So i scored some wicked nice cuttings today, i cant tell ofr sure but they look very white forms of S. cylindrica, im unsure, i didnt see a mother plant, and ofcourse the camera battery is dead but ill get you all a good look soon. They are big, 1 inch + diamiter and 8-10 inches long, hard and tough as hell, very white too...im excited
Any ideas of what ive got? I hope it get monsterous...

I also have a futura something that i saved from a friend, it had stopped growing and rotted just a bit, it was fine, even looked good but was dead in the center, there wasnt any new leaves comin out, well, its better now and has begun growing a stolen dirctly from the center of the rosette. Its going to look fantastic....

pics comin soon i promise

Anyone interested in tradin with me...I would love more species of sans, namely the monters! or the cute cute minis : D

Interesting!! Where did you get this cutting?? Is it white as in from a variegated plant, but mostly white?? If so you might have trouble growing it unless it has enough green to keep it going. However, a photo would eliminate a lot of guesswork. Get a list together of what you have and I am sure you could easily find someone to trade with you here......though it may have to wait until the weather warms in Spring.

Grabmebymyhandle,
I have some very tall Sansevieria trifasciata and Laurentii. They are about 4-1/2 feet tall. or just what exact kinds are you interested in. The more exotic ones I don't have much of now.

RE: good stuff comin

regretfully I cannot find the cord for my camera at the moment...sorry

woodnative, I dont think ill have any trouble getting it to grow, its not the pure white that sans sometimes have on the margins, its more like the banding striations on a typical trifaciata, just so extreme they make it look white...gosh I hate makin lists...it feels like howemork I put it off here as bad as I did in high school

Stush Im suppose the more exotic species, I have a nice 4 foot tri. that i inherited, its busted out of the last 2 pots its been in, I love it when they get big and rank like that...Id really like to have stuckii or fisherii, maybe the baseball bat, theres so many wonderful kinds when I scroll thru ebay, I really am not even sure what all kinds I wold like to have, im sure its a long list.

Currently I have these types or sans: Trifasciata, cylindrica, futura sp., golden hahnii, Jade Margenated Hahnii. I also have access to several more types/forms/species, But all are the more common types likely to be seen, Not collectors plants...

Ill find this cord soon.

one more

SOrry it took so long, the 3 cuttings are in slightly moist media now, and waiting for roots!

Those lighter ones might just be older growths grown in stronger light.

Only time will tell. Maybe the white will remain and have a great look or may darken with age. Hope they remain white. And I think it will be years befor they become whole plants in themselves. Maybe marlonmachado = Marlon Machado Will chime in here. He grows them from seed and have shown them in past posts.

they are in fact older growth, from larger plants than mine...Ive never seen any that are this white tho, i doubt its simply cultural differences, but I wouldnt be surprized, just disappointed...

Im really crossing my fingers that it takes well, my other cylindrica roots reliably though it does take it a few years to get its feet set and actually grow...

Has anyone seen a sans push a NEW growth point thru the middle of a plant like that one is, I bet its going to to look spectacular once it gets going!

In fact I got a Siam Silver that did this. It is a stolen growth in place of a rhizone growth. 'MichaelL' showed a Futura type growing out like this.
