Do you know which one he's got from the photo? Let me know if you know. I'd like to try one. The plant has a nice look to it sitting on his coffee table and he said he got his to bloom so I'm gave to try the species he has.

You must be talking about Queen of the Night! A rare treat and amazing fragrance.

Somebody in the other forum where I posted this story speculated that it was Hymenocallis speciosa. Googling images of that plant, I'd say that if it's not it, it's very similar.

Do any of these remind you of your plant when it was in bloom, Hymenocallis List?

The flower of H. lehmilleriana seems close, but I remember no such seed formation such as is shown and the leaves were glossier. Likewise H. harrisiana. I know that the webbing (I'm sure there's a technical term that I lack) in the center was much less pronounced than most of those pictured. I would have to vote H. harrisiana as the most likely candidate. Thanks for the info.
I've recently been in touch with the former girlfriend whose mother gave me the original, so there may be a chance of me getting a new specimen. It pays not to burn bridges.

I have one spot for a plant up on a plant stand where my computer is. The plant I had in this room bit the dust when were on vacation and I like the way your plant looks so thanks for telling me which one you think you had.
