Hey GW friends,

ain't been on in a while and my clay garden has gone to s**t looking so bad i gave up on it ending of summer the ground was so hard to work it was a nightmare.

Any how Im going to stop going on about how unhappy i am with it and do something else. 

so I decide to see what house plant i can get going buy getting cuts from my work place plants as they have so many massive indoor plants. 

see pics if you can help me id them that would be great 



once I know what they are I am going to go search on how to take cuts .

thanks 

Marvel

    Top one looks like a neglected citrus of some sort.
    Dracaena

    3rd one a bamboo of some sort I think, what do the stems look like?
    Bottom one dumb cane aka Dieffenbachia

    My best guess is

    1.  Ficus elastic (rubber plant) - to check, carefully scrape off a little bit of bark.  If it's a rubber plant, white latex will seep out (have a tissue handy to catch any drips and try not to get it on your skin - some folks react to it).

    2. Dracaena, possibly demerensis but there are many different types.

    3. Looks like a fan palm, possibly Chamaerops Humilis.

    4. I think it's Aglaonema (Chinese evergreen) - possibly the variety "Silver Queen".

    I'm not even close to wonderful but I've had quite a lot of house (and office) plants in my time!
