What is it?

I got this a while back and have never been able to identify which Sans it is. Can anyone help? It is a rosette form with long narrow draping straps.

Pics at this link. The orange color is just a reflection from the pot.

Thanks for any help!

It looks to me like it is a variant of S. parva or S. dooneri. In either case it is a lovely plant well worth having.

Hope this helps,

Don't know enough about them to speculate that it is a varient or not, but it certainly looks like S. parva to me.

Easy, quick grower. Enjoy it, its a nice plant I finally got a start of.

Welcome to the Sanseveria forum!

I googled the parva and the dooneri. Looks like the parva with it's narrow straps. It's blooming now, which is a first for me with Sansevierias. Way Cool! Thanks for the help! I really appreciate it.

Cena....If you ever want a big bunch of S. parva, there is a nursery up here (Lakewood Nursery) in Lakewood that always has several 1 gal containers of it. At least they did the last time I was there. You can always call first. Also, H & H Nursery gets in fisherii and moonshine often.
