What is this tropical plant?

Posted by gardening_guy none (My Page) on

Can anyone help me find out what this plant is that I bought? I purchased it while at an orchid show, and was from a vendor that sold it to me as a little root, almost like a tuber. Apparently it has a big white flower at some point, but maybe not. I was hoping that someone recognizes the leaves. It's very tropical, grows in always moist soil, and like bright filtered sun, never direct sun. Any help would be appreciated.

It could also be a clivia miniata
