Ricky is now on the 6th floor, in Room 6660, Jim Pattison Pavillion. The suggested visiting times as of my last visit were
10 AM - 6 PM (7 days a week).
As you all know, Ricky is a restless soul, and a nomad. Being pent up, by himself for large periods of time is very hard for him. The best gift you can give him is your company.
That said, he won't turn down any loot, so you can now bring him things to help combat the boredom. He has a portable DVD player, so people can lend him movies. If you want to go the plant route, I would suggest something that doesn't require a lot of care, as his mobility is still fairly minimal. (maybe a cactus?)
Other things that he likes:
-sports (his hockey team is the Buffalo Sabres),
-toys (the weirder, the better)
-Jason (from Friday the 13th), Predator (from Predator)
and Boba Fett (from Star Wars)
-Burger King Whoppers
