Help me I.D. a few new plants?

Ended up going to a old family friend's house and farm yesterday....only to come back with some vegetables from her garden, a doz. fresh eggs, some of their honey....and some free aquarium plants! I just brought them home and threw them in a spare tank for now, till I get 15 g. and have the patience to transfer everything. :)

While I know she gave me some java moss and java fern, I have no clue what two of these other guys are. Any ideas?

The one with the long blades are all connected, and the little sprig of ...whatever it is... is kinda translucent.

(Oh, and ignore the random bulb....I just tossed it out of my main tank cuz it got in the way earlier.)

And I dunno, maybe the first is bolbitis heudelotii (african waterfern)?

As for the mother plant....I'm not so sure? She had a 50 gal and a majority of the leaves reached the top.

Oh, and my puppy decided to step on my laptop while I was posting. I guess he thinks he's now a cat? He typed this to you.... ;p[pppp[
