  • Plant ID?

    I received two plants from my sister, cuttings from a prolific plant she's had for a while but has no idea what it is or where it came from. The larger plant initially looked similar to the smaller one but was struggling more, so I put it on the balcony for more sun and it promptly started growing massive leaves outward, though it hasn't gained much height. The smaller one I left on my fridge where it hasn't grown very sturdy and is very pale compared to the other but definitely shows vertical aspirations, being now 2-3x the height I got it at, though it keeps trying to tip over and I have to keep rotating it. On the other hand, the plant my sister has is not vertical at all, with stalks sprawling out of the pot, trailing down for almost a foot before curling back upwards, leaves of a size much more comparable to my smaller plant than my larger all along. So perhaps my fridgeplant's tendency to lean is something I should allow.

  • Alana T. Except now I can’t figure out how to upload the picture of the larger plant. But it’s a little shorter, and the leaves are about 4-6x as large and very dense, so much so that you can’t see the trunk/stem/centre of the plant. I thought the pic of the smaller plant might be better for ID since you can clearly see the leaf arrangement and structure Friday October 19 at 06:32
