I am certain Stush is growing this Sansiveria. 'Bantel's Sensation. I was at Lowes yesterday and was in need of some plant retail therapy. With family illness and the winter I am a little depressed. Nothing helps more than some new plants.

I picked up other plants but they are not succulents so I will talk about them in the house plants forum but this was a plant I really wanted looking at Stush collection.

I am wondering if others that are growing this plant find it to not be stable. It looks like there are different width leaves and different colors growing in the pot.

Some of the leaves are skinny sword, Some are wide and and haf the leaf is white stripe the other side is green.

I am not sure if it is sporting or they put several different plants in the pot or is this just one of those plants that is not stable.

I took some pics against a white door to see if it is clearer how the markings are running down the middle of the leaf.

Mine was killed by root aphids coz I did not have it in full sun. Might buy some again and place in a sunnier spot. Some reversion is normal.

Cinta,
True no two leaves look alike but that is not a true reversion. And as Spitz said, some reversion is normal, I have never seen one on this plant. I currently have 15 plants w/pups and the nearest plant closest to it is in the 'Guineensis Species' is 'White Giant'.
Before I purchased these from Lowe's on clearance (4 pots full of 6 to 8 each) I tried them several times with out success, usually dying the first winter of crown root. This group seems to be immune of it. These guys pups and blooms a lot for me. Not like the ones I had before.
Cinta, did you buy that pot full of Bantel's ? they look nice.

NOTE; Bantel's Sensations and White Giant are not even close in relationship just looks. Bantel's S. can have many leaves to a stolen while White G. has only 3, with 4th being a rare existence. Also if any leaves of B.S. is rooted, it reverts back to S. trifasciata.

Yes Stush I brought the pot full. It has about 6 in the pot. The pot is bulging so I hope it last the winter without busting. I do not like to pot up in the winter.. I picked it up at Lowes.

Thanks Spitz, Planto, Hetty for the help.

I got depressed again and ordered five more plants from arid lands. *Blush*
What happened was walgreens ran out of my anti-depressant and I was without for a day.
Ordering the plants made me feel better. Plus I have my anti-depressant again now. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Here are the plants I ordered.
Cyphostemma juttae 4-inch pots
Dorstenia sp. (L&H 10341) 4-inch pots
Othonna arborescens 4-inch pots
Pachypodium bispinosum x succulentum 3-inch pots
Pachypodium horombense 4-inch pots
I promise not to order anymore plants from arid lands for a while. Angel

Adam,
Are you able to cope with a loss down the road. It happens to the best of us. I lost 2 containers of seedlings due to opening them too soon and by the next day, they laid flat down. Very disappointing and depressing for me. Two of which I can not replace. I love the pick me up of buying new plants that you've been looking for but to only see them die. Two sides my friend. Be careful. We care.

I agree Stush. I was thinking the same thing. Adam, we've been there and know the feeling. We become attached to our plants, and when we lose them, it cuts deeply, especially when we've put a lot of money into acquiring them. Or, as Stush said, when they are rare/irreplaceable. Sighing! We must learn to be balanced. Take care. Group hug

I will not get anymore plants from arid lands I feel better now. I know I should not get too many plants or else I will start neglecting some and I don't want that.

It's just that my mothers death left a huge void in my life and I feel the need to fill it sometimes.

I'll get four more live plants in the mail later this year from trades and that might be it for the year.

What I probably do then is work on breeding my plants to make hybrids and non hybrids.

Also I'll use material from my collection to make mini gardens.

Thumbs up With time and if you are religious, prayer, the hole/void in your heart will continue to heal and you will be better able to live/cope with the pain that you feel from such a huge loss. Just remember that we are here for you. Group hug

Adam, I use plant therapy, too. Sometimes just going out and pruning them or grooming or just taking pictures of them helps. If you're like me and run out of money from too much plant shopping therapy, these are good alternatives that seem to perk me up. I'm not experienced enough to do any breeding or hybridizing, but it sounds like it could help clear up some of that void you feel.

Speaking from some one who lost both parents. It's been years now but that void is never totally filled. The love of those who really loved you faults and all. Some times I still give a good cry (alone) to let it out. I know I am now alone in this world. It is good for me to read my bible and I find great encouragement form it. Good friends are the next best thing.

I agree when my mother passed away (my father has been gone a long time) I knew I had no choice anymore but to be a grownup. Pretty scary.
