Sanseveria trifasciata-Also called Mother in Law Tongue
Snake plants make the best house plants, as they are extremely difficult to kill. While good light helps them grow, they can survive on low light levels. Perfect for the forgetful waterer. They can get up to 1m tall if transplanted to an appropriately large pot, but can remain in smaller containers.
Bright indirect light with a few hours of direct sunlight is ideal but it can survive on less. Allow plant to dry out between watering and is drought tolerant. Place in a sunny window (south facing) in the winter months, for best results. Plant in a well draining soil medium.
