[Sansevierias] plants in fashion

this is a fashion photo which displays what I think to the right is 
that super thick leafed Zamia furfuracea, the one with the ridges, a 
cylindrical leafed Sansevieria, lover right on the ground,  and the 
model's  purse is printed in a split leafed giant philodendron. 
Ignore the woman but be thankful a photographer chose this lovely 
setting.  https://www.instagram.com/p/BAOdoNHmR6x/

[Sansevierias] anyone remember this?

http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1995/01/23/orchid-fever?mbid=nl_151226_Daily&CNDID=18543694&spMailingID=8381902&spUserID=MjkxNzc4MDkwOTcS1&spJobID=822839831&spReportId=ODIyODM5ODMxS0

this fellow embezzled a couple or three thousand dollars from some 
Sansevieria fanciers, was written up in the New Yorker and was 
eventually made into a movie by the Coen brothers. and here is his 
story, reprinted from many years ago in The New Yorker. My head 
almost imploded when I read this! his plan for getting money was very 
well thought out, nothing I would do today, wanted Western Union 
money grams and stuff like that. Finally a friend from Texas drove to 
Florida and parked in front of his house for several days until he 
got part of what we had both ordered.

Thank you, Hermine, for sending this on.  I am not on FB and would not have known this, except for your considerateness.

Thanx, again,

Re: [Sansevierias] hereditary interest in Sansevierias



How fortunate for having at least this bit of family history.  The image on the tombstone is provocative, to be sure . . . .

Tx for sharing!

It is in Maspeth Long Island and he was a custom shoemaker and 
designer for some fancy shoe company. as far as I know, which is very 
little, he had no interest in plants. Nobody in my family had any 
interest in plants but myself. a member of your little group located 
this for me, by the way. Seemingly I have virtually no known ancestors!

[Sansevierias] S. patens N.E.Br. [1 Attachment]

[Attachment(s) from mlaforest05 <at> comcast.net included below]

Hi Herm and other listers,
Getting close to time to put Sansevierias in a warmer place where I live. Recent inspection brought a smile to me face when I saw a flower raceme emerging from S. Patens N.E.Br. J. Chahinian's book, The Splendid Sansevieria", says the flower stalk is "73cm (2 1/2 in long)"; he probably means 2 1/2 feet long. Unfortunately, the book has numerous editing errors such as this.
