Hello! I was recently given this houseplant, and I have no idea what it is or how to take care of it! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dracena.
It would like a summer holiday outside in a location of dappled shade - if you have one. Then back inside when it begins cooling. Filtered bright light indoors, keep evenly moist but don't overwater it - especially easy to do in winter. Popular houseplant for a reason; they are easy to care for.
Having said all of that - I claim no skill at growing houseplants; I have none. Well a zygote but that doesn't count because it is outside for more than it is inside. Instead, I concentrate my time on killing my outdoor plants.
I find myself most amusing.

I believe it's Spineless Yucca (Yucca gigantea)



I've never grown one as a container plant but I have a very large one growing in my yard. They like bright light and are quite drought tolerant. As an indoor plant, they can likely go even longer without water than if they were outdoors.

Yucca gigantea. One of the most common indoor plants here. This is how most of them look like.

Glad I qualified with my lack of knowledge of houseplants!
