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.

    Just received my whale fin plant and it is exactly what I expected it to be. There are a lot of big leaves and even babies popping up. Why buy one fin online for $45 & $50 when u can get a whole planter full for $100.
    I luv this plant so get yours now you will not regret it. ORDER NOW!!!

    This plant has been on my wishlist for months and I was SO excited to see it on PlantVine. Despite its hefty price tag, I bought size medium and it arrived BEAUTIFULLY. It was packaged very well and it arrived in great condition. Some of the soil spilled but that is to be expected.

    Came as a free root but they wrapped it in a wet paper towel to carry it over. Worked perfect! The plant came very large, no damage, and even has a baby! I will definitely purchase from PlantVine again!

    The plants are lovely and they came to me relatively unscathed. The box the palms came in were strong
    but the carrier delivering them turned them over despite the labels that were all over the box.🤯 the plants are so lovely.

    Plants look fantastic, well packaged and quick. PlantVine is one of my favorite places to order from. Quality every time I have ordered. Shark fins were dry root, roots wrapped and look very healthy. I

Why others chose this plant.

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 :)


Got something to discuss?

Hello, how tall is the actual plant and how tall will it get?

1 year 1 month ago

Hi Mirza! Whale Fins typically stay very short and fat. Our 3 gallons are very similar to the picture in the product page and are between 12 to 18 inches tall, which includes the pot in this height. We definitely have the fullest ones compared to anyone. A whale fin leaf can reach around 2 feet tall when grown fully.

Hi Joey, Unfortunately, we were contacted by the Department of Agriculture that have updated & now are enforcing their new policies of plant shipments going to California. If an item is shipped to California at this time, it will be confiscated & disposed of. Due to this new policy enforcement, we are now having to stop all of our shipments going to California until further notice. We do apologize for the inconvenience and are working hard to get our our shipments back to California again!We will be updating our shipping page found here: with new updates as we have them.
