It is a common Mother In Law's Tongue, but I can't find the specific scientific name. The ones already listed are not what I have, a common nursery variety, nothing special, a NOID I'm sure. I have a bloom on mine I'd like to show y'all. How should I list it??

Thanks Dave! Here's the flower bud. I hope to catch it when it blooms.

Yes. Thanks I got that far. But does his have another name like "Moonshine" , "Silver Frost" or "Black Gold", like the others?

Cheryl, those names are called cultivars. Whether your plant is a cultivar is a hard thing to determine. In cases like this, those images can simply be put in the main plant's page, and I will import them for you now that Janet has ID'ed them. Smiling

if I'm not mistaken this Sansevieria plants mutated,
derived from the cuting leaves of Sansevieria lourenti.
