Hello all,
About a year ago I received a plant as a gift and I have no idea what it is! I've asked the gift giver and they were unsure, I've also checked through common household plant pictures and used a couple different apps to try and identify it(apparently the apps think it's a pineapple) to no avail. It looks like it may be a type of cactus or succulent, but I have yet to find anything that resembles it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome! to NGA

It's a succulent called Haworthia. You probably aren't finding something on the internet because your's has done what Haworthia do with age - grow tall. They make great hanging basket plants as the tall stems fall over.
