Sansevieria or snake plants are native to Africa.
Light and position in the home
Unusual for succulents, Sansevieria survive low light and thrive in bright, indirect light with a few hours sun which means you have lots of choice where to display your plant.
Flowers and foliage
Medusa-headed with long snake-shaped and mottled leaves in silver-and-green with stripes of darker green. Tough-skinned and almost indestructible.
Watering and humidity
Needs just a good splash of water once the soil dries out and doesn't like sitting in water so allow the water to drain away completely.
The ideal temperature is 15 to 23 degrees Celsius. This plant will cope with lower temperatures to 10 degrees Celsius for a short while.
