If you don't mind following the links, can you identify any of these plants? Thanks.

One and two are pics of a grass like plant I found growing in my garden. I put it in a pot and placed it where it is now, by the pond. Any ideas?

Three to five are pics of two small plants I bought cheap at a local store (Tamworth, UK) in tiny pots. They were damaged and i brought them home and re-potted them. The one with the spiky, aloe type leaves is about five inches high, the other about five or six inches high. Thanks again.

(If anybody can help with posting images rather than links I would be grateful!)

mystery plants and posting photos

I took a look at your photos and could not identify any of the plants unfortunately. The two small ones are probably tropical house plants. I actually have one in my house very much like the spikey one, but I don't know it's name. It came in a dish garden and has grown taller and taller until it has fallen over and now grows horizontally. The other one looks like some type of ivy perhaps.

To post photos instead of links, I think you need to have your pictures stored on your system so that they can be uploaded to the Forum by using the browse and attach feature at the bottom of the reply screen. Just scroll down and you will see it. I'm not sure if it will work with sites like Fliker, but it's worth a try. Actually, I think Mark had the same problem initially, so perhaps he can offer some assistance.

I am always curious about challenges like that.However with dial-up i was unable to see the pictures,so it would be good if you could manage to put them on.See if you can put them into folders in 'My Pictures'first,as Faith said.As long as they are not too large,you should be able to post them here -the instructions are in 'Add an attachmnet'under the message box.
Good luck!
Dixie.

Are you on a Mac? Using I-photo?

If so, I can tell you how I finally managed to post photo files small enough to work here. Just let me know.

If you haven't seen them yet Dixie here is a quick copy and paste FYI. These are the 3 main pix...

The first one looks like it could be a common rush?
The others maybe indoor, as Faith says. I have had an indoor Hibiscus which looked pretty much identical to #3...

Have you had any luck finding out for sure yet?

Could #2 be an Aspidestra?

Well, I have been forced to resort to my Taylor's Guide to Houseplants and have come up with some viable options for nos. 2 and 3. No. 3 could be either a Polyscias balfouriana (Arailia) or a Fatshedera lizei (Aralia Ivy). No. 2 bears the closest resemblance to Dracaena deremensis. I agree with Pumpkin that No. 1 is probably a common rush. I have lots of them growing in the marshy areas on my farm.
