Desparately Seeking Not Susan, but ID for PF1086?

A couple of years ago, Norma (bless you Norma) gave me a plant labeled PF 1086, or 1036, or perhaps 1066.  At the time she wasn't sure of where she got the plant.  Anyway here's a photo. It reminded me of S. canaliculata, until this year when it put out this stolon that is reaching for the sky. The first leaf on the stolen is grooved (normal I suppose), and the spike is round without any groove. The longest leaf is about 1.5'  Does this plant ring a bell with anyone?

Dale don't feel badly, I killed off my first 20.  I just didn't believe they could go the winter out where I live with out any water all winter, but they did, and I didn't lose nary a one.  Dale I have 'Pearl'  for you. Norma

Re: Unidentified Sans

Interesting, mine isn't stacking, but it IS finally sending out a pup after having it a couple years...

Sue,

Now that you mention it, I too have a pinguicula that is rather stacked. I have had it for at least 5 years, and it has not changed a bit except for getting taller. Only time will tell what it decides to do.

I think I've sent the picture around before, but here it is again.

Hi, Russ,

I've had a plant for years that looks just like the one in your
picture. As I recall, it was received as a pinguicula showing
"stocking behavior".

Re: See what did I tell you!

Welcome, Bill. I lived in Utah for several years. :-)
 
We're happy to have all Sansevieria lovers here. There are so many knowledgeable people here, it'll blow your socks off. ;-)

See...what did I tell you - a very friendly group. Thanks again.
So
several of you asked for details - so fasten your seat belts. My
name
is Bill (obviously) and I grew up in Utah. Yes, I am a Mormon
(member
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and I have
enjoyed
the commentary from the Jewish members of the group in the last few
days regarding kosher beef. Interesting stuff! No, I don't have
multiple wives (although some of my ancestors probably did) and
contrary to the belief of some, I AM a devout Christian.
Ok...enough
of that. I have a BS in biology from Southern Utah University and a
MS in entomology from Oregon State (I lived in Corvallis, Oregon for
4
years before moving to Colorado). I am 32, married (going on 5
years), have a 3 year old little boy and a second child on the way
in
January. I am currently trying (desperately) to finish up a PhD in
biological education at the University of Northern Colorado. No, I
don't study plants (although I have had several botany courses,
including plant taxonomy over the years) - I actually study venoms
(snakes, spiders, etc.) I have become much more of a biochemist
than
I ever thought I would. We live in Greeley, which is about an hour
north of Denver and an hour south of Cheyenne, WY. Obviously with
the
climate here I am limited to growing things indoors (except during
our
HOT summers - although not as hot as California lately). Although I
have had Sansevierias for years (the common grocery store varieties)
I
have just recently (in the past 2 years) become REALLY interested in
the genus. My collection is small as I only have 3 species and 4 S.
trif. varieties. (But due to the generosity of some in the group,
my
collection will soon expand! THANKS!) I should send photos (and will
when I get a few minutes) because I'm not sure of the ID on a couple
of my
plants. Once again, I am very happy to be a part of the "family"
(one
of the cousins) and look forward to learning much from you all.

Best,
Bill

another dumb question

Some of my haworthias, plants of South Africa, bloom in the winter, obeying the "call of the wild".  Others choose to bloom now, having been "domesticated" (acclimated) ?
 
Sans, being of southern latitudes, should NOT be in dormancy in our winter?  What am I missing?
 
What makes some plants "adjust" to a new setting, while others insist stubbornly on continuing to do things "the old way"?

Re: Hermine's photos & Jade Dwarf Marginated?

I remember this plant, such a beauty!!! I replaced the one I lost to mealies last year a couple months ago. Sure hope I can keep this one alive...

Dale, you aren't following your own advice, which I have taken to heart.

Throw away the dead plant. Wash the pot, toss the label!
Ahhhhhh. Feels MUCH better.

Re: See what did I tell you!

Good for you, Dale. I still think you should try Pearl Young, it is one of my favorites. And I agree about the top dressing. I've started doing that, and I really like the results. I try to make sure the potting soil stays just below the crown, and then backfill in with top dressing. I'm hoping to avoid rot this way, but only time will tell...

Thanks for the bio, Bill.  A few suggestions if you're going to collect sans. Others here will refine, disagree, and expound endlessly on some of these points, but its what we do. :-) 
    Over time they can become large plants, some have pointy tips (dangerous to kids and pets if on the floor), so think of a place where they can "winter" safely.  They "rest" during the winter and need less water.  Use a soil that drains quickly, feed in summer and water liberally when the weather is hot - but never on the crown or it might rot - many of us water from below, but occasionally the plants seem to enjoy a good flushing.
I've been collecting sans for only a couple of years and this is the first year I can say I'm satisfied with how my plants are growing. Even my variegated ones are doing well (hoorah).  Perhaps one reason is I now use a pebble top dressing that helps to retain moisture in the gravelly soil I use.  By this time next year, I'm sure I'll have many pups to share and exchange.
Good luck,
Dale

Re: Diana Pederson's possible back surgery

Best of luck Diana. If you believe in the power of prayer, then I'll add mine to the mix.

Everyone: If you believe in the power of prayer, please say a pray for me
tomorrow. I just got the call to go see a back specialist. I don't know if
this is just to schedule additional mri's of my poor back (s-curviture) OR
if he will have enough information to make a decision on whether surgery can
help.

I'm not scared because I trust Jesus Christ to take me through whatever is
ahead. Just pray that decisions will move ahead quickly so I don't spend
weeks wondering what to do.

I WANT TO GET SOME MORE SANS BEFORE IT SNOWS! If surgery is coming, it
needs to be over and I need to be home no later than the end of September
for safe shipping.

Getting a new parakeet (Lineolated Parakeet from Central America) is also on
hold until surgery is over.

If I'm stuck on a walker permanently, I guess I'll just have to get used to
it but it definitely makes me FRUSTRATED.

I have 21 new Cryptanthus (a bromeliad from the Amazon rain forest for those
who don't know) trying to root. Sometimes they need a bit of bottom heat
but I wouldn't want to go off to the hospital and leave a heat mat going
under them. Might just burn down my townehouse.
