: my mother gave me a plant and called it an airplane plant. I have done endless internet searches for airplane plant and all I come up with is a spider plant
: This plant looks similar to an african iris with no flower. My mom said it does flower but I have never seen it. It gives off baby plants similar to the spider plant only instead of a long sprout with several babies it gives one baby shooting out from near the top of one of the more mature sword shaped leaves

I believe I know what you have. It sounds very similiar to a walking iris that I have. After it blooms it starts 1-5 babies on the stalk. I clip them off to start new plants but if left alone they touch the ground and root. Hope this helps!!!
