Picture is housed at this link now: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw-BAnS1jOOTT2IzcDJ5ZHZNWWM/view?usp=sharing I'd like to know what kind of plant the thin green things are (not the rubber tree), and how to encourage the bare-stemmed ones on the left to branch like the one on the right is doing. Thanks!

Thanks for the link; I am able to see the photo there! This looks to me like a species of ornamental Asparagus, known as asparagus ferns. These are relatives of edible asparagus that are grown for their beautiful folaige.

There are many related species of ornamental asparagus. I will try to find out which one this is. Meanwhile, here is some advice on growing them:
