This is a Sanseviera trifasciata…whew say that three times. I named her Lydia. Mainly from Africa (Madagascar) and Asia is what I read. I didn’t know that once you buy one houseplant you would want more! I am going to stick with the two I have for now. It is a great option as I don’t want to plant a garden just yet. It is also a great option to a garden because I can handle these even if I am not feeling well.
