Diana, I am certainly sorry to hear bad news, I'm still waiting to here from a dear friend, he was in New Orleans, he is safe, but may have lost his home. It's going to take a lone time for them to dig out. I hope they were at least able to save they animals.I may have one to send, I am getting ready to ship more out. It's the time I don't have, what does one do for boxes for these long plants? There is a short one called Compacta, and a Silver called Trifasciata silver, which I can't separate this year again. I only do them every three years. I wish I could get new ones for postage or a trade. I'm still looking for Nealsonii the one with the edges that look like S. trifasciata on the outside edges. I guess it's called banded S. nealsonii. Never had that one. Diana they don't get changed, they are just renamed for convience of the seller, he doesn't know the name in the first place. The species are renamed because they just weren't published correctly to the modern rules, so the old names are just dumped or giv en syn. rateing. That way the new publisher has something to write about, and gets the credits. I just went outside I have a plant called what I believe to be S. tri. 'Compacta' shorter leaves but has the same coloring as the rest. I like the plant. There is also a 'Wagner Gold' which looks the same to me, I just can't see the difference. I don't know if I have an extra of that, I have just repotted and gave my extra plants away just last year. They take so darn long to grow until they get a good start. Send me an address. It's a lot of work to repot, and I had help, getting them out of the pot is the most difficult for me, my hands and wrists are not strong enough any more.

I've been spending a lot of time with Bob Smolley's list of Sansevierias. I
know some are misidentified but this looks like one group of plants that
needs some formal dna study done to finally sort everything out.
Here is a short list of some I would really like starts of:
The S. Trifasciata cultivars -- I have the basic trifasciata and T.
Laurentii. I'd love any of them but have a special desire to have some of
the shorter growing ones like Lillian True (or Sliped stripes --whatever is
right now) and Silver Laurentii. Am open to all and any of the Trifasciata
cultivars including the Hahnii group.
If someone has some to offer for postage, it would really be appreciated. I
am trying to build a good collection before it gets too cold to ship to
Michigan--anytime before November 1st is normally okay. After that, it
simply isn't worth the risk.
I am trying hard to learn correct names for the cultivars but I know some
keep getting changed. Am in contact with Juan and the society as necessary.
Thanking you in advance for any that people can offer.
Oh, Steve J. told me that "parva" was one of the fastest growing species
along with "dooneri". I have some parva coming but would really like a 2nd
plant. I'd also like 2 starts of "dooneri" if anyone has extra.
I'll try to put together a possible list and see what others think. I'd
really like people that see my collection realize that snake plants are so
much more than those simple green plants!
I just learned that my nephew's house was destroyed by the hurricane. He
lives in Gulfport Mississippi. His truck, located at the air force base,
was damaged by the horrible winds. He said 70 ft. cement light poles were
snapping like toothpicks on the base.
