Notes for Identification:

Kenya Hyacinth (Sansevieria parva) is a much smaller plant than the normal snake plant. Smaller diameter spears, shorter, and tends to mound instead of just upright growth. Very sweet fragrant flower spikes stay in bloom quite a while. This plant requires very little care, water sparingly, and can survive in a low light area. Truly a easy care houseplant.
