- Variegated Snake Plant,
- Goldband Sansevieria
Sansevieria Trifasciata, also known as Snake Plant or Mother-In-Law’s Tongue, is a hardy drought-tolerant plant native to tropical west Africa from Nigeria to Congo. Adapted to arid environments, the Sansevieria developed CAM photosynthesis, allowing it to open its stoma at night and close it during the day to reduce the loss of water. They are known for removing toxins and purifying the air. There are multiple cultivars of Sansevieria Trifasciata that come in varying sizes, heights, and color patterns, though they all grow vertical, spear-like foliage in a characteristic rosette pattern.
While Sansevieria Laurentii plants do best in bright filtered light, they are adaptable and tolerate partial shade and low light conditions, as well as fluorescent lighting, making them ideal for most rooms in a home and office settings.
Your Snake Plant should be watered when the top inch of the soil is dry, but it is forgiving of infrequent waterings.
Sansevieria Laurentii plants prefer temperatures between 55⁰F to 85⁰F degrees, but can withstand temperatures as low at 42⁰F.
Because Snake Plants are native to poor rocky soil, avoid overfertilizing.
Sansevierias are well known for helping purify the air. Just one plant can efficiently clean 100 square feet of space!
Unlike most other plants, Sansevieria Laurentii exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide during the nighttime, which means that it can better conserve water and withstand droughts.
Native to the tropical regions of West Africa
