Scape short, bracts not forming a cone at apex would be C. glaucoides.
Picture shown on page 139 FOS is C. glaucum. Regards, Shrikant

ID further validated by Ajay Nalavade ji ... excerpt of his message:

...................

The plant is Chlorophytum glaucoides Blatt.
regarding C. glaucum Dalz. the anthers are larger than the filament.
and about C. breviscapum Dalz. leaves are elongate dark green.
