can anyone tell me what this houseplant is,its growing well and its a bulb as i dropped it and repotted it



Looks like ZZ plant. It's a tough-as-nails houseplant that requires little water and can thrive in low light conditions. It's very trendy now. It stores water in the underground rhizomes and can go long periods without watering.

Yep, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, though I prefer ZZ myself. Supposedly also called Zanzibar Gem, but I have never actually heard anyone call it that. In medium to bright indirect light, the leaves stand up in a narrow fan. In low light, they lay down in a broad rosette, scaring their owner. It's a relative of the calla lily, but the flowers are small, brown, and held close to the soil surface.
