I am searching for this plant, I have checked Ebay and they are selling plants under false names. I know what the real one looks like. Ebay sellers don't know their names. I have received plants from dear old friends, wrong names, however.

Hi Norma and Tata,

How are you... nice to meet you here!! :)

This is S. humiflora which extracted from Sansevieria #10/2004 page 4 and 6

Honestly, in Thailand and Indonesia, also in Ebay, they sell S. hybrid as S. humiflora :)

I have S. sp. which collected by Dave Richard at Fikizola Crossing, and Alan Butler was sure that it's another clone of S. humiflora

Norma,
Please contact Alan Myklebust, hope that he has a spare of S. humiflora :)

It is supposed to be another form of S. hallii. Laid back leaves that are approx. 8-9" long. You can see what I'm talking about the experts fight over these names, they really don't know either. I wish Dave Richards would verify this. I don't have one, and I am not going to buy one unless it is from Dave Richards, I am tried of buying plants on the sellers say so. Been there done that.

Alan didn't have one that I know of. Norma

In the last issue of the San. Journal pictures were shown of many different clones. The have shorter leaves than S. halli but are very similar. I'll keep looking, I can't identify a baby plant. I just not better than NE and will never be. Baby leaves just don't give me an identification, (San Journal is availble if you join the Internation Organiation.) Norma

Hi Norma,

Yes very similar with S. hallii but thicker and wider...
I've joint the ISS and have all Journal except #1

I haven't seen a live one yet, anything with thicker leaves then
S. hallii I think I have Journal #1 I have Juan's C. Journal #1 is that the one that you want? Ask Alan if I can copy it off for you, have him send me an e-mail. I will have Kinko do it. Some pictures are in color, and I can't do it on my own printer. Norma
