Sansevieria (which you may know as Snake Plants, or Whale Fin for this one!) have had a massive comeback in the last couple of years. They’re extremely low maintenance, proven to be the best at purifying the air, and can tolerate almost anything you can throw at them! The lone, paddle shaped leaf of the Masoniana is a great point if difference and interest in any plant collection.
Light: Direct light, indirect light, or shade
Sansevieria will tolerate any light level so long as there is some natural light in the room. Bright light will see them put on the most visible growth, but they will survive in deep shade too.
The only sure way to kill a sansevieria is to overwater it - make sure to let the soil fully dry out between waterings. How often you water will depend on the amount of light it's getting so be sure to check the soil has fully dried out by testing through the drainage hole at the base of the pot. The sun is stronger in Summer (this is also the natural growing season for most houseplants so they'll be thirstier) so they will need watering more during this time.
It can tolerate most levels of humidity found in the home, including areas with very dry air or a strong draught.
Sansevieria are one of the few plants that like having compact roots, so re-potting should be done very infrequently. Make sure to use a cactus soil or other free draining compost and plant into a pot with a drainage hole. Feed your Sansevieria during Spring and Summer to make up for the loss of nutrients that would usually come with fresh compost.
Propagating the Masoniana is extremely easy. In a happy spot you will likely see pups growing from the base of the plant. These can be separated from the mother plant and potted up into their own container, just make sure it has plenty of drainage. This will also maintain the striking "lone leaf" look of the parent.
