...with what looks like Spathiphyllum (peace lily) in the last pic. The top pic is too small to see well, to my eye.

If you're in doubt about the suggestions, try taking pics after it gets dark, so there's no glare behind plants in the last pic, and adding a bigger pic of the first plants (if they are 2 different pots.)

I think you are right Tiffany. What I thought was the leaf was just the stalks. After closer inspection is see the broad leaves in the background.

I'm thinking the first one is actually a Ponytail Palm - I lightened them up a bit.

I don't see a flower in either photo and with my eyes it's hard to tell which plants but the first one might very well be a Spider Plant (Chlorophytum): Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

The last one does look to be a Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum): Peace Lilies (Spathiphyllum)

The 2nd photo shows a strap-leaved plant in front of a Spathiphyllum.

When I lightened up the first one and resized it bigger I'm really thinking I can see a caudice at the bottom.

Dave: I do think I see the strap leaf plant in that photo; appears to be two separate plants in that container.

Anne: I think I see a caudice in that one picture too so maybe it is Pony Tail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata) but the leaves sure look light in color. I think I also see a striped looking leaf on the lower right too so I wonder if it could possibly be this one: Pony Tail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata 'Gold Star')

Maybe if Kathy could upload a few pictures taken from a distance we could tell more.

First one is Ponytail Palm, looks like one in too low of light. It will make their growth weak and whitish or light-colored like this.

Second one is likely a Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum). I don't think it's two plants in one pot, I think it's all the same plant (or multiples of the same plant in one pot). Look at the broad leaf on the far left and follow its stem - it leads right back to the base of the plant in the front of the pic where the seemingly "strap leaves" originate. The strap-like leaves are probably just broad leaves where we can only see the stem portion or the broad side is sideways to the camera viewpoint making them appear strap-like.

For Kathy to compare to her plant, I found another variegated "Ponytail Palm" photo in the database:

Pony Tail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata var. albomarginata 'Yellow Star')

Mary, I'm confused. The plant in your very first two photos at the top of the page look to be a Pony Tail Palm, which has a bulb at it's base:
Pony Tail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata 'Gold Star')
Pony Tail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata var. albomarginata 'Yellow Star')

The plant in your third photo appears to be Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum wallisii) Have you removed the soil from this plant and you're saying it has a bulb with roots emerging from the bulb? For comparison, here are some photos of roots of Peace Lily: https://www.google.com/search?q=Spathiphyllum+root+images&bi...
