Sansevieria Ballyi is an attractive small houseplant specimen. This tough plant can thrive almost anywhere in any conditions. It has evergreen thin cylindrical leaves. Sansevieria Ballyi spreads by aerial stolons that grow out horizontally and land on the ground to form new plants.
Ballyi is named after the Swiss botanist, Dr. Peter Bally who lived and worked in Kenya from the 1930s till 1980. Although it had been cultivated for a while, the plant got its name later in 2004 by Len Newton. This small variety of snake plant has an even smaller dwarf cultivar called “Minnie”.
This plant belongs to the genus Dracaena from the Asparagaceae family.
