Sansevieria Fernwood is a pretty popular but frequently miscategorized plant.
This species is often confused with Sansevieria Bacularis. Bacularis and Fernwood can look similar in the pictures, especially in case of the smaller plants. But when they grow up, the difference is noticeable. Bacularis has a sparser and taller foliage, and unlike Fernwood the leaves are upright, cylindrical and have no longitudinal ribs.

Same is the case with Sansevieria Cylindrica, which is also recognized by it’s cylindrical leaves. However, Fernwood has concave channeled leaves and it is not a cultivar of Sansevieria Cylindrica.
Sansevieria Fernwood is in fact a hybrid of Sansevieria Parva and Sansevieria Suffruticosa. It was developed by Rogers Weld of Fernwood Nursery in California. And it is commonly sold under the trade names Sansevieria Mikado, Fernwood Punk or Fernwood Mikado.
The terms Mikado and Musica seems to be associated with both Bacularis and Fernwood. Musica usually refers to the normal length variety, and Mikado is a compact hybrid.
