‘Rhino horn’ is Sansevieria cylindrica treated with dwarf hormone. It can stay in the current shape for about 5 more years. Meanwhile it will produce an offspring, which will grow to be normal Sansevieria cylindrica.
Sansevieria was formally recognized as a separate genus of about 70 species, native to Africa, notably Madagascar, and southern Asia, it is now included in the genus Dracaena. While most of them are xeric plants of dry climates and rough terrain, they also thrive in moist tropical conditions. They will adapt from full sun, dry locations to moist and shady ones. They will also tolerate irregular watering and prolonged periods of negligence. Such adaptability makes Sansevieria to popular house plants, but also to invasive species when growing outside.
We ship only healthy (in pot) growing plants. We carefully remove the soil and wrap the roots in humid sterile coconut peat. Then we gently pack the rootball in a plastic bag. After that, we wrap the plant in newspaper and then in a strong cardboard box.
