Dracaena/Sansevieria masoniana (Whale Fin)


Sansevieria masoniana are affectionately referred to as “Whale Fin” due to their very large and robust leaves that protrude from the soil in a way that could resemble the fin of a whale. With age and maturity, these specimens can grow upwards of 4 feet in height! They are VERY SLOW growers and enjoy plenty of light to keep growth rates more active.

Sansevieria are considered LOW LIGHT TOLERANT, but grow best with indirect light. Native to arid parts in Africa, these plants grow best with longer dry-out periods, watering only when the soil feels completely dry. Pot in a well-draining substrate.
