i bought this plant as a semi baby, it had 3 groupings and was about 5-6 in tall, i didnt want it inside no more so instead of putting it in to my yard waste bin i decided to plant it out side, i live in seattle, zone 8 a-b u decide. eithor way it is not supposed to live here,, well each winter for the past 3, it has died on the outter leafs and in the spring the new ones come up regenerating, it has been fun to watch, although my friend who is from mexico said i was tourturing it, but it has survived almost 4 years so i think it is surviving!! not suffering!

I do like this plant a lot--it's just...well it seems like a slow grower. It's in a west window with plenty of sun. I've had it for 3 months now, and it didn't really grow since I bought it. I do love the color of the plant, but I just wish it was a faster grower.

Nice looking and fairly common cultivar of Sansevieria... not sure what species it really is. Has wide, pale green leaves (nearly silver) that shoot out of the ground without a stem (underground). Very drought tolerant plant, but not as cold hardy as some (didn't do well outdoors for me, but may have more of a problem with being wet at the same time it was cold, in the winter here in southern California). Does best as a pot plant, but is toxic (has oxylates that cause oral and throat irritation) if chewed or eaten. Keep away from housplant-crazed dogs.
