I was given a basket full of houseplants, I was able to find the name of a few plants that I have in there.
I have a dragon tree, african mask, moses in the cradle, umbrella tree, and I think a boston fern.
I need help knowing what the other 3 are, so I know how to take care of tthem.
Here are pictures of these 3 plants

Would it be possible to post a better photo for the second plant?

|Hi and welcome. Looks like you've got answers to two out of three of your mystery plants. |
The second picture is out of focus, but even if it were better, not sure we can tell what that is from the one big old leaf. You might have to grow it for another few weeks until you have some good fresh leaves to show us. That leaf is really in rough shape, burnt at the edges etc.
It looks like it might be a Begonia cutting that someone has rooted but it hasn't really got going yet. Keep it warm but not too wet, and in good light but no direct sun. Post another picture as soon as you have some new leaves, please! Our curiosity is piqued.

|Yes, with the above suggestions. Another possibility for the 2nd photo of the leaf is African Violet. |
African Violets (Saintpaulia)
Do keep us posted and to ATP. Happy gardening!

|The other plant at the top of pic 2, the Tradescantia spathacea (Moses in the cradle/oyster plant,) looks like it could use a bit more light (increased gradually.) |

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

|Thank you very much for answering my question. I will certainly post a better picture of plant #2 when it gets new leaves.|
