I was told by my mom, that this is a bird of paradise plant...but i know it's not and have not had any luck locating plant name from researching, any help. I would greatly appreciate.

Your mom is not far from correct actually, they are also called "Red-Bird plant" (close enough to bird of paradise). I call mine "R&B plants". Smiling
