Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 30, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- As with many Sansevieria, the identification is difficult. I believe what I have is S. rhodesiana. It is a medium height, fan shaped plant with cylindrical leaves mostly without a canal. An individual grown in an outdoors pot did not survive several weeks of freeze in 2013, but an in-ground plant has now survived, with cover, down to 26 F and many mild freezing nights without cover. It grows in strong shade in summer and light in winter. It gets summer water every other week and none in winter.
