The plants you've mentioned are exotic house plants.  I don't know the French
equivalent, but here are English common names and maybe someone who knows
French will recognize them.

epipremnum pinnatum -- "Monstera nechodomii" or "Taro vine" -- native of
Malaysia, Java, New Guinea.
rhapis humilis --"slender lady palm" -- native of So. China.
rhodea japonica -- (probably rohdea japonica) -- "sacred lily of China" --
native of Japan.
clivia minata -- (probably clivia miniata) -- "Kafar lily" -- native of Natal.
