companions for indoor tropicals

I have several taller plant that I would like to underplant with others that have similar requirements...any ideas?

* Ficus benjamina
* Dracaena Janet Craig
* Yucca
* Dracaena marginata

I also have some Golden Pothos and a small philodendron (looks similar to the pothos but is green, not yellow variegated), as well as a Peace Lily. Do you think any of these would work together?

Golden Pothos and a small philodendron can be potted individually. Would look very nice setting under the taller one.

Peace Lily is an excellent stand alone choice. A nice eye catcher while flower.

One of the scented pelagorniums would be pretty edging under the yucca. Some trail nicely, too. I have one that smells just like lime when you rub the leaves. It has crinkly serrated-edged foliage and it likes bright light.

They come in scents of various citrus, other fruits like apple, rose, and even nutmeg. They flower, too, but that's definitely not the main show.
