ISS subscriptions

I have had one or two early renewals for the Sansevieria Society. Thank you if you are out there! 

You should be aware that the rate for airmail delivery of the journal for countries outside Europe has been
REDUCED as a result of various savings we have been able to make. The normal subscription rate is £15 (US$
24) which is for surface mail outside Europe. For airmail it is now US$ 32 for 2003 subscriptions (covering
journals 7, 8 and 9).

Best wishes
Alan

I purchased an unusual-looking plant of 'Laurentii' recently


Hi, everyone,

I recently purchased an unusual-looking plant of 'Laurentii'. Its leaves are broad; looking more like
those of, say, S. trifasciata 'Futura' Simplex. The margins on the leaves of my new aquisition are about as
broad as the margins on the leaves of the latter.

The leaves of my new plant do not are straighter and thicker than 'Laurentii'. Please can any one tell me what
the name of my plant might be. My plant did not have a label when it was sold.

Thanks.

Kind Regards,

George Dixon

Yellowing Leaves

Dear All,
I vaguely recall reading a message post about yellowing leaves on 
Sansevierias. I can think of four possible causes which I have listed 
below:-

Excessive Neglect
Chlorosis
Plant Virus
Thievaliopsis

Does any one know of other causes/

Regards,

Emma Stokes-King

ID Sansevieria sp, see photo

Please have a look at the following plant to get an ID:
it is in Photos-Jover-Sansevieria sp   
or:
http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/sansevierias/vwp?.dir=/Jover&.dnm
=Sansevieria+sp.jpg&.src=gr

I just bought a big pot with 5 plants.
They are heavy, strong plants grown in full sun.
The young plants were all aerial sideshoots and each plants was 
growing with many aerial roots to the soil.
It looked like a floating plant. I never have seen that on that way 
with a sansevieria.

I know that pinguicula is often called the walking sans because of 
it's arial roots..

I don't know what your plant is but I love it!

My greenhouse's first year

Hello to everyone:
I thought I'd tell you all the results of my greenhouse and it's first winter here in zone 4b of Minnesota.  I
was able to keep my greenhouse at an average of 48F at noc. and about 58F during the day.  I had a 3 day spell of
36F during the winter due to a miscalculation in fuel consumption.  I have all species but about 3 or 4.  The
plants that completely died on me are pinguicula, arboresense, eilensis(wasn't doing good anyway. 
Tears in my eyes), Trif. bantel's sensation, and yellow variegated parva(went first and early).  The
plants that partially lost the root systems on last years growth but retained older portions of the root
sytems are kirkii var. kirkii, stuckyi, intermedia, and aubrytiana.  All the rest survived and are
growing pups.  I find it interesting that the pinguicula was in a 150 gallon growing bed right beside
hallii, blue bat, and trif. gold flame.  Those three made it through and are producing pups.  Leopard bat
seems to be unaffected also and it was in a
  colder spot than most others.  I also have several highly variegated hahnii types that made it through with
no problems.  All plants are kept completely dry over the winter.  Two of my dwarf suffruticosa types
flowered during this time.  They are in hanging baskets.  The floor of the greenhouse is insulated but I
think that putting the pots of arboresense, Trif. bantel's sensation, kirkii var. kirkii, aubrytiana,
and intermedia directly on the floor could have played a large role in their demise.  Next year I plan on
bringing a fair amount of my more sensitive Sansevierias into my house for the winter.  I hope all are having
good success with their plants.  Good growing!

Re: ID Sansevieria sp, see photo

Thanks, Suetaylorme, 
I did a search on the web for S. pinguicula and you could be right.
But maybe there could be some more help from this group to ID this 
one.

Thanks, Jover
