Notes:

First one is 3 ft tall with a long bare stem and all the foliage at the top. Second and third is a plant with a lot of long, skinny, curly bare stems. The base is a thick bare trunk that is horizontal . Last picture is a leaf closeup. Both were given to me a few months ago. They don’t look well-cared for, soil is old looking. First one gets west light. Second one gets strong east light. I water them sparingly and see new growth on both. I would like to prune the tall leggy one. Thanks.
