Identify Plants

Hi Judy!

I’ve had these two plants for 4-5 years. I just watered them and not too much else. Never really cared much for plants. Lately I’ve become a lot more interested in plants and want to buy more but decided I need to learn to properly care for the ones that I already have before getting more. Could you please help me identify these plants? Should I repot them into larger pots? How do I properly care for them?

Thank you very much for your time!!!

Hi Lena,

Whatever you’re doing seems to be just right. Your plants look beautiful! The first plant is a Palm. Without seeing it in person, I’d say it was a Neanthebella Palm (also called a Parlor Palm). The second plant is a Dracaena marginata. You can find my care advice on how to grow these houseplants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
