Attn garden sleuths: Any clue what this is? Was in window sill of MIL's house. Don't know if it ever flowered. Leaves have texture, are thinner and less waxy than Amaryllis.

Sort of looks like a bromeliad.

Some sort of Dracaena?

I agree with it being a Bromeliad. Maybe Guzmania but hard to tell without a bloom.

Is there a "hole" in the middle of the leaves, where they come together at the base of the plant? Are the edges of the leaves scratchy or smooth? They look scratchy/serrated to me, which eliminates Dracaena, and is evidence toward Bromeliads of various genera.

I'm thinking bulb of some kind. I'm not seeing a Rhizome that would indicate most Broms. or a vase shape.
