not a mutation. It's what happens when stems are cut, they produce several to replace the one

it doesn't matter what you do with the leaves, they'll drop off eventually. Take the apples off, the plants will have enough to do just staying alive.

Coum and hederifloium are well worth growing outdoors. I think they're nicer than the indoor ones and far less miffy. Hederifolium are just coming into flower now and coum will arrive in January. Hederifolium flower for months, then come into leaf,leaves are very pretty

Various questions and plant IDs

Malva moschata is perennial, easy from seed and comes in pink as well

I think both labels may belong to the ricinus. Species, Ricinus communis, cultivar 'Atropurpurea'

the orange one, a begonia I think

and the white after that, a saponaria

the variegated stuff under the equisetum is worse than ivy, it Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon' very invasive

It also has defects, the sides are much too steep for one. We'd do it differently if we were starting again.

my garden cyclamen are just waking up, the C. hederifolia that is, nothing else.

I'm the kiss of death to a house plant but I know that those sort don't like it too warm, or sunny, or too much water.

Yes, they look very sad wakeshine.

Unknown plant...Please help!
