Sansevieria zeylanica is one of the most common snake plants and a go-to for beginner plant parents. They grow vertically from the base in a tight clump, and shoot out thick and succulent leaves, where they store their water supply, making this plant hardy and drought tolerant.
Native to South East Asia.
Sansevieria prefer bright, indirect light, though can live in very low-light environments as well as direct sunlight.
This plant is low-maintenance from a watering standpoint. Allow soil to dry out completely in between waterings then water thoroughly, fully saturating the soil.
Sansevieria will grow 'pups' from rhizome roots that can be removed and propagated to grow on their own. Fertilize: Fertilize once every two weeks during the active growing season. This is limited to spring and summer in temperate climates.
Approx. 15-20" tall x 5-8" at the widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
