Please help me! I've had this plant species as a house plant since 1991. All I know is that it must be a type of desert plant as it rarely needs water, Good for me lol as I cant take care of things. In the picture is a offspring of the plant I picked today as it was a piece of the original that was separating from the plant and growing roots off it? Help is very much appreciated thanks!
The first picture is the plant offspring I picked, The second picture is the original plant.

I can't tell for certain but it reminds me of Basket Plant (Callisia fragrans)

Well, as I look more closely, I don't think it's Basket Plant. It looks so familiar though ... I'm sure someone will recognize it and be able to offer an exact ID.

Hi,

Could you tell us a bit more about it? For example, does it ever flower?

The plant doesn't flower. It grows up multiple plants from the soil, none of the plants are connected and the plant doesn't 'branch out'. It was a gift from my mother years ago but she doesn't remember what it was, all I know is that its a very dry plant as it dies when given to much water.

Reminds me of a Yucca of some sort grown in low light conditions.

If it doesn't have the razor sharp tip, it might be Spineless Yucca (Yucca gigantea)
