What's this Sans?

kwie2011August 6, 2014

Is this the standard S. fisciata that spawned all the cultivars, or is it something more interesting?

Since you have a young plant, it's hard to say for sure. Here's a good discussion about the different black/gold types.

Here is a link that might be useful: What's the best black and gold type?

Sansevieria trifasciata Futura. But which one? Could develope into a 'Gold Flame' or just 'Black Gold Edge' or who knows. I've seen these a lot this year at the big box stores. It is showing more yellow than normal but It could loose it. Good one to start a collection with.

I think it's too soon to say, could be 'Black Gold' or 'Gold Flame' like Stush stated. Allow it to produce more leaves and it should show it's "true colors." Sometimes 'Gold Flame' takes a few leaves before a gold one pops out.

Thanks guys! Cultivars get very confusing, don't they? Yikes! I will wait to see what happens.

Give us another picture once you have a few more leaves, I want to see what this "baby" turns into. :D
