1 is a Senecio

The "Proven Winners" people sell one as S. cephalophorus which is similar.

kwangin, that is exactly the plant i was thinking of...so thank you for that! lol
that said, the only flowers i've ever seen on a Fittonia looked like miniature Justicia flowers.

i think you may have come across the right family though...more research.

3 does not resemble Fittonia in flower; it seems more like a Thunbergia in many ways.
