Do either of these plants look familiar to anyone? I saw them at my local HD with no tags and the "help" wasn't much.

The first ones a calla, there's so many that's there's no tellin what it could be, but it looks suspiciously like my calla Hercules, as you might imagine, they get big!

No idea on the second one, it's not an aroid, but is really attractive, despite that... Rolling on the floor laughing

They look to be in good shape, what are they priced at?

The second one is a variegated Ficus species - I can't say which species because I'm not up on Ficus as I am on many aroids, but I've seen the all-green type of that Ficus here in south Florida.

Swayback is correct about the first one - Calla for sure.

I agree re: the Calla. Doesn't look exactly like any of mine with the maculate leaves. If it were immaculate I'd say Z. aethiopica, but with the spots 'Hercules' seems likely. If at some point you can post a photo of the corm/rhizome we can confirm if it's a Z. aethiopica variety @SoCalDawg.
