This one hasn't grown much at all. I'm hoping I can find out what it is so that I can find out what it needs. Thanks!

Commelinaceae family. You have two species there. Specie 1) ? Specie 2) Tradescantia pallida (purple leaves) called purple heart.

Sorry for the confusion. I knew of the Purple heart that was planted with it. I was trying to get a picture of the whole plant but should have stated exactly which plant I was talking about. The one in question that I need an ID for is the middle plant with the flat green leaves. Thanks for your post. I'll look up Commelinaceae now and see what I find! :-)

Your other one is in the same family, possibly another Tradescantia species or something closely related.
