What type of plant is this? Someone mentioned it might produce a white flower? How do I care for it?

Maybe a peace lily?

Looks like your basic Spath peace lily to me, too. Medium light to tolerant of low light, this is one plant I find always likes to stay moist.If too dry, it wilts dramatically, but perks up with water. A wilt leads to some yellow leaves, so you don't want it wilting too often or you lose a lot of leaves.

I agree with Sally and would add that flowering can be enhanced by keeping it potbound and by fertilizing at half strength monthly.
