I'm currently watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, and am curious about what the plants in those pots are. They appear at around minute 35 of the very first episode. The left might be some kind of maple, but I'm more interested in the right one. Unfortunately Google Lens didn't help.

Could you please help me identifying the right one?

    Some variant on garden croton Codiaeum variegatum? There are lots of plants in the genus: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croton_(plant) – Wayfaring Stranger Jun 11 '20 at 15:37
  • @WayfaringStranger This looks really good. Tough I haven't found a picture of a plant that resembles this one, I have to admit that the picture isn't that good, and it might be a cut down plant. – bot47 Jun 12 '20 at 2:41
