Mother In Law Tongue, Snake Plant (2 Pot Sizes)
Known as snake plant, mother in law tongue, sanseveria
Light: Although they are very forgiving, the sansevieria prefers bright light with some sun. They can adapt to full sun.
Water: Let the soil dry between waterings. During winter, reduce watering to monthly, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch. Err on the side of underwatering.
Temperature: They prefer warmth and will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 50ºF.
Soil: A loose, well-drained potting mix. They will do well in sandier soils.
Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.
These are one of the best houseplants for beginners and for striking displays. They are excellent in a grouping and will grow equally well on the floor or on table-top displays. Native to tropical Africa, the biggest danger is overwatering, especially in the winter. There are two low-growing varieties, but these are rarely seen in garden centers.
