02082011-BS-001- Dianella from From Herbal Garden for ID: Dianella sp for from Herbal Garden Samalkha Panipat
Cultivated Herb about 3 ft high

My guess is D tasmanica 
It also looks like D. tasmanica to me commonly known as Flax Lily

Ornamental for id - 200113 ANB-0029 - Mumbai: This ornamental plant has very attractive foliage and small yellow flowers. I'd like to know its name if possible.
looks like Chlorophytum comosum, spider plant
This is Dianella tasmanica, a garden plant. Not Chlorophytum comosum.
this is not spider plant. something else... I am not a botanist nor a taxonomist, but I am very confident that this is not the plant known in the west, in home gardens and home gardening centers as the SPIDER PLANT ....
I know simply because I have grown several hundred of them and was able to get the babies plants, the flowers and even seeds that germinated, and the plant throws side shoots and develops further clones of itself, , right next to the mother plant itself ...
The leaf blade is much skinnier than shown, rather delicate than shown, and flowers smaller almost as wide as tall and white with bright yellow pollens, quite different from these pics... and the inflorescence is a bunched up group at the end of the spike thrown out by the mother, and that 's where the babies also develop...
hope someone knows what this is..
PS I wrote this last nite and for some reason draft was saved and did not go thru...
just now I saw a response from ...
so may be my gardner's instinct was right...
and we can study the real differences, thanks ...

Orchid for ID-300411MN: Sending photos of orchid plant bought from a Mumbai Nursery. The Nursery lady does not have the ID of the orchid but told me it has just finished flowering and it will flower again after one or two months. It is a terrestrial type orchid with straped leaves. I would be obliged if anyone can please tell me the ID of this orchid.
This could be Arundina graminifolia.
But cant confirm without flowers.
This plant is not an orchid plant. Last week I saw flowers on it which does not resemble an orchid. I will soon send the flower photos. The vendor had fooled me in believing that this is an orchid.
I am sending the photos of the flowers taken today. Kindly identify the plant.
I think this is some species of Dianella
This could be from family Xanthorrhoeaceae, may be Stypandra....
This is definitely not an Orchid.
As ... correctly identified Dianella, it is Dianella tasmanica.
Hope I am correct.
Yes Aarti ji, it is already under Xanthorrhoeaceae in our database
… had suggested Dianella, ... suggested Stypandra
Let us hope to get confirmed Id
Dianella tasmanica typically has blue to purple flowers followed by purple berries.

Dianella tasmanica 
Thanks, ..., for the id.
Yes appears to be Dianella tasmanica as per images and details herein.

I guess ID is correct but habit and leaf images would help more.
Thank you ... Attaching another image which may perhaps help.

I guess yes.
The ID is correct. This is a common foliage pot plant grown in  home gardens here. In fact I have grown this in Chennai & here.
