I don't know what the plant is but the white things look like scale insects. Google soft scale insect and see if anything looks familiar.

Thanks for the suggestion, I just looked on internet. maybe they are scale insects. The weird part of that is, each leaf has only 1 of those things, located at the center of the leaf where the midrib is. just 1 in each leaf.
Either or I'll keep my eyes open.

If it really is scale you will soon have more, a lot more. Give it a week or two.

It's not scale and those are not leaves, they're stems. Those are flowers of Butcher's Broom, Ruscus aculeatus. It is a member of the Lily(!) family. It's commonly used by florists because it lasts so long in arrangements.

Yes, I had those for probably 2 months or probably 3. they look great still. * After reading your msg, I looked on internet, and yes! those are the one I had in my house and in a vase, I recently planted and see if that will grow. So far is alive. CPP Thanks for the info and your help.
