Is this a spider plant?

As we were strolling around Ikea, we came across this cart that had small live plants (this about 4 months ago). When we purchased it, the sticker on it said - Chlorphytum.

Looking at it though, I'm not sure it is a spider plant, it doesn't really look like my other spider.

What are your thoughts? I saw something similar the other day that had a label on it of "decorative grass".

This picture was taken today.

If this is a spider, is it one that will or will not have babies?

You bet your buttery bananas that is a spider!!!

RE: Is this a spider plant?

Awesome, thanks! How do I tell if it is the version that does not have the babies and only has the flowers...I believe they are called Laxum?

RE: Is this a spider plant?

That one is the one I call the reverse or negative spider plant. It has the green in the centre and the pale outside. There is another common(er) one which is the other way around. They both produce babies and flowers.
