I looked a long time to find this plant. I thought it was a sansaveria when I was looking. Felt stupid when I brought it home

Looks like rattlesnake plant to me as well.. what color is the back of leaves?? Thats how you can be more sure

I thought it was Rattlesnake plant until I saw they were normal leaves with a burgundy color on the underside of the leaves. @cyndi definitely not a Sansevieria But has the looking of the Rattlesnake for sure. That’s probably the biggest reason it came home. Haven’t been able to find a Rattlesnake Plant or ever seen one other than pictures.

The burgundy underside is from rattlesnake plant. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/calathea-plants/calathea-rattlesnake-plant-care.htm

Look under the encyclopedia entry you have this under and closely compare them as well.

@cyndi I’ve done a lot of research on rattlesnake plant because it’s one of my wishlist plants. This zebra plant has special care with watering I didn’t know about until I got home and looked it up. Kind of like the Rex Begonia Fairy. Doesn’t like hard water minerals or chlorine. Filtered or distilled water only.

Ok ..just these leaves look to narrow.. but like you said you did your research.. best wishes on your new plant.

Ok I’m wrong it’s a rattlesnake plant @cyndi I’m sorry for not trusting your help and thanks @heatherdirtyhands for the second opinion it made me research more with a second opinion . I have the green thumb but screw up the names often. Only been doing this for a little more than a year
