Yes, it's flaming sword (Vriesia). They are indoor plants. They like bright indirect light to filtered sun, moderate humidity, infrequent watering, and light feeding. The flower cluster will last for 3-6 months, depending on temperature and humidity. After the flower fades, the mother rosette slowly dies, but not before producing 3-5 new rosettes from the base. The new rosettes will grow for 2-3 years before blooming again. If you can get a good sized clump of rosettes going, you will always have flowers.
