Little Help Here?

My mom just bought 3 new plants for the garden. Some aren't exactly new, but I still need help. It would be great if someone can tell me the needs of each plant so they don't decline in health.

A crinum lily





















An orchid (needs an ID)























And some curcurma/siamese tulips

Hardy

Most of my plants, especially the high-maintenance flowering plants have suffered from neglect as I struggle to make ends meet. However, some plants are growing just fine without my attention and care.

The Tillandsias are doing just fine, and even flowering without my care.





















The Little Bird Plants (Pedilanthus) are growing just fine too.






















My favourites are still the mandevillas. They are still showy and robust even without me checking for pests or fertilising. Even when all other climbers (aristolochia and passiflora) have declined in growth, the mandevillas still flourish.
