Sansevieria Whale Fin, also known as Sansevieria masoniana, is a unique and striking variety of snake plant. Here is some information and care instructions for Sansevieria Whale Fin:

1. Description: Sansevieria Whale Fin is characterized by its large, paddle-shaped leaves that resemble the shape of a whale's fin. The leaves are thick, fleshy, and have a mottled pattern of dark and light green. The plant can grow up to 3-4 feet (90-120 cm) tall and wide, making it a statement piece in any space.

2. Light: Sansevieria Whale Fin can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from bright indirect light to low light. However, it thrives best in bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight for extended periods, as it can scorch the leaves.

3. Temperature: This snake plant variety prefers average room temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but is sensitive to frost and cold drafts. Protect it from cold drafts during winter.

4. Watering: Sansevieria Whale Fin is drought-tolerant and prefers to be on the drier side. Water your plant thoroughly when the top inch of the soil feels dry, and allow the excess water to drain out completely. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix specifically formulated for succulents or cacti. A mix that contains perlite or sand will help improve drainage and prevent waterlogging.

6. Humidity: Sansevieria Whale Fin is adaptable to different humidity levels and can tolerate average indoor humidity. It does not require any additional humidity, making it suitable for various environments.

7. Fertilizing: Snake plants are generally low-maintenance when it comes to fertilizing. You can feed your Sansevieria Whale Fin with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer once every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to weak growth.

8. Pruning: Pruning is not necessary for Sansevieria Whale Fin. However, you can remove any yellow or damaged leaves by cutting them off at the base. This will help maintain the plant's appearance and overall health.

9. Propagation: Sansevieria Whale Fin can be propagated through division or leaf cuttings. To propagate through division, carefully separate the offsets or pups from the mother plant and plant them in separate pots. Leaf cuttings can be taken by cutting a healthy leaf into sections and placing them in a well-draining soil mix.

10. Pests and Diseases: Sansevieria plants are generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, they can occasionally be affected by mealybugs or spider mites. Regularly inspect your plant for any signs of pests and treat them promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Sansevieria Whale Fin is a hardy and low-maintenance plant that can thrive in various indoor environments. With its unique foliage and easy care requirements, it can be a great addition to your indoor plant collection.
