Our darkest Mother-in-law’s tongue is also our tallest, growing up to 3’ with narrow upward pointing leaves marked with gray-green wavy bands on a deeper green background. Color is darker, almost black, in lower light levels, and tends to be more pronounced on newer foliage. One of the very easiest houseplants you can grow, sansevieria practically thrives on neglect. Prefers indirect medium to low light. Allow to dry between watering. Plants benefit from having their leaves wiped down periodically.
Other names: Snake Plant, Mother-in-Law’s Tongue
Lighting: Medium/Low Light
Watering: Water when the soil is completely dry all the way down into your plant’s pot. If your drainage hole is accessible, check the drainage hole for moisture before you consider watering.
Growth: Upright; moderate grower
Special Notes: This plant is adaptable to very low light conditions - making it ideal for a dark corner in your home or a desk plant for your office. When in doubt, underwater rather than overwater a snake plant.
