Not sure what I have.

I bought this Sansevieria on ebay as a Trifasciata Superba but after doing an image search on Google, most of the pictures look like nothing I have. Can someone tell me for sure? Thanks.

Frank,
Welcome to our forum.
This looks like the ones going around the bix box stores for the past couple of years. I also purchased some. They could go by many different names. They are in the Sansevieria trifasciata Futura group. Futura Superba means smaller growing than regular trifasciata which can grow up to 5 feet tall. Thats too big for most people. My best guess would be Black Futura 'Goldedge'. Since the green is a darker color than regular futura. Another name may be `Laurentii Compacta'. Check out link below;

I was looking for something with wide leaves. I guess this isn't it. But the plant looks great nonetheless.
