I just bought one of these plants tagged as Sansevieria Mikado. I see Mikado all over the web, but it's not an official name according to the CAT site. I looked up Sansevieria sulcata in the CAT site, and it says that canaliculata is a synonym for sulcata. Should my photos be put under Sansevieria sulcata?

Karen, according to the Catalogue of Life, S. canaliculata is the accepted name and S. sulcata is the synonym.

You are totally correct, Zuzu. I had to go back in my history and look again, and have no idea how I reversed it in my head!
