Identify Houseplants Found by Trash Cans

I have rescued these plants from a eviction in our neighborhood. They were left by the trash cans to be thrown away. I have no idea what kind they are or really how to care for them. Can you help me to identify them so that I can take care of them properly. Thanks. Gina

Hi Gina,

The plants look in  great shape for having been found near some trash cans!

This is an Arrowhead Plant

This is a Peace Lily

Could you please tell me more about this plant: size of leaves and thickness of leaves and stems. Are the leaves heart shaped? It looks like a type of variegated heart shaped philodendron but I am not sure without more information. See picture below.

You can find my care tips for the first two plants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.

Will be back in touch as soon as I have more information.
