Hi that plant is very common in africa, im really going to try to get the botanical name for you, the common name translated in english is something like grandmothers apron. You also get a smaller version of the plant commonly known as the grandfathers pipe. Its very easily propagate by taking a 2meter piece of the "rope" and winding it in a circle and then just lay the circle touching the soil.
