House Plant - Item 020 - Sansevieria Masoniana "Whale Fin"



Retail Value: $60

Sansevieria Masoniana, aka Mason's Congo, Whale Fin, Shark's Fin, it got its name because of the unique shape of its unusually wide, paddle-like leaves. Though slow-growing, the Whale Fin reaches impressive size compared to other members of the genus. Its leaves are beautifully mottled with a yellow stripe variegation running from base to tip.  Like all Snake Plants, the Whale Fin is extremely easy to care for, thriving with little maintenance and great for beginners. They store carbon dioxide acquired at night for use during the day and releases oxygen (one of the end products of photosynthesis) at night when the pores open. This helps it to maximize efficiency in cleaning the air, as found in a study conducted by NASA.
