Welcome to the International Sansevieria Society website

The International Sansevieria Society (ISS) was formed in 2000 to bring together people interested in growing or studying the family Dracaenaceae and in particular the Sansevieria species and cultivars. The aim is to promote interest in these fascinating plants and increase the available knowledge of all aspects of their cultivation, ecology and correct naming. The society also aims to provide an opportunity for the free exchange of information between members and to increase the number of species and cultivars in cultivation.

The idea of the society was developed by Mike Phillips, Ziad Al-Witri, and Alan Butler, with the support of B. Juan Chahinian, who used to produce a journal in the USA in the 1990s and has himself written many articles and two books about Sansevierias.

Becoming a member of ISS means you are joining an international group and can, through the journal, communicate with like-minded people worldwide.

Donations to the International Sansevieria Society are utilized for publications, website features, and research. The ISS is an auxiliary organization of the Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society which is 501 3c tax deduction eligible. If you prefer a donation through mail, please send a check to:
