Re: [Sansevierias] Sansevieria propagation Question



 ......Because a leaf cutting in sansevierias does not transfer the genetic "codes" necessary for a variegated plant to copy itself. These codes are reserved for the rhizome. If a variegated sansevieria leaf is severed to make leaf cuttings for propagation purposes, it can only produce two types of plants: either all green or all albino depending on WHERE the new plantlet originates on the leaf-cut surface. The young albino plant cannot survive if it is detached from the cutting, while the green plantlet will be fine. Nature considers variegation an abomination, a weakness, and it tries to weed out weakness.

Subject: [Sansevierias] Sansevieria propagation Question
Hello guys,
I was just thinking if reproduction by seed ensures genetic diversity and variation in plants, and if cuttings produce an exact clone of the parent plant, then why do variegated and  striated Sansevierias reproduce non-variegated and non-striated plants when propagated by a leaf cutting?

Re: [Sansevierias] Pot Splitter



Wow! Such a beautiful pot of variegated masonianas! One of these days you are going to want to divide this whole clump into several pots, however I would be tempted to just wait until next spring. You can ease the tension with a slit of the pot if you like. Meanwhile, nothing bad would be expected to happen.
The leaf that is connected to the bulging rhizome appears to be well up and out to me. I don't necessarily see a connection with the large white/yellow leaf and the bulge. The large white leaf is a fragile thing, so you are right to be concerned. Even a bruise can easily become an ugly brown spot. When you decide to depot and divide, wash off the soil with care and be mindful of its fragility. By all means I would keep the keep the white leaf with its mother leaf and rhizome from whence it derives nutrition.

Well, I am so amazed to have this beautiful white leaf growing by leaps and bounds.  The problem is, it looks like the pot is ready to crack open.  The question is whether to just wait and see, or go ahead and repot. I am really afraid of injuring the new growth, esp. the white leaf.  What to do?

  yes, the sharp shears or X acto knife and 
perhaps start at the bottom at a drainage hole, not where the pot is bulging.

Re: [Sansevierias] hair pulling time



That stuff is pretty sturdy and I think you will have NEW GROWTH  with patience.  It does, after all, naturally grow in a pretty adverse environment in the wild.

Re: [Sansevierias] hair pulling time



First don't panic they are incredibly hard, it may be scared for life but new growth will probably grow through the damaged bit in time. I would put it outside again in the shade under a hedge or shrubbery for a week or two then gradually bring it out into full sun after three weeks of shade.

Re: [Sansevierias] hair pulling time





Hermine,
Please calm down and spare your hubby AND your hair! IMHO, the survival of your peyote is in little or no doubt, especially if your peyote is the most popular species Lophophora williamsii (possibly v. caespitosa? there are only 2-3 speciosa in the Lophophora genus, I'm not sure). Please remember that American Indians, who use peyote for their rituals, only harvest the part that extends above the ground level, and allow the quite massive underground taproot to re-growth the green above-ground 'head' for future harvest.

[Sansevierias] ES 22565 finally flowered



Sansevieria sp. ES 22565
Well it has finally flowered, last night a good 20cm across each flower tube an average of eight was 121.96mm long open before opening 120.43mm. The inflorescence has a slight perfume of cocoa powder.
Certainly in the Sansevieria kirkii group possibly  the one know as Super clone.
I am hoping for some seed but that will be another storey.
