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!!!

    I love my Whale fin. I am considering purchasing another. It was packed well and and arrived in excellent condition. I am very happy with my purchase.

    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.

  7. Mallory (verified owner)

    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!

    Ordered a large and it’s absolutely gorgeous. So many well-established plants in this pot.

    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

    The plants (3 in total) arrived in beautiful condition, and bigger than I had expected. My wife LOVES them! Once they have settled in for a bit, she is planning on separating them each into their own pots.

    I couldn’t be happier with my plant! I’ve wanted this for some time, now onto the next. Thank you!

Why others chose this plant.

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

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

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.

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?

2 years 3 months ago

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

2 years 3 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?

1 year 10 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.

Is it possible to get just a single leaf one?

1 year 9 months ago

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

1 year 9 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!

1 year 9 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 Can you send me a picture of the EXTRA LARGE one please . Just want to make sure that I really like it. Thank you.

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!
