Anyone grow the Sansevieria Moonshine variegated? This is a very slow grower. Note the faint cream stripe in the center of the emerging leaf.

That is a beauty and one I would like to own!!! I have not seen that particular one before and I thank you for sharing the photos!

RE: Sansevieria Moonshine variegated

Here's another moonshine variant that should be in circulation by now. This one has several names. It is rather stable with the markings in this pattern. I have seen a reverse pattern of this that I hope mine would sport some day.
"Silver Scratches"

The 2nd picture looks more like mine. except mine is a sharp white and green and white. it has not offset yet and may revert the first off set. Norma

RE: Sansevieria Moonshine variegated

When the next few leaves emerge from my reverse variegated moonshine I will post it. I recently topped this and buried the entire plant. While this may appear to kill the mother plant, the number of offsets produced number almost three to one.
I am hoping to get twelve offsets from this treated plant by the end of the year.
There are many ways to induce pup formation. Some suggest laying the entire plant sideways under a mulch and allow side shoots to develop all along the stem and in between the leaves. ( there's a bud just above each leaf but unless disturbed the pup is produced from the rhizome after the leaves have fallen off.
