Plant Description:

Enhance your living space with the enduring elegance of the Sansevieria Laurentii, also known as Snake Plant, Mother-In-Law's Tongue, Bowstring Hemp, or Saint George's Sword. With its thin leaves adorned with yellow edges, this West African native adds a touch of sophistication to any setting. Known for its hardy nature, the snake plant thrives in various light conditions and is a low-maintenance choice for both beginners and seasoned plant enthusiasts.

Care Tips for a Happy Sansevieria Laurentii:

  • Light: Thrives in bright light, protected from direct sunlight; also adapts to shade, partial shade, or darker corners.
  • Watering: Occasional watering; only when soil is mostly dry; pour water until it drains from drainage holes; avoid overwatering.
  • Soil: Prefers loose, well-draining cactus potting soil; avoid peat as it retains too much moisture.
  • Temperature: Thrives in warm temperatures between 21°C and 32°C; withstands temperatures as low as 10°C; avoid drafts.
  • Humidity: Average room humidity is sufficient; wiping leaves occasionally reduces dust buildup.

Plant Well-Being Signs:

  • Root Rot: Watch for signs of root rot, such as brown and mushy roots; repot if necessary.
  • Leaf Yellowing or Curling: Indicates under-watering; adjust watering frequency to prevent dehydration.
  • Vibrant Colors: Place in indirect or filtered sunlight to encourage vibrant colors and healthy growth.


Is Sansevieria Laurentii suitable for low-light conditions?

While famously unfussy and tolerant of low-light conditions, placing Sansevieria Laurentii in indirect or filtered sunlight enhances its vibrant colors and overall health.

How often should I water my Snake Plant?

Less is best when it comes to watering Sansevierias. Allow the potting mixture to dry out completely before watering, and adjust frequency based on environmental conditions.

When is repotting necessary for a Snake Plant?

Repot Sansevieria Laurentii when it becomes top-heavy, risks toppling over, or exhibits signs of root rot. Use a slightly larger pot, and check the roots for signs of disease during repotting.
