Houseplant help

I was crushed when I sold/gave away all my houseplants when we moved up here. I am determined to bring some back with me, but I need their common and scientific names

I will post pics of the ones I have no clue about and of course I already packed up my houseplants books!

Big Leaf is a philodendron, and Pretty is a false aralia.

The others are escaping me for the moment, but I'll get back to you if I think of them.

Okay, false aralia is Dizygotheca.

I think Who is Swedish ivy, or some sort of Plectranthus sp.

No idea on your nifty pea pod or your pepper.

Thanks for the help. Pea pod has been driving me nuts. I guess I could load them up and head over to the local nursery if needed.

ARGH!!! I have most of those... except the pea or pepper...
Mine dont look near as pretty as yours, I will look for the tags that came with mine. I know they are around here somewhere
Kinda off topic, but are you going to be able to get all your critters into the states when you move? How does that work? Do they have to quarantine them? Or is it pretty easy?

Our stupid birds need to be looked at by a vet at the boarder, but the rodents, cats and fish should get through with no problems. The US does not have a quarantine policy that I know of. I knew some students back in Idaho that were from Isreal. They picked the US because they could bring their dogs and no QT time.

Pea pod and pepper are proving harder than I thought. I am bringing them to the nursery today, because I have no idea
