I think it was impressive that for your first leaf exercise you drew them dynamic. A lot of other people (myself included) tend to draw them very stiff to start of.
You seem to struggle with line confidence is some of these, especially the branches can be a bit wobbly and inconsistent relative to the circles. So it's good that you're already aware and working on that in your warm ups. For future plant drawing and studies maybe lean towards some more branch heavy ones so you can put that into practice as well.
In some of your drawings I have a really hard time resting my eyes cause they don't know where they're supposed to go. Especially with the rose and the bell flower, the lines and shapes are fighting for attention and it's making it very cluttered and hard to look at. So I would maybe read over the potato plant again because there he mentions visual hierarchy and he refers back to how we use line weight in the 250box challange. I think the marker or brush ben you use might be a bit too much. Especially for the outline of the large parts of the piece instead of a more focused focal point.
But I think your plants look really good. Even though I critiqued some of your drawing for having busy line I think some are really good and impressive. The mushroom has fun variation in the cracks and texture. The water lily is also really really good with nice framing of the center with the shadows and more sparing but effective lineweight on the leaves.
Hope this was of help :) .
As mentioned in the critique and by yourself I would say that doing the branches exrcise as a warm up is recommended. Drawing branch heavy plants can be really good too. Maybe also while doing those drawing try and keep focus in mind and not clutter too much
