I have two plants for which I need care instructions, but don't know what they are.

#1 - deep purple in bright sun. green in less sun. leaves and stems have fine fur. pink flower. wandering vines. propagates easily but vines are fragile.

#2 - tall stalk- leaves at top. ridged stalk. burgundy stems and dark green leaves lined with burgundy.

Anyone know how I can post my pictures?

Wild guesses: 1) Tradescantia spathacea aka Moses in the cradle

2) One of the many dracaenas

2 sounds like Cordyline...or Variegated 'Ti' Plant.

Your first one is a Purple velvet plant or Gynura aurantiaca. Your second description is too vague to ID correctly.
