I don't know what the name of the plant is, but (if it's what I think it is) it's a fairly common houseplant, and really damned durable. A lot of times you can just grow them in a vase of water (which makes them good candidates for aquaponics), and I've had one that had the root ball dry out completely, and the leaves all turn brown and dry, and about a week later after a bit of watering it sprouted new growth.
