The much sought-after Sansevieria Masoniana gets its common name “Whale Fin Sansevieria” from its unique broad-leaf. Like most Sansevierias, the Whale Fin is a slow grower, but its leaves can get much larger than its relatives.

Native to the African Congo, the Whale Fin Sansevieria is drought-tolerant making it the perfect plant for those who tend to forget a strict watering schedule. It can also tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions from low to indirect bright light.
