Unique and uncommon, the Whalefin Snake Plant starts as a single wide leaf– resembling a fin emerging from the soil. The plant can (slowly) grow new leaves (“pups”), which can either create a fuller look or be separated to make a new plant. This harder-to-find snake plant makes a splash in any space!
