  • Thank benn for your answer .Yes it has small white flowers look a bit like the orchid flowers but not as beautiful as orchid flowers – zira Oct 2 '19 at 7:35
  • It might be wise to add a picture of the flowers too, it will increase the chance that someone knows what plant this is here. – benn Oct 2 '19 at 11:44
  • The presentation of plantlets makes it look like a species of Clorophytum (spider plant) to me. There are many species in this genus. The vegetative forms are quite varied. pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/Chlorophytum – user22542 Oct 2 '19 at 17:25

It is an orchid. Even you say it looks like a orchid flower. You states it's not as showy as an orchid, but there are actually 20,000 different species of orchids in the world, not all of them are showy. Those that are showy and easy to grow are the ones we are most familiar with. If you want to know the exact species, either waiting until it flowers and add a picture to this post or I would suggest going to either Houzz or Garden.org. They both have orchid forums. You could even email a national orchid society. Post this picture and one of the flower if you have it. One of these forums maybe able to give you the exact species. Once you have learned the answer, please come back here and answer your own question.
