Spathiphyllum is also known as the Peace Lily and the Closet Plant.
This is a plant with large, dark green leaves, with equal veins radiating from the central leaf vein. The leaves are fixed upon erect slender stalks, which grow directly out of the soil. The flower is somewhat like a Anthurium or Calla Lily made up of a similar stalk the upper end of which is a column of tiny flowers, set closely all the way round the central column. This central column is surrounded by a waxy opaque leaflike bract, which is concave on the inside with the top curving slightly over the central column and flowers.

Cactaceae schlumbergera is also known as the Christmas Cactus.
There are three species of schlumbergera, which are native to moist tropical forests. Much like Orchids, in their native habitat, the schlumbergera are found growing in pockets of leaf debris and other humus in forks and other clefts of trees and branches. Most of those you purchased are hybrids of the species. They are also sometimes called Thanksgiving Cactus because they may start to bloom around Thanksgiving and on through Christmas. They may also bloom in the early spring months again. The color of the blooms can range from bright colors such as pink, magenta, orange and even white through pastels of these same colors. Schlumbergera may be raised in outside pots until danger of frost, then taken inside. They seem to know when it is time to get ready to bloom, as the blossoms may start to form before the weather gets more than cool in the South.
