Hi Dunder,

It's been a long time since you asked for help with your indoor plants so it may be a bit late for this. Common names can often lead to confusion as sometimes different plants will have the same common name. Therefore I'm including the scientific names.

Seifritzi palm is probably Chamaedorea seifrizii. It shouldn't have direct sunlight. A bright spot near a window will be fine. Here's how to grow them indoors.

Fortune plant could be Reineckea carnea and is grown in the shade garden, so it doesn't need direct sun. It's a popular plant where you live. There are many plants called fortune plants so I'm guessing this is your plant because of where you live. It's been difficult to find much info on how to grow this as a houseplant. Don't let it dry out and keep out of direct sunlight. There is a variegated and an all green variety. Is this your plant? ... neckea.jpg ... x?pid=8719 ... iegata.htm ... carnea.htm

Japanese bamboo could be one of hundreds of bamboo native to Japan. I suspect yours could be Polygonum cuspidatum aka knotweed. It's a highly invasive plant in the US. Is this your plant?

Giant bachia is a huge worm from South America.

Could your plant be Diffenbachia? ... achia.html
