Only guessing here. First one Tradescantia, I'm not sure of the species. The second a species of Musa

Yep, I agree with Musa - it's a Banana plant!

...and I just looked again...there are two plants in that pot. The Banana is the taller of the two.

The other is a Xanthosoma.
Elephant Ears (Xanthosoma) (Xanthosoma)

Lancegoldman, it's best to start a new thread for each new plant. That will draw more attention to each ID.
