Help identifying plants


I need some help identifying these plants.I received these plants from a coworker today and she had no idea what they are. If any of you know what they are that would be great.






And yes, I know I have a snail problem, trust me I know. I just picked up a 50gal tank today and i'm going to be upgrading soon so I'm going to soak all my plants before setting up the new tank.

Thanks for the help.

They both look like nonaquatic plants. The first seems to be Dracaena sanderiana, the second Trichomanes javanicum.

Unfortunately, those are both indeed non-aquatic plants.
They will eventually rot if kept submerged.

Yes, as others have already mentioned, these are house plants, and will die if submerged.

DARN THOSE people who sold it to the store, who didnt know any better, who sold it to me, who didn't know any better. this is when u need a cell phone with internet access, so that you can look up stuff b4 u spend the money-tear apart the container- and plant it underwater!
well i hope it lasts until the weekend, bcuz i don't have the time to undo it now, as i am too busy pretending to be busy!

the store that sold it to you knew better. you didnt and thats all that mattered to them

it'll last till this weekend. they can last a little longer than you might expect. but will die eventually

take a look at these. this is the best list of non aquatics that i know of

When you buy them at petco the jars are actually labeled as non-aquatic, but they're sold in the aquarium section (because of the reptile stuff, maybe?)...so there are plenty of people that don't pay very close attention. Like your coworker, lol.
