Gotta catch ’em all

It’s a jungle in here already! But whenever I see plants that I don’t have, I want a cutting to propagate! Lately I’ve gathered a lot of cuttings. I don’t know where to put them all yet but I’m so excited. I now have plants to fill my empty pots. (I always have extra pots for just in case.)

Here’s the rundown of my new Pokemon:
Begonia of some sort
Begonia ("Tea Rose" maybe)
It’s different from the current begonia I have. The new one has thicker, fuzzy, almost succulent-like leaves with no variagation. It grows short and squatty. The one I have grows long and tall, has thin, smooth polka-dot patterned leaves. The leaves are smaller too on this new one. Maybe 5-6″ instead of 11″ or so on my old one. Maybe after if blooms I’ll be able to better identify this variety.

Philodendron Silver
Philodendron Silver
Beautiful variegation on the leaves.

Micans Philodendron
Micans Philodendron
Almost a purply dark green color with some velvety fuzz. I now have 4 varieties of philodendrons. The other two are Philodendron Scandens (Heartleaf) and Philodendron grazielae (brighter green leaves that are almost succulent-like with thicker firmer stems).

English Ivy
English Ivy?
At least I think it’s an English Ivy.

Purple Passion
Purple Passion
I’ve killed one of these before. I left it in water to just grow in a vase. It needs to be potted eventually.

Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen) Silver Bay –
Aglaonema (Silver Bay?)
Again, I’m relying on Google pictures to help me identify this thing. I’m not totally sure it’s a Silver Bay but I’m quite sure it’s an aglaonema. And this is my third variety of Chinese Evergreen. I love the different leaf variegation on each one. They are beautiful plants and so easy to care for and propagate.
