    We got this as a house warming gift, but I am unsure the name of the plant (it's the one on the left). It's also falling over and I'm unsure how to care for it! I just moved it to a bigger pot and added some support until it gets a little stronger- any advice?

    Looks like a Dieffenbachia.

    You also have Aloe barbadensis, A beautiful one, in the top right corner. My Alice would love for me to have that plant... A sea onion, Bowiea volubilis, bottom right. That is a bulb and will go to rest. Middle right is Sempervivum tectorum..or something close to that.

    I agree it's a dieffenbachia, though I've never seen one grown that way, with all the stems intertwined. No wonder it needs support.
