Help to Identify Mysterious plants

Hi Judy,
A couple months ago, I found two house plants in the trash area of my apartment complex maybe because people were moving out. I brought them home and after a couple of months, to my surprise, one of them grew beautiful flowers.
I’m really curious about what their names are. Can you help me to identify them? Thank you so much.

Hi Michelle,

Orange flowered clivic plant
Clivia Plant

This first plant is a Clivia.

This second plant is a type of Chinese Evergreen plant.

You can read my care tips for both of these plants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.

(The Chinese Evergreen pictured is a slightly different variety, but the care is the same.)

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
