/sigh what are these?



I know they aren't fully aquatic so what are my options here? Are they partially aquatic or should I just go put it in a planter and put it on my desk? Can either of them be floated or should I get a large piece of decor and attach these to them?

the one in the front is dracaena. the other...arrow head or caladium? the desk option is best for dracaena. the other may do o.k. growing emersed. out the top of your filter maybe.

They also gave me bamboo which I assume is lucky bamboo.

The tag reads..

Dracaena
Spathiphyllum
Ophiopogon
Trichomanes
Syngoium

I knew the bamboo wasn't aquatic so I toss it into my filter xD

the plant in back looks just like a lotus plant, I picked up one last week myself.

They are aquarium safe.

That's good at least. I'd be pretty bummed if I came home with zero aquatics.

Putting 'Syngonium' into Google which was what you said your tag(s) read, gives you what looks like the background plant in your picture.

Seems to be a terrestrial plant, may be able to be kept the same way as pothos though.

Have you get any better photos of it?

Anything variegated is generally a terrestrial plant, also when you take the plant out of the water a true aquatic will generally not be able to stand upright on its own whereas a terrestrial plant will.

Exceptions to this would be anubias as they grow emersed in their native habitat, and emersed grown aquatics such as crypts or sword plants. However, these plants will be able to make the transition to a full submersed environment while a terrestrial plant cannot.

Generally, if a plant looks like it belongs in a pot, it probably does.
