Sansevieria masoniana "Whale Fin", the specific epithet masoniana honors Maurice Mason, a succulent enthusiast who first collected and cultivated this plant. The succulent, oblanceolate, upright leaves resembling the shape of a whale's fin, are a dark green mottled with light green and red tinged margins, reaching up to 3' tall and 8" wide, will slowly form clumps 2’ wide spreading by underground rhizomes, each rhizome produces 1-2 leaves. The inflorescence is an upright stalk bearing 1" long, fragrant greenish-white flowers.
Sansevieria are known for being a GREAT house plant. Commonly referred to as Snake Plant. They do well with light watering. Within the average house environment, Sansevieria only need to be watered every other week or so. Water at soil level or from the bottom, water left in the rosette can cause rot. Be sure the soil is almost entirely dry before fully watering the plant again. They don't mind stagnant air, which lends to their ease in home environments. They do well in a wide range of lighting conditions but they enjoy moderate lighting the most...but remember, no full sun. They don't mind the heat either.
