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.

    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 🙂

    Hi! I always love your plants! They r healthy, and very healthy. Even after a long ride they look great. Sure don’t look like they’ve been riding in a truck for 3-4 days! Thank you for the great plants! Been buying from u for 4 years I think. Just great plants and great service. Thank you so much for being so dependable!!

  11. Robin (verified owner)

    The plant I purchased was for my sister and she absolutely loved it! She said it is a statement plant and required a special spot in her house. It was packaged well and met all expectations of size and beauty.

    Totally amazing

  13. Faye G. (verified owner)

    Beautiful masoniana, and fantastic sale price. One leaf has a slight amount of damage to its tip. I’m debating about trimming it. It’s got three leaves and a two inch shoot. It survived its trip up the coast from Fla to R.I. without much damage, but about 1/4 of its soil was all over the box. I just dumped it all back in the pot and patted it back down. Ready for its new home on a sunny windowsill. I love it. Thanks very much.

    My lil whale arrived well packed… It took awhile to unwrap her. It had two fins, so I was excited! She is enjoying the late summer days with all her new plant friends on the back porch here in zone 6B. Will bring them in under lights when the nights dip below 40.

    Though the plant arrived with damaged but the people in PlantVine were so helpful and courteous in solving the problem… so, I still give them 5. The plant itself is beautiful and healthy and I love it. This is the third time I ordered in this company and I’m always happy. I will definitely keep referring you to my family and friends. ❤️

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

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.

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

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

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 :)

Got something to discuss?

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

2 years 10 months 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.

Do you ship to California?

2 years 5 months ago

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.

2 years 4 months ago

Hi Hanna, Yes! We do have a single leaf cutting available! Our cutting will included roots. Thanks!

2 years 4 months ago

Hi, does this cutting come in a small nursery pot, or is it just the cutting and some packing peanut type things? Thanks!

2 years 4 months ago

Hi Kelly,

Our cutting comes with roots as depicted in the picture labeled cutting. Our 1 gallon does come rooted into dirt.

Hi Jared, Our Extra Large size will look very similar to the one in the stock photo! It will be very full oversized fins. That are hard to come by in this size!
