Up to now the Swiss botanist Peter Bally was considered to have discovered this very popular Sansevieria. However, the field journals from 1960 provided on the Internet within the framework of the “Werner Rauh Heritage Project” prove that today's S. ballyi had already been discovered three years earlier by Werner Rauh during an expedition through Kenya. Collections are kept at the Herbarium Heidelberg (HEID).
