Spider Plant ID

I purchased 4 spider plants off of ebay and just got them today. It was one auction for all 4. Came with a variegated, reverse variegated, green, and Hawaiian. I bought it more for the reverse and Hawaiian because I already have the other two. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to find two green spiders in the package instead of just one, but they're both very different from my green spider and I just wondered if they're a different type of green spider or something else.

This is my green spider. It's pretty young. I got a start from a friend earlier this year.

The two new plants that arrived today. You can see the leaves are much wider than the other.

RE: Spider Plant ID

They don't look much like spider plants to me.

RE: Spider Plant ID

3rd one looks more like a Corn Plant (sorry, not sure of its botanical name, maybe one of the Dracenas?)

Doesn't look like a spider to me either (leaves are too wide & I don't remember that striation-type marking).

RE: Spider Plant ID

I'm gonna have to agree. They don't look like spiders to me either. They both kind of look like a corn plants (D. fragrans) part of the dracaena family.
