Shark's Fin Sansevieria
(aka Sansevieria masoniana 'Victoria')
I am native to Africa and was originally collected in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
I am a mono-phyllic species. In the wild I grow in clumps, but in this case I am a single rigid pyramid of green. I have a large surface area with dappled markings and a surrounding band of brown.
I can reach approx 3ft in height.
I like bright filtered light, but am also quite forgiving and can cope with low light conditions for a while.
I am not known for the beauty of my flowers, but I may surprise you with one.
No grooming required. Just admire!
I can live a long time with the right care.
Only water when the soil is completely dried out, in Winter approximately once every 2 months. Please dont overwater me.
I am great for clearing formaldehyde from the air, I also give off oxygen at night, so I am handy to have in the bedroom.
