bright orange flower heads

thick green leaves with long stalks of everblooming orange flowerheads

Drought Smart Plants reply: Well, don't that one just knock your socks off!?

I thought when I first saw this that it's got to be some kind of orchid based on the leaves, with the aerial roots so that might be something to check out. Other than that, I'm not familiar with it at all.

Gorgeous plant, though! Whatever you're doing it's really liking!

I do believe it is an orchid, I've seen one very similar in an orchid display at a botanical garden.
