The sansevieria Bantel’s Sensation is also often called the white sansevieria or simply Bantel’s Sensation. Named after the man who developed this plant – Gustav Bantel – it is a unique cultivar of the sansevieria trifasciata. Although this particular sansevieria was developed in a nursery, its parent plant is native to the tropical regions of western Africa.
Rare and unusual, sansevieria Bantel’s Sensation has distinctive white vertical striping in the leaves and is sometimes called White Sansevieria. The 2-5 cm wide leaves are narrower than most other sansevierias and in a container ‘Bantel’s Sensation’ grows up to a meter tall. Sweetly fragrant white flowers bloom during the long days of summer or when the plant is under stress, although this cultivar rarely seems to do so.
