the leaves do show brown dots once in awhile...but I sprayed eeeeverywhere with neem oil 4 times in a week when I first bought them. I jet-mist-sprayed them in the shower from top, from underneath, sideways, all around, into the stalks/base and in between. I see no other signs of pests other than these spontaneous brown dots.

I moved 2 somewhere else. the saucers are there because I gave them a nice long shower the other day and I had to move them out of the tub. they're just there for drainage. I usually have them on a 'cork' coaster. any water that drains--less than half a centimeter--seems to be evaporating very quickly.
no plants sit in
the water. the pots in the cup, there's a gap between the surface of the water and bottom of the pot. I have it like that because I'm trying to see if it may provide a little bit of humidity.

I have less than 10 so I'm still ok taking them to the bathtub and just leaving the shower running. sometimes I have a bucket of water, and I dunk the pots till they stop bubbling (usually after about 10 seconds) and then leave them in the tub to drain.
It’s a great view. The one that is blooming looks lovely.
What is the grassy-looking one? — it DOES stand out.
thanks! I actually cut off all the blooms for all my pots because they're dumping pollen all over my 500sq-ft apartment. I got peace lilies because NASA listed them as very efficient for cleaning the air...albeit in their laboratory setting. that 1 pot pretty much said "I hate you" and threw up 3 new flowers. 2 other pots put up....green flowers...which I also cut away.
the grassy plant...I got it free w/ a yelp coupon (lol). it's a "neanthe bella palm." chamadorea elegans is what the owner of the nursery said.
