|Hello. I am new to taking care of plants. Does anyone know what kind these are? The pink one has one little guy looking a bit droopy and the green hanging plant seems to be limp and has brown spots!

The first is Celosia and the second is a Philodendron.

#1 Appears to be a variety of Cockscomb (Celosia argentea)
#2 Is Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron hederaceum var. oxycardium)

|The Celosia needs lots of indoor sun and the soil should be kept moist.
The Philodendron has a few physically damaged leaves that can be trimmed off. They are not a sign of any disease. Keep it away from direct sun, but otherwise, provide lots of bright indirect light. Water when the top half-inch of soil is dry.
