Would it be the plant on the right? Hard to be sure, a bit blurry, but looks from here like a Ficus pumila, aka Creeping Fig. Nice plant. I have a bit I started from a cutting.

I'm thinking creeping ficus aka Ficus pumila. I like this plant a lot! Make sure you keep this one moist ALL the time. Even slightly drying out and it's done. Extra humidity might also be helpful as this plants leaves are extremely thin. They seem to like medium to bright light. As I said though...keep it watered. I've lost several of these due to drying out. Good luck with it. I'm going to try them again myself. Nice plant for a clearance. Btw... There are also variegated varieties that are even more beautiful than the plain green; even a variety known as oak leaf creeping fig. Kyle

Yep, Creeping fig. Don't let it get anywhere near something it can latch on to. This plant sort of glues itself to a surface and away it goes! It's a fun plant to grow on a sphagnum form.

Just wanting to be sure which. I keep mine in a covered container as if a little terrarium, expressly so it doesn't dry out (also I wanted it to root more bits of itself).
