Not Sanseveria
by: Jacki

Hi Mark,
You have a Gasteria, I'm not sure of the exact one, but at least that's a starting point for you.
For care, bright light, but not full sun, and thorough watering, but wait until it dries out between, and much less water if at all in winter. Good luck with it, it's a beautiful plant!

This page has a picture of the one I have, which is slow growing, but is now about 7" tall, and equally as wide. They seem to grow in a fan shape, not like a rosette.

It has similarities to Aloe variegata
by: Horsense

The shape of, & patterns on, the leaves remind me of:

Aloe variegata / Partridge Breast Aloe / Tiger Aloe.

I've never seen an entire Tiger Aloe plant shaped like that, though.

The lovely plant you have is a snake plant, also called mother-in-laws tongue. It has several names but it's one of the best air purifier plants you can have. It will thrive in most indirect even poor lighting, and prefers to get a bit dry between waterings. It needs less water over winter, and it's truly one of my favorite plants!
