This hardy plant is an ornamental, succulent-like, plant that grows upward. Often called “snake plants” these do best by drying out and being ignored. They are a fan favorite because they are capable of adjusting to many light conditions, and can handle missing a watering or two. It is important to have quick-draining media to prevent any standing water that can lead to root rot and damage. This plant is known for its stout, cylindrical spears that spring up in well-draining media. Sansevieria grow from rhizomes, allowing this plant to be easily propagated and gifted. You may often find these cylindrical spears tied to resemble a braid. Grown indoors, these usually range between one to two feet in height.
