Snake Plant – Sansevieria


Sansevieria trifasciata is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to tropical West Africa from Nigeria east to the Congo. It is most commonly known as the snake plantmother-in-law’s tongue, and viper’s bowstring hemp, among other names.

Sansevierias are some of the toughest plants you can find.

Whether indoors, in your garden or on your balcony, these spiky beauties can put up with almost anything.

They’re easy as can be, but there are a few things you should know.




It is an evergreen perennial plant forming dense stands, spreading by way of its creeping rhizome, which is sometimes above ground, sometimes underground. Its stiff leaves grow vertically from a basal rosette. Mature leaves are dark green with light gray-green cross-banding and usually range from 70–90 centimeters (28–35 in) long and 5–6 centimeters (2.0–2.4 in) wide, though it can reach heights above 2 m (6 ft) in optimal conditions.

The plant exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide using the crassulacean acid metabolism process, which is only present in a small number of plant species. It allows them to withstand drought.
