Better picture of the shoots. Plus the shoots are larger and showing a bit of color.

As a side note, there are four other plants in the picture. Can you name them?

I get the feeling from your picture that you like variegation in plants?

Three of the plants in the photo are not variegated. Of the two that are, one I am keeping for a friend and the other was a rescue from a deserted house. The rescue also included Aloe vera, Purple Inch Plant, Wandering Jew and a variegated Wandering Jew.

Well it must be me then. My eye is attracted to variegation. Especially green and white.

Actually I don't think variegation is quite the right word for the one Wandering Jew. More of a reddish and silver coloration to the leaves and stems. http://www.denverplants.com/foliage/html/jewzeb.htm

Foxd,

I was using this definition from Merrium-Webster:

[b]variegated: having discrete markings of different colors <variegated>

But I don't see what I call a "wandering jew" in your picture, and my of a "wandering jew" plant matches your link. I do see what I call a variegated spider plant behind your bamboo seedling pot. In the lower right corner of your picture there is a variegated leafed plant. The stems (branches) look to be of a woody plant and unlike the succulent stems of a "wandering jew".

Correct, there is no Wandering Jew in the picture. Also correct, there are two variegated Spider Plants in the background.

A clue to the identity of the variegated leafed tree is that Michael Moore ran one for a political office.

As for one of the other plants, I will leave a clue elsewhere on this board.
