New acquisitions

I went to visit a friend in Can Tho and came back with two basketfuls of plants yesterday. Among them are hoya cuttings, bromeliads and some tropicals.
One of the hoya cuttings I like best is Hoya mindorensis. I felt so lucky I could get a named variety for once.

Other cuttings are not yet identifiable due to lack of blooms.
I also got three very attractive bromeliad crypanthus. I especially like their stripe pattern and bold color.

I don't know the names of the tropicals, unfortunately, but they all look very lovely.

If any visitor to my blog happens to know the ID of any of these plants, please give me a ring.

Tropical #5 (third from bottom)might be Colocasia 'Illustris' and #6 (next to last pic) might be Philodendron selloum.

Thanks for the ID, Nell. Off to make labels for them now.
