    What is this plant, my mother brought from Hawaii

    My mother brought back seeds from Hawaii and planted them, she says is was called a Hawaiian Evergreen, can't find such a plant by that name.
    It looks like a Prayer Plant or Dumb cane, it has the flowers like prayer plant white with the large white pistal, But it also puts out what you think will be a flower, but it has tiny green berry/seed cluster, that mature to yellow and red berries/seeds.
    It is a really neat looking plant, I have many cuttings from the mother plant I'm dying to know what is called
    It roots rather easy. likes moisture, medium light

    It looks like Aglaonema commutatum (Chinese evergreen) to me. See this link to a very nice picture from the Digital Flora of Texas Vascular Plant Image Library.
