Commonly referred to as the snake plant or mother-in-law’s tongue, Sansevierias grow in a wide range of lighting conditions from low indirect light, to direct sunlit spaces. They can tolerate neglect, making it easy for anyone to care for. Even helping to purify the air, this is definitely a great indoor plant to have. Sansevieria is a previously recognized genus of plants that has recently been included into the Dracaena genus.
A native of West Africa, the perennial Sansevieria Boncel is also known as the Starfish Sansevieria. The succulent Sansevieria Boncel’s short, fat cylindrical leaves spread out to resemble a fan, and like other succulents, the roots of the plant cannot be allowed to sit in water to prevent root rot.
