Recently Shipped Sansevieria masoniana 'Whale Fin'



Nicknamed the Whale Fin, the Sansevieria Masoniana features uniquely shaped paddle-like leaves. Though slow growing, the Whale Fin can reach a truly impressive size compared to other members of the genus. Its leaves have a distinctive mottled dark and light green pattern that adds a lovely touch to any room.

Like all sansevierias, this plant is famous for its air-purifying abilities. It’s a great gift for plant newbies, as it requires very little maintenance, and thrives in a wide range of light conditions.

    I am pleased with my whale fin plant. It took a while to get here, but they took care in watching the weather and not sending it until it was safe to do so, so it didn’t freeze. I would buy from them again. Thank you!

    This is my second Whale Fin purchase from PlantVine and I am extremely satisfied. It was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Just a note, the Whale Fin I ordered last fall has grown a pup! Or is it a baby ‘Fin’? Either way, I am excited!

    It took a while to receive because of weather in my region, but it was well worth the wait. I received a healthy, large plant with multiple leaves (!) I knew I was going to get a quality plant (I’ve ordered from PlantVine before) but I was still pleasantly surprised with what I received. Thanks, PlantVine 🙂

Why others chose the Sansevieria masoniana ‘Whale Fin’

I purchased this plant because youtuber Miscellaneous Michelle purchases these from Plantvine and the pots are always so full that they burst the plastic pots. Glad I finally found them in stock and can't wait to see my full pot!!

I purchased a Whale Fin Plant from Home Depot about 3-4 years ago. The plat had two fins when I purchased it and it cost $14. I have not seen this plant again. This plant is a rarity and this is why I purchased this plant. Also, this plant is not high maintenance, very easy to care for.

The most unique sansevieria. Almost like art. Catches everyone's attention when they come in, & I've been dying to get my hands on a "bucket" of them. So excited about this purchase.


It’s been on my wishlist for a while. I love Sansevierias/Dacenas

Been on my wish list for some time! Stunning statement plant!

These are hard to find. I am so excited to get it

I have wanted a whale fin sansevieria for so long and they are hard to find in my area and over priced for just one leaf alone. So I am so excited to finally get one and ofcourse I went for the large one;-)

I’ve always wanted one of these because they are such beautiful statement pieces!

A friend recommended.

Large, sculptural and easy care. Becoming my favorite Sansevieria.

Gift for my father. He has wanted one for many years, and I finally found one here. I chose PLANTVINE based on a friends recommendation.

Whale Fin Snake plant is hard to find. This is one of the only sellers that has it.

Can’t find a better price than this. I’ve searched everywhere. Why pay for a cutting when you can get a whole plant

Love this plant

I am desperate to add this exotic to my collection and it is rare and difficult to find in my area. So I was excited to find one here. Plus I have heard youtubers mention making plant purchases here, so I felt I could trust them

It’s very hard to find in my area and when I discovered that Plant Vine had it, I had to snatch one up.

Saw this Sanseveria on youtube and had to have it

Honestly because my husband really adored the Whale Fin, and wanted another one! I really enjoyed it being apart of our collection also. Beautiful leaf to have and easy up keep!

I think this sansevieria mansoniana is so beautiful and unique plant I have ever seen!

Amazing plant on my wish list which I can now cross off :)
