Sansevieria Hahnii Summary

Sansevieria Hahnii Physical Characteristics

Dark, glossy leaves characterize this dwarf succulent. It is stemless, and the leaves grow from a rhizome at the base. Sometimes the rhizome can appear above the ground and has a rich yellow shade. The leaves are grey-green with dark green variegation. These leaves’ base is concentrated on the rhizome, but they spread out in a funnel-like shaped rosette. It spreads quickly from underground from the rhizome, and it can form relatively dense clusters. 

It produces erect racemes that are usually above 40 cm tall. These racemes produce a few greenish-white flowers in clusters. The flowers have a beautiful fragrance, and they mature into globose 8-9 mm, bright orange fruits that can contain one or two seeds.
