Default Question about propogating a fantastic looking Sansevieria

I am growing Sansevieria Trificiata "Beauty Queen" as seen in center
of pic below. I have taken two clones and as you can see, they both
came out all green. This plant is obviously a Chimera. My question is
does anyone out there know that if one of these normal looking plants
could eventually send out an offset that is closer resembling the cloned mother plant?

Anytime i've tried to root a cutting, they come up all green. The mother plant should put up a baby that looks just like her, then you can just seperate it.

Years ago, I read that you could take a leaf and cut it horizontally into sections, about 1 inch high, and root them, but they would all come out plain green. Tried it, and they were all green. The ones I have now, put out pups quite regularly, and they look like the mother.
