What is this plant and how do you take care of it?

Hi everyone,
My boyfriend and I just inherited some plants from a neighbour who was moving out. However we don't know what there are or how to take care of them. Could you help?
Thanks so much,
Sian

Hello again. This one looks to me like Pachira aquatica, aka "money tree." Once again, I haven't grown this, but I hear that these guys can take a bit more water than other houseplants.

Do note though, that overwatering is probably the #1 killer of houseplants among houseplant noobs, so proceed with caution.
