New to Sans and a New Sans

ultra_violetDecember 24, 2013

I just bought my first Sansevieria (my local Lowes has most 1.5gal houseplants on clearance for $7!). The plant tag has minimal info so I tried identifying my particular plant with pictures online.

IMO it most resembles either Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii' or Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii compacta.' As I'm new to this species, what variety do you think it is?

Thanks in advance.

Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii' most likely. compacta would have smaller and a little wider leaf.
For $7 you got a deal. Enjoy.

In the USA its commercial name is "S.laurentii Black Gold", maybe it is the same of Chahinian's 'Laurentii compacta'. Or a poorly banded Laurentii...who knows??
Look here (if most of the names are wrong)....
