Help identifying this plant

My sister gave me this plant, said it was some type of ivy but she wasn’t sure. This plant keeps having babies (which I don’t mind) and you don’t need to put it in direct sunlight. I originally thought it was a Cast-Iron plant but it wasn’t; I also thought it was a Chinese evergreen but yet again it wasn’t. I really want to know what kind of plant it is.
Thank you,

Hi Marshy,

Short, pointed,green sansevieria leaves

Sansevieria Hahnii

Your plant is a type of Sansevieria, also called a Snake Plant or Mother in Law’s Tongue because of the sharp leaf tips. There are many, many types of sansevierias. If your plant has short leaves it is a type of Sansevieria Hahnii; if it has tall leaves it is a type of Sansevieria Trifasciata. You can read all my care tips and information on how to grow sansevierias  in the Popular Houseplants section of the website.
