Hi, Sorry this answer was delayed. Our Garden Doctor service was down for over a month for repairs. I recommend buying a good general purpose houseplant potting soil. It should be fine for all your plants. Keep in mind that you have a plant like peace lily that does not do well in sunshine. Move it to a location away from direct sun and don't forget to water it. They like a lot of water. Your other plants will do best in an east or west facing window. i'm not sure what you mean by Exotic Angel because that's the name of a line of plants from a nursery in Florida. It must have some other name on the plant tag.
