Sansevieria large


Plant Description

The Sansevieria plant, also known as the snake plant or “mother-in-law's tongue” plant, this unique indoor greenery is a striking statement piece. Perhaps the only thing better than how good it looks is how easy it is to care for. You’ll have no problem caring for the Sansevieria, even if this is your first plant and you don’t have much time or energy to dedicate to the plant. It’s a balanced piece that gives you many benefits while still being beautiful.

Some of the Sansevieria’s most distinct characteristics are:

  • Large, thick leaves with a leathery texture
  • The leaves range between yellow, light green and dark green
  • Almost impossible to kill, making this incredibly easy to grow and keep alive
  • Adds complexity and texture to any area due to how their leaves look

Not the best plant i have ordered through bloomspace

Firstly, I highly rate, the speed and quality of delivery, the quality of the plants has always been top-notch. Unfortunately, this one plant was not overly impressive, i suspect it may have been close to the last one in stock. It had a total of only 5 leaves, and for the price, a much fuller plant could be obtained from bunnings. I have purchased quite a few plants from Bloomspace, and this is an anomaly, as I fully recommend them!

I'm slowly filling my house with plants from bloomspace.

Plant Guide

Let’s start with how the Sansevieria looks. You can see why it’s called the snake plant because the long, thick leaves grow straight up and look much like the animal they are named after. Bending slightly here and there, it’s like a snake in movement, going upward and growing tall. There’s also a banding pattern on the leaves going from yellow to light green to dark green, giving them a lovely aesthetic.

Another design characteristic that many people love are the texture of the leaves. They are very thick and have a leathery feel that also harkens back to snakes. They can grow to over a meter in length, and their leaves reflect a good amount of light and add a wonderful texture to any room or area. Just place it anywhere to add some complexity to your intended area.

While all this is great, you might prefer to own the Sansevieria plant because it’s one of the easiest plants to care for. Every plant needs two things: light and water. When it comes to both, the Sansevieria needs a minimal amount of them. It needs almost no light, making it ideal for apartment owners or anyone who isn’t home that frequently. They also don’t need any direct sunlight. Just some indirect light is more than enough for this plant to grow properly.

The same goes for water. This plant can withstand infrequent watering with ease while still looking strong and healthy. Even if you forget to water it here and there, the plant will adapt and still thrive despite the lack of attention. They also grow well in nearly any temperature or environment, making them great for novice owners or those who just can’t give their plants much attention. In short, you have to try to kill these plants because they will grow through anything.

So, if you’re looking for a plant that has an amazing design that adds a layer of complexity and texture to your room, and if you want a plant that can withstand even the worst growing conditions and still look lovely, then the sansevieria might be right for you. The snake-like leaves are truly beautiful and you’ll love what they add to your room.
