Can you help identify this houseplant?

I bought this plant but it did not have a label. Can you help me identify it? It is small (maybe three to four inches wide, three inches tall)

The plant you have there is a Sansevieria trifasciata 'Hahnii' commonly called the dwarf birdsnest snake plant. They are quite indestructible as a houseplant, and enjoy to dry out thoroughly between watering.

I have one of the taller varieties of this plant and I tested it one time. Put it outside in the Spring . . . brought it inside in the Fall . . . and never watered it all Winter. It did fine.

These days??? I start to water it a bit come solstice time. It just does so much better! ;) lol
