Sansevieria trifasciata also widely known as Mother in Law’s Tongue or Snake Plant is a really easy and rewarding house plant and is one of the most efficient plants at cleaning toxins from the air.

Sansevierias are succulents and so are used to hot dry conditions and thrive indoors in a warm room. A sunny windowsill is ideal but your plant will tolerate a range of conditions as long as it is protected from temperatures under 8˚C.

As a desert plant your Sansevieria will not need much water. Water a small amount (around a quarter of a teacup) every week or so to keep the leaves a healthy green. But don’t worry if you are away for a couple of weeks they will manage fine without water up to a month.

Sansevierias are reasonably vigorous but their size can easily be contained by a small pot. To encourage growth repot your plant once a year in the Spring.

Problem Solving

Sansevierias are pretty resistant to neglect. However, if your plant does start looking sorry for itself, pull off any dead or soft leaves and move to a sunnier position. It is hard to under water these plants but heavy overwatering or sitting your plant in water can lead to mould developing and rotting of the roots. At the first sign of trouble stop watering and move to a sunnier, airier room and let it dry out for a good week or two before watering.
