    If the second one is in fact Dracaena sanderiana, should I remove it from the soil it's currently potted in? This one is actually a coworker's plant who gave it to me to try and figure out why it hasn't been doing so well since we moved from one building to another. The original spot had fairly low light, the new place is much brighter with a lot of artificial light.

    As for the first one, I did have it in a shadier, northern facing window awhile back and it didn't seem to do very well. I'll move it a bit further away from the window it's currently near. Thanks!

    The bottom two pictures are of the same plant and it is a philodendron, somewhat overgrown. The leaves are sparse and spread out, indicating a lack of light. If you take cuttings of it, it will root readily, its a vining plant. There are many varieties, large leaved, small leaved, colors, etc. Very easy standard houseplant. It doesn't need high light, but should have moderate like, like a east window or slightly less. Mine grows fine under lights or outside in the shade in the summer (very hot and sunny here). Regular potting soil, water when it is almost dry, feed it house plant food every so often.
