Sansevieria masoniana - Whale Fin - Masons Congo

$11.95

This gigantic succulent is very rare. Its mottled green leaves stand 3 feet tall and are 10" across. Related to our skinny Mother-In-Law's Tongue, its unexpected dimensions are startling.

Whale's Fin is an impressive specimen for large gardens and a fine potted plant indoors. It very will tolerate low light or a bright window and thrives on neglect. It only needs a container heavy enough to keep it upright and well-drained soil. Almost no water.

Outdoors in zones 9-11, Whale Fin is hardy to 30*F. It should be grown in sandy soil and watered almost never. In bright light, it may send up a stalk of white flower clusters from its center.
.
The dense mottled leaves grow enormous if given the room. There are reports of it growing 6' tall, but it takes several years before going vertical. This plant was collected in what was once called the Belgian Congo, which no longer exists. The seeds are almost as rare.
