Can anyone identify these?  I’d like to know if a North facing bathroom would be ok for them, or do they need sunshine?

    The pictures won't load for me sorry.

    Hi KoG. Looks like some type of silver leaved pepperomia, a tradescantia and a polka dot plant (hypoestes? if memory serves).
    I wouldn't dare to give care advise as I don't grow them, (learned the names at college years ago and that's the only info that's stuck).

    I think the first one might be one of the fancy-leaved types of begonia.
    The tradescantia needs plenty of light (I have that one in an east-facing bathroom but it's not really bright enough for it).
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    Could be Jenny. I missed the slightly lopsided look of the leaves. Good spot by you 👍.

    Thanks all.  They are very pretty so I think we’ll find the correct facing window for all of them.
