Details: The Snake Plant is one of those “impossible to kill” plants as it requires very little care. It is loved for its lanced leaves that are thick and tall with beautiful green and yellow variegation. They grow in clusters (rosettes) from rhizomes and are very easy to divide, giving you many baby plants.
The Snake Plant likes warmth and bright indirect light but will thrive even in a dark room. It has become very popular since it was part of the “NASA study” done on houseplants that clean the air and it got one of the highest marks on it. For those reasons they are ideal to decorate bedrooms.
Light: Bright indirect to low
Watering: Water every 1–2 weeks
Pet Parents: Toxic for pets
Plant Bio: The Dracena trifasciata was until 2018 known as Sansevieria trifasciata, but due to molecular discoveries the old genus is now considered part of the now even larger Dracena group. It is a tropical plant of the family Asparagacea. It’s native to west Africa, from Nigeria to Congo, can be grown outdoors from zone 10-12. Make sure you don’t overwater this plant or water in the rosette because it’s prone to root rot. It almost “likes” being neglected a bit
