some type of orchid. maybe? not sure as that flower (nice as it is) doesn't look like any type of orchid flower i've ever seen!

could be some type of hoya or even an aloe or other kind of succulent.

Not hoya, not aloe. It reminds me of something. I'll look around some and see what I can find.

Unlike many Haemanthus species, the bulbs of this one produce offsets readily.
