...they are alive...I guess that counts for something. [Embarrassed] [Big Grin]

there is a ruffle leaved african violet, and many times when one get older, the leaves get frilly.

Although I made a mistake with the second one, I'm pretty sure about the african violet.

lynne, some draceanas have leaves like that diffenbachia. there was a discussion in mystery about one that looked like a chinese evergreen.
by Will Creed on October 17, 2005 05:55 AM
I am quite sure it is an African violet.

Cindy - How your plants look is more important than what you call them!

Jiffy - If I correctly recall that plant ID in Mystery that you referred to, I believe it was incorrectly identified as a Dieffenbachia when in fact it was an Aglaonema as Gardencrazy pointed out.
