Sansevieria laurentii is one of the most popular houseplants worldwide.

Expert Tip

Snake Plants thrive on neglect, just make sure not to overwater it! Otherwise, it can survive in most lighting conditions and can survive without watering for prolonged periods of time.

Care & Size Guidance

Snake Plants are a brilliant choice for both new and seasoned plant owners alike, providing impressive towering vertical forms whilst being one of the easiest plants to look after.

Though it tolerates shade, it is at its best in well lit environments. Nonetheless, it is a slow growing plant in any lighting conditions.

Water when the soil has dried out several centimetres, allowing it to dry out further in winter months, never left sitting in moisture.
