It looks to be a Clivia; The English common names are Natal lily or bush lily.

It's a plant that comes originally from Africa but it now commonly sold as house plants.

The Wikipedia article give a good information about that plant.


Clivia miniata

You have also to notice this is a toxic plant and to keep away from small children or pets.

  • $\begingroup$ not sure about the down votes, but maybe you could add a good description or image to show the similarities between the Clivia and the plant in question. $\endgroup$
