The twisty one. I got it from a flower arrangement, it was just a twig but it grew roots and now leaves.

Another picture

I will take a shot but then I might question that ID as I seem to see two different leaf shapes? Is that true or just a figment of my ID?
The one leaf says "phildendrom" to me. They are a very common house plant that does grow easy and very hardy. But there are at least a dozen different varieties so more looking may be needed to pin it down better. I think of them as having a somewhat "teardrop" shape but then I think I see a lance shaped leaf also??? Any chance of being two plants mixed.
Another part of my doubt is that the stem in places seems too woody looking while at other places is teems right. I think of a green somewhat soft vine, rather than woody looking?

The plant I am asking about is the Woody one. The background plants are pathos and arrow head plants.

Salix matsudana? If so, it will end up a tree! (But will also like wetlands) You might be able to prune it to stay small, not sure if they take to it well.
