Anyone know the name of this plant. It has that long stem with orange flower coming from the cactus plant.

That looks like an aloe plant on the left if that is where the flower stalk is coming from

Weird if so, as my aloe flower stalk did not look like that
My flowers where white & smaller
And you could smell it thru-out the house - indoor plant

That is where it is coming from. It is a fantastic looking plant. I just noticed it in my backyard.

Yup, that's an aloe plant
If you ever burn yourself hack a piece off & squeeze it on the burn
I have about 7 aloe plants right now, all inside
I need to get a big pot & ket one grow huge again

I got rid of my last huge aloe - maybe 75+ lbs
I kept a few & recently seperated one into several plants

Just googled aloe plant. Looks like it. I think it's too good looking to lop off a piece. I'll have to think twice when I burn myself.

As they get bigger they push off baby plants
So I just split them off & grow them
I give them away to people
Mine is originally from Florida

That is a nice flower, I guess they can be white, pink, orange...maybe other colors
