HELP! I can't find what this one is anywhere. I have had it for about thirty years.

The leaves slightly resemble Dumb Cane but are on long slim branches. The trunk is similar to a palm or cane. I recently fed it some vitamins and for the first time ever it produced the flower that is in the picture. I want to clone it, but I don't know what it is and am afraid I might not get the process correct. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Don

Compare with Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema).

Amazing! You are right on! Thank you very much. I have asked numerous individuals what they thought it was. Especially since I have never seen it in any of the stores around here. Do you know if I can use the seeds from the fruit to grow another plant?

Thanks again!
