OK, so I got this batch of plants in today, and the packages were not marked, and there was no invoice and I don't know exactly what I got, and/or how to plant them. I only ordered 4 things, but some of these I can't distinguish between to tell what's what.

The plants are currently sitting on the table, and I wrapped them in wet newspaper.

Lot 1

Plant 1
I'm pretty sure plant 1 is a java fern. I've read that you are supposed to tie these to objects, but it looks like it has roots?

Plant 2
I'm assuming this is a Cryptocoryne Wendtii De Witt, but I'm not sure.

Plant 3
OK, I know this is Ricca. Do I just tie this to something? Rocks, driftwood?

Plants 4
I have no idea what these are or what to do with them

Lot 2

Plant 5
No clue

Plant 6
I'm 99% sure this is Anubia Coffeefolia

Plant 7
Water Sprite? Also, how do I plant?

Plant 8
Or is this the water sprite? Don't know how to plant this one either.

Thanks, any and all help (especially quick) will be greatly appreciated!!

Plant 1 - tie it to driftwood or rock
Plant 2 - Another Java fern
Plant 3 - Riccia is naturally a floating plant, under high light and CO2 it will grow tied to something, see Momotaros giant tank journal for details
Plant 4 - Even more java fern, on the left I think is pearl weed, not sure though (edit --> nah, I agree, looks more like java moss)
Plant 5 - That's the crypt
Plant 6 - tie to driftwood or rock
Plant 7 - throw away
Plant 8 - Wisteria, just plant into substrate
