I receive this plant and the only name I got was “False Orchid”. It had 3 blooms , one at a time and they only lasted for a day. The leaves are strap like and look like an iris or blckberry lily leaf. The leaves are light green in color. Does anyone know what it might be?

    I think this is what is also called a “twelve apostles” plant. This link gives some excellent photos and more information:
