Appearance: This plant is unique in that it often grows only one leaf, which is broad, thick, and stands upright. The leaf is a deep green, mottled with lighter green spots. The shape of the leaf, wide and tall, gives this plant its common name 'Shark Fin' or 'Whale Fin'.

Light: Sansevieria 'Shark Fin' is quite adaptable when it comes to light conditions. It can tolerate everything from low light to bright, indirect light. However, it should be kept out of direct sunlight as this can scorch the leaves.

Water: Being a succulent, it prefers to be on the dry side. The soil should be allowed to dry out completely between waterings to avoid root rot. In the winter, when the plant is not actively growing, waterings should be reduced.

Soil: A well-draining soil mix is essential to prevent waterlogging. A cactus or succulent mix, which generally contains more sand and perlite than regular potting soil, works well.

Temperature: Sansevieria 'Shark Fin' prefers warmer temperatures between 70-90°F (21-32°C) and doesn't tolerate cold well. It should be protected from drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Propagation: Propagation is typically done through leaf cuttings or division. For leaf cuttings, a piece of the leaf is cut off, left to callous over for a few days, and then placed in soil.

Pests and Problems: Sansevieria 'Shark Fin' is generally resistant to pests, but it can occasionally suffer from mealybugs, spider mites, or root rot if overwatered.

In summary, Sansevieria 'Shark Fin' is a unique and easy-to-care-for houseplant that's known for its singular, large fin-like leaf. It's an excellent choice for beginners or those looking for a low-maintenance plant.
