My sister gave this plant to my mom. We have absolutely no idea what it is. My mom thought I would know, but I really don't. She wants to give me a cutting, but if I don't know what it is, I would have no idea how to propagate it. She seems to think it's a common plant - but I have never seen it. Help? It's a houseplant here in the NW anyways.

Hmmm, looks kind of like a spathiphyllum (sometimes called "Peace Lily"), but I've never seen one with pinkish flowers. Kind of hard to see what the plant itself looks like.

That is an Anthurium.

They are propagated by division of the clump mostly from side branching off of the lower stems. They could be forced to sprout new shoots by cutting off the top with a good piece of stem for the top to reroot and allowing the headless rooted bottom with a good piece of stem left to resprout. They are slow naturally. Lacking the proper tropical conditions they could be painfully slow to dead.

You should post that information on propagation in the plant files. There's almost no information on the plant there.
