Sansevieria ‘Moonshine’ Summary

Sansevieria Physical Characteristics

This is a stemless plant whose upper structure is entirely comprised of foliage. Its leaves develop from a yellowish rhizome and are silvery in color when grown under indirect sunlight, which it prefers. Also, each leaf has a dark green strip all around the margin. They have faint bands that run horizontally on the leaves. 

These leaves are rather broad, curved at the bottom where they band together into a pipe but open up as they rise. The widest part is in the middle, which can be as comprehensive as four inches before tapering towards the end. It blooms infrequently; you might have it and never see it flower. However, its leaves are enough compensation.
