Sansevieria - Snake Plant

sansiviera.JPG

Sansevierias, also called snake plant, is a really bulletproof and easy plant to grow. Drought tolerant, vigorous, sturdy and definitely not fussy, sansevierias are the perfect for the beginner house plant aficionado.

Their tall, upright form lends great to a minimalist or boho esthetic, and their various patterns and textures lend themselves well to contrasting with other houseplants. They like warm and humid environments - if kept too dry, it can dry and brown out at its tips - but will survive in less ideal environments as well.

Sansevierias actually like growing in cramped environments - so a small pot is actually better for it to grow rootbound in. Low and squat pots are usually the norm for these plants.
