Greene, plantladylin.
Did i get the post correct this time? I remember last time I wasnt posting to this correct page, so I'm correcting as I learn. I did a Single post per plant, is this how its preferred to be posted here? ? Correct?
Also I just bought the house plants you seen on line from a women who could no longer keep all her plants.
So idk much about these plants. So any info you may have on any of the plants I posted would be very useful to me.
One of my worries is everyone of these plants are root bound. Idk how it hasnt caused a problem before now.. any tips on fixing this or should I leave them alone? The roots are very very very tight and in a bound inside the pots. As if they have been in same pot for a very very long time.
I bought 9 plants i gave my daughter half and I kept half. Now we are researching all of them so we can give them proper care ect.
As always thanks for any and all your help both of you are always so awesome! !!

I wouldn't rule out Yucca elephantipes/gigantea for this one, from this pic.

Yes it does resembles Yucca, although I am leaning towards Dracaena, (looks like D Cambodiana or allied) the trunk is too smooth.
PamelaLynn77, can you show detail of leaf margin, does it has tiny teeth? also leaf tips, is it spiny (may be soft but still spiny)? if yes then this is Yucca, but if margin very smooth (no tiny teeth "at all") and tips are very soft (not spiny "at all") it would likely be Dracaena.
edited: googling, Yucca trunk can also be that smooth, so yes, now I,m leaning to neutral zone, could also be Yucca, really need detail info or photos from OP.

It has ROUGH like edges to the touch, otherwise I don't see any thing close to teeth like. The texture of the leaves are VERY coarse to touch. It actually feels as if the edges will cut you if rubbed wrong.

Thank you for adding the photos. Then Yucca it is, that rough almost like going to cut your skin things is definitely Yucca I believes.

I agree it looks more Yucca, which has sharp, stiff and somewhat blade-like leaf edge. New leaf growth comes from the center tip of each branch. It will grow taller branches if given a chance to grow outdoors with more light, as it dries up older lower leaves. Mine grows outdoors year round.
