One of our new members is hoping someone might help with identifying these little plants she got from her Mom. Any ideas?

Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Not sure but

#2 reminds me of: Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena braunii)

#3 reminds me of: Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema commutatum)

#1 is an opuntia, prickly pear of some sort...it looks to be spineless...there's so many best of luck with a proper ID...
The good news is the care is simple and pretty universal for all opuntia...
Lots of sun, make sure it dries out between waterings...

It will never grow much in that pot, come spring find it atleast a one gallon pot and replant it in a fast draining mix.
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
