    A friend of mine was hoping to identify these plants that have been left in her care over the summer so that she can take better care of them.

    The first is about 12'' tall, has vibrant purply-red stems and lime green leaves. She says it droops the moment it needs to be watered, but perks up soon afterwards.

    The second is a medley of plants all in one pot. I know there's english ivy, wandering jew, and a dracaena marginata in there, but I'm not sure what the other tree is. I'm trying to convince her that it's a better idea to split up the plants, especially the dracaena and the tree, since the dracaena isn't looking too hot and the pot is pretty small. Any other pointers? I know that the ivy and wandering jew are both hardy plants.

    Not sure on the first plant. The tree in the second photo looks like a 'Ficus lyrata' Fiddleleaf Fig
