    Hello, what kind of orchid do you think this is? I just got it from one of my friends and she said it is an african spotted orchid, but it doesn't really look like it is when I google other images. The leaves are coming off of the steam, not straight from the ground like the images I've seen.

    Thanks!

    It doesn't look like any orchid I recognize.

    Sorta looks like Dracaeana surculosa. Which isn’t in the orchid family.

    Not sure but I agree it looks more like something from the family Commelinaceae (Tradescantia family) and not an orchid, definitely not an Oeceoclades sp.

    Edit: i agree on Dracaeana surculosa being a possible ID
