Hi everybody,

Newbie here trying to entertain myself at the office while I'm working away from home for a while. Thread about that here:
The thread "Working in Houston for a month.. started an office garden. Would like advice." in Houseplants forum

Anyway, I'm going to post 5 times w/ 5 different plants. Here we go (bought in Houston, TX):

I agree, looks like S. gracilis! There's only one with a photo in the database here: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

It's hard to say for sure until it sizes up and takes in mature growth, the leaves look too short and stout, and that groove is a bit deep

I'd say it's sansevieria francisii but a young one, I think there's a few more that look pretty close as well as some uncommon hybrids from over seas that filter in from eBay.

Are the leaves tipped with a very sharp spine?
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
