Sansevieria: Snake Plant
The snake plant is a tropical plant which comes from Africa. A rosette of three-lane sansevieria can have up to six leaves. The original species' mature leaves are dark green in hue with pale transverse streaks. The leaves can grow up to 12-50 inches (30-120 cm) long and 1-4 inches (2-10 cm) wide. The leaf is flat, lanceolate, smooth, and taper upwards before ending in a spike.
LIGHT: Ideally, the Snake plant benefits from a few hours of light every day. Bright light encourages fast growth, and the plant will produce new leaves.
TEMPERATURE: Snake plants grow exceptionally well in average room temperatures. As long as the temperature is between 55°F and 85°F (13°C – 29°C), the sansevieria will thrive. The snake plant will grow in colder or hotter temperatures, but its growth will be affected.
WATER: Water a Sansevieria as often as the potting soil dries out. Only water the snake plant when the top 2” (5 cm) of soil is dry. Then, drench the soil until it drains from the bottom. The next time you need to water the succulent is when the soil is partially dry.
