That's Sanseveria trifasciata futura 'Asahi'. What did you think I meant? AKA Sansevieria trifasciata 'Morgenstern's Futura Aurea'. I ask because both of mine are stackers and are getting quite large. Any pictures of Sans will do as well. I love going off topic to any thing.

Trying to count the leaves on these are like counting the leaves on a pineapple. Keep loosing count after 20.

I have never seen these anywhere. I did see a small sans that had futura in the name, but I had no idea what it could become. I messed up by not grabbing it. Yours have much nicer coloring and are really nice. Yours always look much better than any of my sans. You have the touch, Stush.

Laurie, I don't have the touch. I struggle with the hahnii group (S. trifasciata's smallest) and I do well with the futura group (S. trifasciata's mid-size). The futura group grows to about 12 to 15 inches. There are several kinds in this group.
Gold Flame is another nice selection;
