help with houseplants

  I got these 2 houseplants I don't know the name of.   The first one is one I planted in the pot my son gave me for my birthday. 



      The 2nd is a type of fern I think.  Is it an asparagus fern?  Any help so I don't kill them would be appreciated.

LOL...I tend to have a brown thumb.  I wish my mom had a computer or lived closer.  She has tons of plants and knows what they all are.  Chris

The first one is a caladium. I don't really know about the fern but you might be right. After searching google I think maybe it is. Helen

I agree with the name of the first plant. The second one is definitely a fern but I am not sure what species.
