I have gotten views but no comments. Should I take better pictures? Or do I need more information? I bought the plant at a church bazaar last fall. It was tinier then so I imagine it's a young plant? The tips of each leaf come to a long point.

Looks like a type of Sansevieria

I agree, Birdsnest Sansevieria (S. hahnii) would be my guess. It's looking wetter than it should be, it could rot....

I'm thinking Sansevaria as well, but I don't know enough about them to be able to suggest which variety.

Please keep in mind that sometimes people may view your post and then go do some research on finding an accurate ID. It may take them a little while to get back and post. An hour and 20 minutes isn't long enough to worry about no responses, especially on a weekday when many people are working. Thumbs up I think there are some people here knowledgeable in Sansevarias, so hopefully one will see this and be able to provide you a more exact ID.

Welcome to NGA. Welcome!

Thank you all for your assistance. I was worried it wasn't enough information, it didn't occur to me that people would look it up. Your help is very appreciated. Also, thank you for the watering advice. I will keep that in mind.

4m4nd4, Welcome!

Yes, your lovely little plant is a Bird's Nest Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata 'Hahnii')
