Question help IDing plants

I bought a "test" plant at my lfs just to see if my fish would eat it and i dont know what it is (it is in the 1st photo) today i went to petco, because my lfs is closed, to get some plants and they sold me a group of 3 plants with one of those sticks that has a bunch of names on it....the girl said that the list is of ALL the diff plant you could get in a pack but she doesnt know which ones are in each bundle they are in photos 2-4....when i looked them up on-line alot of them came up as "flase aquarium plants" so now im concerned...if ANYONE can help me id them and let me know what they may be i would be very greatful!!
the stick has the names:
Dracaena
Spathiphyllum
Ophiopogon
Trichomanes
Syngonium

Thats the risk you take really, the staff won't know anything about plants, they sell what is provided.
