Need To Identify Two Houseplants

I've just developed an interest in houseplants. I need help identifying two.

#1 has long, ridged stalk, and need support. All leaves are bunched at top.
Burgundy stems and burgundy-lined, dark green leaves.

#2 is more like a vine. It has pink flowers and a delicate fur on the leaves. It turns deep purple in direct sunlight, green otherwise. The stems are fragile and break, but the plant propagates easily. The stems are fleshy.

This is one of the few sites I've found where I can upload pics. I'm thrilled.

Should you need more/better photos, let me know.

Thanks!

Welcome to the Planted Tank forum! Just the right place for all your houseplant questions!

The first one reminds me of a Cordyline, not 100% sure though. The second one is Tradescantia purpurea.
