Distinguishing Between Pothos and Philodendron

I have been going around in circles trying to figure out which of these is a pothos or a philodendron or if these are just something else entirely. All were in a jar of water that were given to me and I call them the mystery plants.

Please help steer me in the right direction.
1. philodendron?
2. golden pothos?
3. lemon lime philodendron?
4. pothos or philodendron?
5. other?
6. golden pothos?
7. jade pothos?
8. golden pothos?

Thanks!

Pothos has a larger, waxier leaf. Philodendron has a dainty stem. My guess is that you have a heart shaped philodendron.

This is an ongoing debate and there are dozens of websites that talk about the differences.

This is just one of many and each one is more confusing than the next because there are adult leaves, juvenile leaves, under watered issues, over watered issues etc....see the article on the link:

I say send a photo to the experts at your local home extension and let them give the final blessing on what you have!!

The finder is easy to use if you are in the US. Post back what you learn:

Thanks for the suggestion Pghgirl40! I was going around in circles trying to figure them out based on probably those same websites. I have found the local extension information needed for the Master Gardner's in my area and will send off an email. If I can get some information I will post some updates on what I learn.

Houseplant411 is a great site and I have utilized it for all of the plants that I have been able to identify.
