What plants are these?

I got two plants from PetSmart today.. one was marked as a "assorted potted plant" which is the long grassy one in the pot, clearly lol... the other was labeled as "assorted sword". The "assorted sword" has acouple long stems that look like they might have flowers of some sort on it, i thought it was some sort of an Anubias but the lady who worked there told me it wasn't, though she's been wrong before.

Can anyone tell me what these two are? I have a planted tank already that's doing amazingly well with two different anubias, an amazon sword and some marimo, these will be going into that tank after their week of qt.


I can take more photos if need be.

Yeah, the grassy one is way tall and unfortunately was just listed as a potted plant. I'm glad the other is a sword, thank you for telling me. I figured it probably was since it doesn't look like any type of Anubias i've seen. It also seems to be in great shape which is also awesome.

It does look alot like a melon sword, but from what photos i've seen of those they also have a red tinge to them, these do not. Maybe once they are planted and are getting good light they will turn more of that maroon red color?

@Mo, I just looked up photos of the Mondo grass and from what i can tell Mondo looks like it kinda looks like grass. It has leaf like... leaves? lol. This one is more like pine needles, long, thin and don't take a leaf like shape. I'll try and get acouple more photos.
