Default Is this an orchid?

This little plant is one of those $3 Costa Farms plants(the rest of which are succulents and cacti) at Walmart and I am wondering if it is an orchid and if so, what species?

The tag doesn't say anything remotely specific, unfortunately. Just "house plant" or something like that.

A cute plant but not an orchid. This is Ledebouria socialis. It is a South Africa native and quite succulent like. My daughter grows this and loves it. It has pretty flowers and is drought tolerant. I believe it is poisonous so keep it away from kitties, dogs or children. It is easy to grow.

Do a quick google search, I think that information is correct.

Yes, Ledebouria socialis. Old name Scilla violacea, so you might find it under that name.
