Congrats on your new Plants...not positive,still learning(so much to learn)...the first one looks like Carnosa, the second one with the white edges on the leaves looks like Carnosa Krimson Queen? I just LOVE your gold fish plant, its beautiful! I've been looking for one locally for over two years...I guess they just don't sell them in my area :o(

Enjoy them!

I second the ID of Hoya carnosa and Hoya carnosa Krimson Queen. Nice Brug by the way!

Pug look on The Violet Barn's site for Gesneriads and you should find a lipstick (Aeschynanthus) or goldfish (Coulmnea) species or two. You can get some really nice species from Gesneriad nurseries.

Thanks Mike, I'm really hoping to find them locally if I can, because I hate paying shipping. I save those for hoyas,lol...
But if I really get desperate I will check out those sites you recommended, thanks!

Thanks for the nice offer hong! I will see if I can find a small rooted plant...I've not had much success at rooting goldfish for some reason :o(

Appreciate it though!
