    It looks very similar to the orange seedling that my brothers and I started years ago. Hope you find the answer:).

  2. Chelle Y. says:

    I kid every plant that comes into my house. Well, not intentionally, but I do not have a green thumb.

    I do have a beautiful fake plant. 🙂

  3. Chelle Y. says:

    Opps, I meant kill, not “kid.”

  4. Hazelnut says:

    Not sure what that is. My grandmother, mother and sisters have had many of the snake’s tongue, we called it devil’s tongue – it has lots of names.

  5. Joyce says:

    Tamy – Yes; the plant is top-heavy and should probably be repotted, but it doesn’t seem to mind being crowded.

    Claudia – I don’t think it’s a rubber tree (not positive, though).

    Sandy – I love spider plants; they are supposed to be good for the atmosphere of the home.

    Mo – I think I may just take this plant to the nursery and ask them, “What IS this plant?!”

    Kathie – Maybe so; I just don’t know. My book doesn’t give a close up of the orange tree’s leaves.

    Chelle – Artificial plants do save time. 🙂

    Hazelnut – The snake plant does so well. My plants are about 25 years old.

    Thank you all for your comments!
