Sansevieria

Sansevieria, commonly known as mother-in-law's tongue, devil's tongue, or snake plant, is a genus of about 70 species of plants native to tropical and subtropical regions. They have strappy leaves ranging from 20 cm to 3m tall, and forming dense clumps. The flowers are pale green.

CULTIVATION TIPS
Summer growers. As with all succulents, Sansevierias require a well-drained mix and moderate watering. Water frequently during the warmer months and keep fairly dry through winter. To maintain their best shape and colouration they are best grown in dappled sunlight.
