A Bit About Sansevieria Plants
Sansevieria are one of the most under-rated house plants, but once you have one you’ll soon become a collector! Their display is sculptured and interesting and each variety has it’s own unique pattern, colouring and shape.
There are many reasons why a Sansevieria make a must-have house plant. They are an air-purifying house plant with excellent re-oxygenating properties, furthermore, most other house plants release carbon dioxide at night in the absence of photosynthesis, the Sansevieria continue to produce oxygen all night long.
The Sansevieria plant is also known as the Snake plant, Mother In Laws Tongue and Devill’s Tongue. They are one of the easiest house plants to keep and if positioned right, the Snake Plant will produce regular new leaves that rise out of the soil and on flat leaf varieties, unfurl as they go.
The Snake plant comes from Africa, Madagascar and Southern Asia meaning they are used to arid climates and cope really well inside your home’s atmospheric conditions. They prefer a well lit area, but cope really well in low light conditions. You may notice significantly less new growth in low-light conditions, but their interesting designer shape still make it a great house plant to have.
Mother In Laws Tongue plants can go for long periods of time without water, so if you are a little forgetful with watering then a Sansevieria is the house plant for you!
