A lady approached me at Lowe's a few month ago as I was looking at some houseplants and asked me if I wanted some. She was remodeling a room and needed all the houseplants gone. I
jumped at the offer. She gave me what looks like an Iris plant but now two of the leaves have grown babies at the tip almost like a spider plant. I put the babies in the soil and now they have rooted. Any one know what type of plant this could be?

It's a flying iris or walking iris, it has babies that can be rooted in soil or water. It will
have a bloom on it like an iris that will open in the morning and will close at night (not to open again, but not to worry their will be more) Feed it with all purpose plant food dulited by half maybe every three weeks. The blooms will be purple and yellow like an iris. Likes the outside hung on a covered porch or under a tree (not in direct hot sun) be sure to bring in before the first frost. Enjoy!!!!
