The Sansevieria Zeylanica Snake Plant shrub is one of the most low maintenance indoor plants you can grow.
Commonly called Bowstring Hemp, it is very close relative to Mother in Law’s Tongue for the long vertical thin leaves that resemble long swords. The leaves are banded by shades of green and dark green with slight variegation. This evergreen perennial plant spreads in its container or the ground by rhizomes that pop up through the soil.
It is technically a flowering plant, although it rarely blooms when grown indoors. Grown outdoors you may see this tropical plant bloom during the spring and summer growing seasons. They can tolerate neglect and even people without a green thumb can grow them. Snake plants are loved by many for their easy care & maintenance.
There are many Sansevieria Zeylanica benefits. Snake plants are known for their air purifying qualities; they produce oxygen to clean the air while reducing air pollutants. They add a touch of green foliage and feng shui to any home decor. It is the perfect house plant to have in your home office, bedroom, bathroom, or sunroom. You can even plant them outdoors.

ZEYLANICA SANSEVIERIA CARE
Sansevieria plant care is easy. They can tolerate a variety of light conditions including low light but they thrive in partial sun to partial shade in bright indirect light. Full sun light may scorch the sword shaped leaves.
Sansevieria soil should be well draining. Avoid wet soil as this can cause root rot. Make sure to choose a container with a drainage hole and do not overwater.
You can repot Sansevieria when it outgrows the container it is growing in. They like to be slightly root bound so only repot when the plant really needs it or the leaves start to deteriorate. The Sansevieria Zeylanica height can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 1 foot wide at full maturity.
Snake plants are grown as indoor houseplants in temperate climates. They can be grown outdoors in USDA growing zones 9-11 where the weather is warm all year long. Water the air purifying plant whenever the soil feels dry to touch, usually about once a week.
*Disclaimer: Sansevieria is toxic to cats, dogs, and humans if ingested.
