Helicopter Plants?

Please help me ID these 3 plants below and how to care for them. A local bloomer who gave me these plants (cuttings) can't remember the names of those plants except the first pic, it's called "Helicopter Plants". I did some research online but found nothing related to Helicopter Plant. Thanks for any help and advise.

The first one looks in the Commelina clan to me, or perhaps a Gibasis before flowering.

3 Chlorophytum

Thanks for all your helps.
I know what kind of plants I have now and how to care for them :)

RE: Helicopter Plants?

The middle one might be a piece of Cissus quadrangularis. New plants grow from chunks of the stem like that.


Here is a link that might be useful: Cissus quadrangularis
