Sansevieria is a truly remarkable and striking easy care houseplant. It belongs to the family Asparagaceae, native to the tropics of West Africa. It's an ever increasingly popular indoor plant and much of this has to do with its near indestructible qualities. However the Snake Plant is also desired for its upright and erect leaf habit which fits in to almost all locations in the home from both traditional to modern day settings.


  • Place Sanservierias in moderately bright or filtered light. Good locations include a spot in front of a north-facing window or in front of a bright, sunny window covered by a sheer curtain. Although the plant tolerates low light, bright light brings out the colors in the leaves. However, intense light may cause the edges of the leaves to turn yellow.
