I have this peace lily (or at least I thought it was a peace lily) but the leaves look more like a calla lily. Is it some kind of hybrid? The flowers look like peace lily flowers so I am very confused.

I understand your confusion, but the plant is a type of Anthurium. All three plant are in the Aroid family and have similar looking flowers.

Thank you! I would have looked at lily crosses forever. They look so similar! So does this mean that this is also an anthurium? I had assumed it was a calla lily that didnt flower because it was indoor.

I don't think that is either an Anthurium or a Calla Lily. Someone else will ID it for you.

Are the leaves attached to a main stem or do they come directly out of the ground? Can you add a photo of that part of the plant (the part where the leaves are attached to something)?

Maybe a Philodendron?

I agree with Daisy's Philodendron ID. There are so many different Philos that I won't venture to guess which one. Besides the name has probably been changed recently, anyway!

Do an image search for Philodendron and you may find one that looks like yours.

All of that said, most Philos require the same overall care.
