It looks to me like a Arrowhead Plant (Syngonium podophyllum). Google that and see if that's it.

The z shaped plant is a ric rac catus. All i know is the common name. You can google it to find out the botanical name. The other one is an arrowhead plant.

That kinda looks like a devil's backbone plant, at least the stem does. Sometimes called the zig zag plant. I cant' tell for sure. Maybe you can compare some images on google. This may be way off, but it's a starting point. It looks like it might be in the catus family.
