A Sansevieria Plant, originally from South Africa, is another hardy almost impossible to kill houseplant that thrives on neglect. Sansevieria plants, also called a Snake plant and Mother in Law’s Tongue plant, can be used as table plants or, when taller, stately floor plants. Certain varieties such as the “Trifasciata” have long, thick, stiff, upright leaves that can reach 4ft. in length while other varieties, such as the Hahni, have very short compact leaves that are only 4”.
Light: A sansevieria can be placed anywhere in a room from the darkest corner to the brightest window. The better the light, the faster a sansevieria grows.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out before watering.
Fertilizer: Feed monthly when actively growing.
Care Tips: Over-watering is the main reason sansevieria plants die.
